Orthodontic Courses

These are not courses taught by general dentists or academics with little real-world practice experience. This continuum is taught by practicing orthodontists who have personally treated many thousands of patients and have developed highly efficient, predictable, and profitable treatment systems that they implement every day in their own multi-million dollar practices.

You can think of this course as a condensed orthodontic residency that distills all of the important and relevant diagnostic and clinical information techniques needed to treat a wide array of orthodontic cases using predictable everyday clinical problem solving.
