The Orthodontics 2013 Series
A series of three coordinated courses
An increasing number of dentists are incorporating orthodontics into their practices. This is a series of three coordinated courses designed with those dentists in mind. They are spread over a period of time to allow meaningful, clinical hands-on experience to be gained.
"This is the only hospital based course in Australia run by university academic staff", Professor Ali Darendeliler
Course participants are assigned patients to manage under the supervision of University appointed tutors. Participants take full orthodontic records and prepare their treatment plans in a group seminar situation. At the clinical sessions participants will place the fixed appliances and manage the cases through to the removal of fixed appliances and the fitting of retainers. Participants will also see orthodontic patients on review and in retention from previous course participants. This format is not offered anywhere else in Australia.
The Orthodontics program is structured as three coordinated courses
- Orthodontics 1 - January 2013 (Pre-requisite for Ortho 2)
- Orthodontics 2 - 12 monthly sessions commencing March 2013
- Orthodontics 3 - 12 half day sessions commencing March 2013
Orthodontics 1 - Pre-requiste for Ortho 2 or standalone refresher
For orthodontic treatment to be successful at any level, it is essential to have a basic understanding of normal growth and development of the dento-facial complex and to possess the skills to recognise developing malocclusion.
