“I have had the opportunity to study under Dr. Terry Bennet and Dr. Mayoor Patel for 2 years now and I have thoroughly enjoyed his lectures and his approach to treating orofacial pain and sleep.

For anyone who is considering this challenging field of dentistry, I would strongly recommend attending Dr. Bennett’s and Patel’s courses.

Dr’s Bennett and Patel are a dynamic duo with a firm grasp on ALL topics of this field. Meeting them has truly changed my practice and I am forever grateful!”
