Orthodontics 1
Theoretical and practical orthodontic training

For orthodontic treatment to be successful at any level, it is essential to have a clear understanding of normal growth and development of the dento-facial complex and to possess the skills to recognise developing malocclusion.

The course provides this knowledge, which you can build upon to improve your diagnostic skills. The scope of treatment and appliances that could be part of general practice is included. 

Treatment with selected removable and fixed appliances will be discussed. With this knowledge, if you so wish, you may be able to participate in Orthodontics II which is more clinically based and of longer duration. As a stand-alone course, you will develop skills to recognise abnormal occlusions in both the developing and permanent dentitions, with guidelines for treatment options.
