When a clinician has had a taste and satisfaction of the building blocks of foundational orthodontics, they often want to build on these skill-sets and knowledge to learn more. Clinicians who aim to push themselves to the next level of orthodontic training are candidates for the Orthodontic Advancer module. This module delivers three days of extra biomechanics, mechanotherapy, segmental mechanics and also trains candidates on how to use bone anchorage devices to maximize desired movements and minimize side effects. Explore the latest tecniques on accelerated tooth movement and how this can be achieved easily in a clinical setting. Widen the envelope of basic orthodontic treatment with the Orthodontic Advancer module. Please note that this module is targeted as a refresher for orthodontists or for clinicals with prior orthodontic training.
