12 Session Hands-on Orthodontic Course

McHenry, Illinois Course 2013

Academy of Gp Orthodontics 2013 McHenry Course
Become knowledgeable and confident in orthodontics
The Academy of Gp Orthodontics has provided comprehensive orthodontic continuing education courses for over 25 years. Our 12-session hands-on courses are designed to be the closest CE Course to an Orthodontic Residency for the General Practitioner. A highly qualified team of instructors, clinical instructors, and hosts provide on-going support and invaluable comprehensive clinical hands-on training with direct patient treatment to ensure excellent case results. You will have the same instructor for each session with monitoring privileges upon completion. Courses are limited in number of participants to maintain a dynamic student-to-instructor learning experience in a clinical setting.

The course meets two days every six to eight weeks and consists of a Friday classroom instruction and a Saturday comprehensive clinical hands-on training where you will treat patients, not typodonts. Your site host and instructor will provide all the patients, materials, and supplies for the clinical sessions. The lectures include identification and understanding of the various types of patient malocclusions and how they can be treated effectively utilizing the Differential Straight-Arch® Technique. The knowledge gained through the Friday lecture/seminar format is reinforced by Saturday's clinical participation, allowing you the optimum learning experience.

Course Objectives include:
  • Diagnosis
  • Active Treatment
  • De-bracketing
  • Ortho Practice Management
  • Treatment Planning
  • Case Finishing
  • Retention
