Learn how to recognize these complex cases that look easy through an organized new patient exam. We will discuss how to obtain an accurate history and how to recognize more difficult cases so we can offer patients predictable treatment options. This program will help you become more confident when treatment planning and discussing treatment options with patients.


Speaker Bio:

Dr. McKee graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1980 and earned his dental degree from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry in Dr. McKee says, “I have loved the combination of art and science that dentistry provides every day in a small family-owned business. Addressing both the clinical concerns of patients and the managerial responsibilities of private practice has been challenging and deeply satisfying at the same time.”
Dr. McKee has lectured both nationally and internationally for more than 25 years. Additionally, he is a published author who writes the Occlusion/TMD section of the “Annual Review of Selected Dental Literature,” published each year in the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, along with textbooks and article contributions.
He has maintained a private practice, AIRE Dental Group, in Downers Grove, Illinois, since 1984 and has experience treating a wide variety of cases with a focus on predictable restorative dentistry.
Dr. McKee provides a new perspective on occlusion and TM joints that help dentists understand how structural changes in the jaw joints influence not only occlusion and airway anatomy but also the growth of the mandible and the maxilla.
As a valued Spear Resident Faculty member in 2017, Dr. McKee directs several Study Clubs and serves as an instructor in Spear's “Demystifying Occlusion” seminar and Spear's “Advanced Occlusion” workshop.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. McKee enjoys the humbling pastime of golf and spending time with his family.
