The Academy of Gp Orthodontics has provided comprehensive orthodontic continuing education courses for the General Practitioner for over 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.

Fred Der, D.D.S. graduated from University of Western Ontario in 1980, and is currently in private practice in Keswick, Ontario. Dr. Der completed the Academy of Gp Orthodontics training program in 2000. He has been mentored by Dr. Roy Holexa, Dr. Ron Austin, and Dr. Sylvan Morein. Dr. Der has been a host dentist and clinical instructor since 2002, in the AGpO's Canadian program. First ever outside of the United States.

He is a past AGpO president and currently teaches several courses in combination with Dr. Holexa in Canada. He received his fellowship in Orthodontics from AGpO and IAO in 2008, and his FAGD, and MAGD in 2005. He is currently a member of the Canadian Dental Association.

"This course was Terrific!!! Best hands-on course I have ever taken!! The classroom instruction and clinical experience has given me the confidence to diagnose and treat orthodontic cases. I wanted to incorporate orthodontics into my practice for many years but was hesitant to do so. Hands-on with real patients and fantastic clinical instructors is the only way to go and that is what you get with this course."
