Functional orthodontic-orthopedic appliances can aid tremendously in treating the muscular imbalances and skeletal problems in Class II malocclusions. Plus, these appliances can increase vertical dimension permanently. As an adjunct to banded orthodontics, we have found that our scope of treatment can be more comprehensive.
The program presentation will be a combination of slides; demonstrations; lectures; and clinical procedures performed by the students. Also, depending upon the locale of your specific program, actual clinical work and review on your patients may be available.
Select any of the courses below for detailed descriptions.
Drs. Bond and Macdonald will present an up to date intensive orthodontic lecture series to help general practitioners and paedodontists to not only select the orthodontic cases that are within their skill level but also refer out to the specialist the cases which are not.
The entire teaching program is centered around individualized attention; therefore the groups will be kept to a small number to allow each participant to achieve the maximum competency. The course is also supplemented with manuals, texts and selected handouts. Actual banding/bracketing experience will be gained through lab procedures performed by each member of the group.
