Dr. Jay Gerber is the Director of Education at The Center for Occlusal Studies in Parkersburg, WV and founder of Gerber Ortho Studies. For over thirty years, Dr. Gerber has created and systematically updated his extensive orthodontic learning program exclusively for the general practitioner. His primary educational goals are for the doctor to learn how to provide treatment that results in a beautiful smile, a sound and lasting vertical dimension and long-term stability of the TMJs. His courses teach how to diagnose and provide treatment of upper airway dysfunctions through a multi-disciplinary approach.


Gerber Ortho Studies offers comprehensive orthodontic, occlusion airway, craniocervical, and TMD training for general practitioner dentists and their staff members. Dr. Gerber's orthodontic and TMD practice is also part of The Center which allows for clinical and mini-residency style training. Continuing education course topics include orthodontic diagnosis, straight wire mechanics, and case finishing with more than 20 courses offered each year. 

Our Center and its curriculum provide the dental professional with the opportunity to expand his or her patient base and to offer current patients a more stable solution to occlusal rehabilitation, occlusal failures, orthodontics and orofacial pain. The value realized from our courses goes beyond monetary rewards. It offers the dental team a fresh perspective on the practice of dentistry.

Course Overviews


What a difference Dr. Gerber’s courses have made in the way that I practice dentistry. There is so much that I have learned from him that was not available to me through dental school. His training has allowed me to help kids and patients grow into more attractive, healthy and functional adults...what a difference he has made for me and the hundreds of others that he has helped along the way.
