Most popular module. Designed & formulated to equip the clinician with essential knowledge and skills required to treat patients with braces in the most efficient & effective methods. This is an intense 3 days of learning how to diagnose & treat orthodontic patients. It covers a broad range of topics from cast analysis, facial analysis, cephalometry, phases of treatment planning, bracket placement, wire and accessory placement & retention. All aspects of training are coupled with hands- on & typodont exercises for maximum clinical experience. It also eliminates a lot of unnecessary fluff and empirical philosophies so that the clinician may focus only on the real goals; treating patients to an excellent clinical standard. This module sets the foundation for subsequent modules but it is by no means just an introduction to orthodontics, candidates who complete this module will be equipped with all the necessary knowledge and skills to begin treating patients orthodontically immediately.
