Comprehensive Orthodontic Training for Dental Professionals

Complete Orthodontic training structured in a logical sequence of an every day Orthodontic office flow.

Summary

This is a unique Orthodontic Training Course for the Dental Professionals (Doctors, Dental Hygienists, Dental Assistants, and Dental Auxiliary Staff) who are looking to expand their skill set into an orthodontic practice. It is designed to update your knowledge of latest orthodontic philosophies, treatment modalities and leading edge procedures, such as light force orthodontics, clear aligner therapy, and accelerated tooth movement.

The role of the Dental Team in orthodontics is a key and important one! From education, to assessment, to supportive therapies during orthodontic treatment and maintaining health, the Dental Team has the unique opportunity to impact this ever-growing area of dentistry. While most programs include some education on orthodontics, it is not covered to the extent for today’s demands.

The knowledge gained through Fridays lecture/didactic format is reinforced by Saturday’s clinical participation, allowing you the optimum learning experience.

Optional Internship (30 hours of chair time)

If you meet all the necessary academic requirements, you will be able to participate in an optional unpaid internship that will allow you to acquire additional hands-on experience in one of our partnered dental practices for no additional cost. (Can not exceed 3 months of course completion).
