"We now have doctors, we have neurologists, and people from Yale New Haven Hospital sending us patients. We get referrals from other dentists as well. TruDenta is the best thing that has ever happened to our office from a financial standpoint."
- Dr. B. H. from Connecticut
"This was the missing link in my whole treatment plan."
- Dr. A. P. from Pennsylvania
"Understanding force has changed the way I practice, and I have been practicing for 35 years!"
- Dr. R. E. from Nevada
While the actual diagnostic and therapy portions of TruDenta are simple to learn and perform, a key part of our training process is to insure that all team members understand the WHY of what we do, not just the HOW. Not only are doctors and team members trained in the use of the various technologies included in the TruDenta system, but they are also educated as to the underlying science which makes treatment success possible.
The training process for learning the reasons behind TruDenta as well as the Assessment and Rehabilitation therapy protocols is broken up into two parts. The first part of training includes an outline of steps that will take you through the basics of TruDenta. These steps include:
Once these initial steps have been completed, you are ready for Part 2 of training. We will send some of our experienced trainers to your practice to ‘tie all of these pieces together’ for you. Through presentations with a high emphasis on ‘hands-on” learning, you will be guided and instructed through each process to improve on the skills you have practiced heretofore. Trainers will also share ideas from the most successful TruDenta practices in regards to therapy room setup, patient flow processes, marketing inside and outside of your practice, and anything else you have questions about! As the trainers see the inner workings of your practice, they can offer suggestions and ideas for helping you integrate TruDenta into your space and schedule.
And we can design the length and topics of said training based on YOUR needs and team!
In the past we have been limited as to how many team members could attend workshops and be involved with the training at dental schools because of seating space. We are very excited about this new opportunity of having trainers come to you because that space limitation no longer exists! Listening to our doctors wishes to have us come to their space so their entire team could be involved in this phase of training adds a new dimension to the overall goal of helping our doctors realize the vision they had when they joined TruDenta! And we couldn’t be more thrilled about it!
To fully understand the quality and value of the TruDenta training and support, please visit the doctor testimonial videos CLICK HERE. You will be surprised at how many say that this is the best training of any type they have ever attended. In addition to our skilled instructors and enthusiastic team members, many doctors comment that they have learned something entirely new and important for all of their dentistry.
After the completion of training, we survey all participants. One of the questions asks the respondent to rank the overall TruDenta training process: Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor. Of the last 500 surveys, 491 ranked it Excellent and 9 ranked it Good. There were no fair or poor ratings.
Each practice is assigned a TruDenta Practice Manager who is available to coordinate assistance from TruDenta staff doctors, practice management support personnel, marketing development executives and other resources. We pride ourselves in going the extra mile to insure that practices are successful both clinically and financially with TruDenta.
TruDenta executives and doctors host regular live conference calls and webinars for member practices. These one to two hour sessions cover a variety of topics from clinical to business development. Practices are notified of upcoming events via the quarterly TruDenta Member newsletter.
In many cases, only dental professionals can help the estimated 80 million Americans suffering from the painful symptoms caused by improper dental forces, called dentomandibular sensorimotor dysfunction (DMSD).

20% of your existing patients suffer from DMSD, as do 20% of all Americans. Your team members quickly assess patients for "red flags" (which indicate DMSD), utilizing TruDenta's patented technologies.
The National Institutes of Health estimate that over 80 million Americans suffer from one or more of the symptoms of DMSD, including:
• Chronic Headache
TruDenta uses digital force measurement technology, powered by Tekscan®, for evaluating the amount of bite force that is present during closure, at closure, and while chewing. The technology is so advanced that it actually calculates the bite force and motion on a tooth-by-tooth basis. This digital exam literally shows a movie of the bite force in action revealing abnormal forces in the nerves, muscles and ligaments that are often the cause of symptoms.
Bite balance is also calculated to identify potential issues within the overall chewing system. READ MORE
A normal opening for an adult is 53 mm to 57 mm. Limited or restricted range of motion (less than 40 mm) is a reduction in an individual’s ability for normal range of movement. Along with opening movement, an individual should be able to slide their jaw to the left and to the right at least 25 percent of their total mouth opening in a symmetrical fashion.
When restricted movement exists, an imbalance in the system is present, and breakdown of the system is likely to occur. READ MORE
The TruDentaROM is a system of hardware and software that digitally measures cervical range of motion (ROM) impairment based upon AMA guidelines. This directly affects the proprioceptive feedback system of the dental occlusion, TMJ, and the muscles of mastication.
ROM impairment is another “red flag” which assists doctors in accurately diagnosing symptoms that are often dental force related. This data enhances medical insurance collections and the collaboration with referring medical doctors. READ MORE
A typical case requires less than one hour of doctor time in the diagnosis and minor occlusal adjustments during the rehabilitation period.
Treatments are performed by a trained team member once per week, in less than one hour. The most severe cases require 12 treatments. Therapies are spa-like, non-invasive and require no drugs or needles. Most patients report dramatic results after the very fist treatment. Note: The majority of patients utilize an orthotic only during the treatment period, up to a maximum of 12 weeks. READ MORE
The goal of therapeutic ultrasound treatment is to return circulation to sore, strained muscles through increased blood flow and heat. Another goal is to break up scar tissue and deep adhesions through sound waves.
Therapeutic exposure to ultrasound reduces trigger point sensitivity and has been indicated as a useful clinical tool for managing myofacial pain. Additionally, ultrasound also has been shown to evoke antinociceptive effects on trigger points. READ MORE
Sub-threshold microcurrent stimula¬tion reduces muscle spasm and referral pain through low electrical signal. It also decreases lactic acid build-up and encourages healthy nerve stimulation. In particular, microcurrent electrotherapy has been shown to help increase mouth opening significantly.
• Reduces muscle spasm and referral pain through low electrical signal
• Decreases lactic acid build-up
• Encourages healthy nerve stimulation
• Increases mouth opening significantly
Low level laser/light therapy is one of the most widely used treatments in sports medicine to provide pain relief and rehabilitation of injuries. Over 200 randomized clinical trials have been published on low level laser therapy, half of which are on pain.
Low level laser/light therapy decreases pain and inflammation, accelerates healing of muscle and joint tissue 25 to 35 percent faster than without treatment, and reconnects neurological pathways of nerves to the brain stem, thereby inhibiting pain. READ MORE
