Getting involved in neuromuscular dentistry can be overwhelming on many fronts from learning new clinical skills to redefining team roles and expectations to paying for all of those courses! When challenges arise, it can often be difficult to imagine a point where one will recognize that they have achieved success in any form.
The Chinese symbol for crisis is composed of two brush strokes – one representing danger and the other opportunity. Dr. Markham will relate elements of his personal journey to demonstrate how brilliant and memorable moments can be borne out of crisis. He will also provide confirmation that when you are passionate about something, the extra effort will be rewarded in ways that supercede financial gain.
This program is designed for dentists and team members who feel the need for an extra push to continue the pursuit of their dreams. Dr. Markham’s team, affectionately known as ‘The Remarkhamables”, may also assist in creating some lasting memories for those in attendance.
- A brief review of some of the physiologic effects that emotional well being can have on an individual;
- The power that video testimonials can have in your practice;
- To provide examples of using hardships to create opportunity.

Speaker: Drew Markham
Drew Markham grew up in Kingston, Ontario, and earned an honour’s bachelor degree in physiology at the University of Toronto in 1993. He went on to earn his dental degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1998.
During the summer of 2003, Drew went on an LVI cruise to Alaska where he first heard Bill Dickerson speak, as well as many other dentists who had at one time been in similar unfulfilling practice situations. Bill and the others spoke of how they not only took charge of their professional destinies, but were able to treat headaches, TMJ problems, as well as many other issues through the incredible science of neuromuscular dentistry. This was the revelation that Drew had been looking for as to how to achieve the practice of his dreams.
Inspired by what he had seen and heard, over the next four years Drew left his partnership, moved back to Canada, associated with another LVI dentist, and finally purchased his own practice. All the while, Drew continued to invest in his education through the Continuum, as well as in the incredible consultants offered through LVI. In June of 2008, Drew finally opened a solo practice in the small town of Huntsville, Ontario focusing on general, as well as neuromuscular and aesthetic dentistry. Later that year, he was honored and proud to achieve his LVI Fellowship.
Drew has been very fortunate to have had a number of professional opportunities arise since receiving his fellowship which include:
LVI Clinical Instructor – (Rookie of the Year 2010)
LVI Regional Director
IACA Board Member
ODA Core Economic Committee Member
