Course Overview

This course is both clinical and theoretical with chairside 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 and patients in treatment and in retention from in previous courses will be managed.

There is a requirement that attendants participate in seminars on patient management, theoretical presentations and journal reviews. There is an expectation that participants will prepare themselves for each course session in journal reading and case presentation skills. It is the intention of the course to present to all participants a broad range of orthodontic problems and their possible management.

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