The Academy of Gp Orthodontics has provided comprehensive orthodontic continuing education courses for the General Practitioner for 30 years. Our 12-session hands-on courses are designed to be the closest CE Course to an orthodontic residency for the General Practitioner. Courses meet one weekend every two months and consist of a Friday classroom instruction and a Saturday comprehensive clinical hands-on training with direct patient treatment to ensure excellent case results. You will have the same instructor for all 12 sessions and each course is limited in number of participants in order to maintain an optimum, dynamic student-to-instructor learning experience in a clinical setting.

Confidently incorporate orthodontics into your general practice! Course tuition and expenses are easily recovered by beginning three to four cases in your own practice by Session III. Students are encouraged to bring patient records to the Friday sessions for case mentoring and troubleshooting. In addition to treating patients, participants will develop a digital library by taking intra-oral photographs of hands-on patients. All patients, materials, and supplies for the clinical sessions are provided by the Academy. Tuition also includes monitoring for one year upon completion of the course, with current AGpO membership.

"Going into the course, I had no idea about tooth movement and fixed orthodontics. At about 4 months into the course I was so amazed at what I had learned and put into practice. I have recommended it to my colleagues already. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn about Tip-Edge."
