What you will learn
The objective of your course is to provide you a solid and confident knowledge of orthodontics, enabling you to provide quality long-term care to your patients. This occurs with a complete understanding of the biologic basis of tooth movement and functional appliances, growth, mechanical principles, diagnosis of problems, and efficient clinical application in an affordable, profitable manner. The five major divisions of the course content outline are (1) biological science; (2) physical science; (3) clinical science; (4) clinical experience; and (5) management science.
How you will learn
With an integrated approach to diagnosis and treatment, your orthodontic training will include observation of orthodontic procedures through computer presentations. You will follow patient treatment from initial examination through sophisticated finishing procedures. Typodont exercises will be used to develop your wirebending skills and to reinforce the logical mechanical sequences for treating all major orthodontic problems. Cephalometric tracing exercises, lectures, reading assignments, reviews of literature and case presentations by students will all be part of your learning process.
