Comprehensive Orthodontics is an extended, two-part, 8-day comprehensive continuing education in orthodontics from an outstanding orthodontic educator and clinician, designed to educate the practitioner who wants to add orthodontics to his/her practice, or extend his/her present orthodontic services.

This course provides an extended comprehensive education covering nearly all aspects of orthodontics. It will take you from diagnosis, through treatment, and into retention. Protocols will include early interceptive procedures, functional orthopedic therapy, fixed "straight-wire" treatment, and both fixed and removable retention appliances.

This course is a distillization of the concepts and procedures provided in a graduate school orthodontic curricula of these two fine programs.
