COURSE PRESENTATION

From an anatomical viewpoint, the oropharyngeal region is one of the most complex areas of the human body. In these two webinars, Dr Willard will attempt to link the anatomy, physiology and development of this area to explain the mechanisms underlying chewing and swallowing.

We believe that an in-depth knowledge of these regions is fundamental in clinical practice. When facing health issues in the oropharyngeal area, we are dealing not only with the alterations in function but also the consequences on other systems like the dental and gastrointestinal.

 

The webinar recording will remain available in your account for viewing for the entire week following the event.
