2015 - Orthodontics II Program

Please note this course is open for registration from midday on Friday 21 November 2014.

Orthodontics II: course overview

This course is both clinical and theoretical with chair-side sessions, lectures and seminars. The clinical component of the course is designed to provide practical instruction and experience in the placement and adjustment of both fixed and removable appliances. New patients will be assessed, diagnosed and treated, whilst patients receiving treatment and in retention from prior years will be managed.

There is a requirement that registrants participate in seminars on patient management, theoretical presentations and journal reviews. There is an expectation that participants will prepare themselves for each course session by reading pre-assigned course materials including but not limited to journal articles. They will also need to ensure that they are able to present cases to the group succinctly and precisely. It is the intention of the course to present to all participants a broad range of orthodontic problems and management options.

This course is designed to allow those who have completed Orthodontics I to further pursue and apply the presented treatment philosophies.
