Cranial Indicator System

Course Description: 

The Cranial Indicator System represents one of the major missing links in the evolution of dentistry. It was developed to assess the cranial bones three dimensionally before, during, and after any dental revision. No other system provides the accuracy to monitor the cranium like the Cranial Indicators. The twenty-eight bones of the skull are directly impacted by any revision of the occlusal table. It is imperative that dentists develop the palpatory skills to diagnose cranial distortions as a baseline prior to treatment, during treatment, and at the completion of treatment. This system enables practitioners to monitor the cranial alignment during any type of revision and modify occlusal contacts to restore cranial bone balance. 

Since each tooth is neurologically connected directly to the brain, alterations in tooth and cranial alignment have the potential of causing physical and physiological disturbances anywhere in the body.

This presentation is a must for any dental practitioner. You will have a more realistic understanding of the functional importance for the necessity of correcting the occlusal cranial complex.

Dr. Gerald H. Smith’s Brief Curriculum Vitae

Doctor Gerald H. Smith is a recognized international authority on craniomandibular somatic disorders with a focus on resolving chronic pain. He has a license to practice integrative medicine and is a member of the World organization of Natural Medicine. He is the author of a landmark textbook, Cranial-Dental-Sacral Complex and the first researcher in the world to radiographically document cranial bone movement by means of the Dental Orthogonal Radiographic Analysis System. Doctor Smith also developed and patented the world’s first cranial motion precision attachment to permit cranial motion in fixed bridgework that crosses the maxillary midline. Doctor Smith is also the originator of the Occlusal Cranial Balancing Technique, the world’s first occlusal system to balance cranial bone and spinal alignment. He has also contributed equally important books, Reversing CancerHeadaches Aren’t ForeverAlternative Treatments For Conquering Chronic PainRemove the “Splinters” and Watch the Body Heal, and Cancer Deconstructed. His books present a major paradigm shift by integrating osteopathic, chiropractic, dental, medical, physical therapy and nutritional concepts. Doctor Smith’s 53 plus years of clinical research and practice has uncovered several of the major missing links for the cause of chronic pain, post-concussion syndrome, cancer, and many illnesses that have eluded conventional medicine. He was an invited speaker at Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital, Yonsi Memorial Hospital in Seoul Korea, Holistic Medical Association, Fordham Paige Nutritional Study Club, and other prestigious meetings.  He was a past-president of the Holistic Dental Association and editor of its journal,  and past president of the Pennsylvania Craniomandibular Society. He has a specialty practice in chronic pain, nutrition and dental orthopedics/orthodontics in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.

This course is a prerequisite for attending a hands-on course in Dr. Smith’s office.
