COURSE OUTLINE

Pre-course Module (Online)

Designed to prepare you for Theory 1, this online module defines basic orthodontic and aesthetic concepts and emphasises the importance of arch shape in crowding cases. It also gives you a thorough understanding of these essential principles before beginning the course.

The Pre-course module can take between 30 to 60 minutes to complete.


Theory 1 (Presentation) 

We’ll instruct you on the recent changes in aesthetic dentistry and modern day patient expectations, before looking in detail at how to assess suitable cases and achieve predictable orthodontic movement using sequential aligners, together with impression taking, IPR and attachments. We also introduce ClinCheck treatment planning software.

Your attendance will be required for the full day. A typical day will start at 8am and finish at 5pm and includes breaks during the morning, lunch and afternoon. Catering is provided.


Clinical 1

You must bring an approved patient* suitable for treatment along for a 90 minute appointment during this workshop (appointments are booked on a first come first serve basis and your patient is only required to attend for the 90 minute appointment). Perhaps a patient offered a financial incentive, or a friend or relative. You’ll then work with the other participants to assess all the attending patients.

We focus on the critical skills you need to achieve predictable outcomes, and allow you the rare opportunity to treat a multitude of cases simultaneously in a clinical setting. By the end of the workshop you’ll have mastered case assessment, impression taking, bite registrations, photographic records (taking intra oral and extra oral photos) and completing lab order forms and will also be certified to start treating patients.

Your attendance will be required for the full day. A typical day will start at 8am and finish at 4pm and includes breaks during the morning, lunch and afternoon. Catering is provided.

*Refer to Protocol for Enrolment, Patient Selection.


Theory 2 (Presentation)

During this 4-6 month update you’ll return to review progress of the treatment of the current cases and discuss any problems you may have had.

We’ll also provide updates on product and technology changes, and look at troubleshooting, predictable midcourse correction, refinements and retention – and review more complex cases and tooth movement.

Your attendance will be required for the full day. A typical day will start at 9am and finish at 5pm and includes breaks during the morning, lunch and afternoon. Catering is provided.
