Course Description:

Trends in dentistry change and evolve. At one time, each specialty basically did its own thing, but today’s general practice is becoming more comprehensive. This trend can be attributed to several factors. First of all, Americans are becoming dental consumers. With the influx of new orthodontic techniques, there are now new ways to reposition teeth more quickly and more aesthetically than with traditional means.

1) The economic factors of running a successful general practice, now more than ever, call for the dentist to incorporate additional revenue generators. The general public has reached an enlightened phase when it comes to aesthetics and actively seeks out smile improvements. In fact, more than 5 million Americans are in orthodontic treatment each year.

2) Balance that knowledge with the fact that only about 20% of general dentists perform orthodontic techniques, but the other 80% have a healthy percentage of their own patients in need of this treatment.

3) When general practitioners (GPs) add orthodontics to their skill sets, this allows them to produce more beautiful results in the smile zone and, with the right training, will also allow them to treat more complex cases when correcting the occlusion is needed.

4) Minor tooth movement and limited orthodontics are becoming more and more popular in the general dental practice where treatment is often limited to the maxillary anterior segment. This seems to be a comfortable place to start integrating orthodontics into a general practice. Nevertheless, spending the additional time to learn straight-wire comprehensive orthodontic techniques adds more value to what can be provided and improves the level of service for the patient.

Course Goals:

  1. Provide a sound protocol of diagnosis and treatment that is logical, safe, and repeatable.
  2. Offers both classroom and hands-on training.
  3. Provide educational reference material in the form of a technique manual and additional techniques.
  4. Provide continued mentorship for you as you take on more cases and have questions.
  5. Provide training in minor tooth movement in the smile zone as well as comprehensive treatment to correct the molar class.
  6. Give you the skills to know what cases to accept and what to refer.
  7. Working with your Referring Orthdontists as a Team.

Course Objectives:

Dentists will be provided 2 “Live” patients from initial consultation to final retainer delivery and monitor:

  • Initial orthodontic examination and comprehensive treatment plan.
  • Orthodontic records and management system
  • Photography and Case presentation
