Team Dentist Course
As the fields of sports medicine and sports dentistry evolve, so too does the role and responsibilities of the Team Dentist. The clinician requires sport specific knowledge and special training in order to work to his or her capacity in amateur, elite, or professional sporting events. In the Academy we feel that this course will help the practitioners carry out their responsibilities in an appropriate manner. This course is primarily designed to meet the educational needs of clinical dentists from all fields of dentistry who care for and participate in sports teams as part of their practice. With the completion of the ASD Team Dentist Course the clinician will have been presented with the information needed to perform his or her duties as a team dentist.

                              The responsibilities of a “Team Dentist” may include:
