2015/2016 Orthodontics Courses

Everything you wanted to know about Functional Appliances (but were afraid to ask) - Saturday 14 November 2015

In this course you will be guided by Dr Morris Rapaport to not only learn how and when to use functional appliances, but also gain a thorough understanding of their theoretical underpinning to give you confidence in using them clinically.

What appliance modifications are necessary in high angle or asymmetric cases? How do you recognise any shortcomings in the appliance the laboratory has sent you? How do these appliances work? These and other questions will be answered during this "full on" day course.

Interspersed throughout the formal lectures are case reports and more case reports - preferably your cases. So many points are demonstrated during group discussion of cases. You are encouraged to collect records and send them to us in an electronic format at least one week prior to the course for inclusion in the program. The day ends with a brief self-assessment test, which will show you what you learnt.
