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.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Roy Holexa, D.D.S., began his orthodontic training in 1985 under the direction of the late Dr. Charles Yates, utilizing the Begg method of orthodontic treatment. He served as a teaching assistant to Dr. Yates in 1989. He began using the Differential Straight-Arch¬ģ Technique when it was introduced in 1987. Dr. Holexa is a member of the American Orthodontic Society and past president of the Academy of Gp Orthodontics. He has actively served on the Academy's Board of Directors and is currently serving on the Advisory Board. In September 1994 Dr. Holexa was acknowledged for his outstanding achievements as clinician and was the first recipient of the Academy's Charles D. Yates Distinguished Service Award. Dr. Holexa has also developed courses for dental auxiliaries interested in expanding their knowledge of orthodontics and its incorporation into the general practice.

Dr. Holexa graduated from Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1976, where he was a member of the teaching faculty. He also served as a clinical supervising dentist at Harper College dental programs in Palatine, Illinois and was instructor for Head and Neck Anatomy in the dental hygiene program. Dr. Holexa resides in Fountain Hills, Arizona where he is currently a Comprehensive Care Unit Clinical Director at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health in Mesa. He is an alumnus of the L.D. Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education, a member of the American Dental Association and component dental societies.

The American Dental Education Association (ADEA), the organization responsible for all dental education in this country, recently honored Dr. Holexa. He was one of only 22 educators selected nationwide to participate in the ADEA Leadership Institute. Dr. Holexa will have the opportunity to interact with the leaders of dental education in the United States. The Academy of GP Orthodontics is proud to have Dr. Holexa as one of our 12- session hands-on course instructors. The training he will receive at the Institute will assist him in continuing to be one of the leaders in dental education.

"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."
- A. Omilabu, D.D.S.
