AACP 29th Annual International Clinical Symposium

Dr. Pick attended this meeting and received two academic and clinical certifications. Dr. Pick joined a group of very select sleep dentists by adding certification from the American Board of Craniofacial Pain. He was named a Diplomate of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine, a relatively new certification that recognizes the connection between the jaw position and the openness of the airway. This position also is critical in determining any underlying jaw joint functional issues.

Also, Dr. Pick was recognized for his efforts in attaining Diplomate, American Board of Craniofacial Pain in May of 2013. This meeting’s graduation ceremonies for both Diplomates were academic and clinical goals that were years in progress and preparation.

Dr. Pick’s certifications involved hundreds of hours of continuing education hours pertaining to sleep medicine, craniofacial pain, and TMJ treatments. Written exams, oral exam presentations, and case studies were the requirements for these particular certifications.

These difficult Diplomate accomplishments are truly a recognition of Dr. Pick’s quest in providing the best diagnostic and treatment services for his patients.
