A huge congratulations are in order for our very own Dr. Kevin S. Berry who recently obtained a Master of Science in Orofacial Pain and Oral Medicine from the prestigious Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry USC. The 37-month program provided Dr. Berry with advanced training and knowledge of orofacial pain and oral medicine including sleep medicine. Dr. Berry plans to apply his new knowledge to current sleep apnea, TMJ, and headache treatments here at TMJ Therapy & Sleep Center of Colorado.

The Degree Curriculum

Over the course of 37 months, Dr. Berry completed 14 online courses where he gained additional knowledge about the diagnosis, pathobiology, and treatment of maxillofacial diseases and disorders. This involved attending a weekly video conference where students analyzed, diagnosed, and prepared treatment plans for TMJ disorders as well as neoplastic, dysplastic, infectious, neoplastic proliferative, and ulcerative oral and pharyngeal mucosal diseases.

He was also required to attend two-week courses at USC every summer for two weeks each year during the three-year period. These courses involved face-to-face assessment courses and clinical, written, and oral exams. Students also gained experience diagnosing and treating patients at the USC OFOPM center.

During the program, Dr. Berry was also required to prepare a portfolio of cases and present a research project report. Lastly, Dr. Berry also learned about working with patients with various neurogenic, salivary, odontogenic, and osseous infections, diseases, and tumors. These included oral spasticity, migraine, chronic daily headache, sleep apnea disorders, and neuropathic pain.
