We have taught hundreds of dentists last month at our preview course, 1-day Intro to Orthodontics Seminars. These students were candidly honest about their experiences.
As a general dentist, you may have already considered adding orthodontic treatment skills to your practice.
You might have heard from other dentists the benefits of adding GP orthodontics. Increased income, better treatment control, and improved patient retention are all benefits you can expect.
But at the same time, it also feels like a risk to undertake the training.
Why spend more time and money training in a skill that you can refer out? It’s a reasonable question and one that Progressive Orthodontics has heard many times.
If you're reading this article, you probably want to improve your care with orthodontics and may be wondering what's the best way to learn.
As a dentist, you're busy. At POS, we've provided different formats to match your different needs. You can learn to provide comprehensive orthodontics with your choice of a Live or Internet Assisted Training (IAT) format. This video and table shows you how POS' two learning formats compare.
The Finishing Stage of orthodontics is a fine balance of both art and science, and can often be one of the most stressful aspects of an orthodontic case. Proper finishing techniques are critical to ensuring well-balanced occlusion and long-term stability.
POS tenured instructor, Dr. Jeffery Taylor, details some of the most common errors he sees in case finishing. We hope that being aware of these ahead of time will prevent you from making these mistakes in your own cases. If you’re looking to further improve your case finishing techniques, our 2-day class will provide you with the hands-on training and protocols to take the stress out of the finishing stage.
This is a case study done of POS graduate and instructor, Dr. Maribel Eizaguirre. Learn how she grew her orthodontic care by treating this advanced* gummy smile case.
Wondering which types of orthodontic patients you can help? Even if you have no previous orthodontic experience, you can help the majority of your orthodontic patients. Read this blog to see the 33 case types that you can start treating while learning in POS' Comprehensive Orthodontic Series.
Update 2019 - Asymmetry in Orthodontics
Progressive Orthodontic Seminars' annual Update Seminar this year features the hot topic, Asymmetry in Orthodontics. Students will learn how to master the most under-diagnosed aspect of orthodontics with POS' new Asymmetry Protocol. Learn how to improve your asymmetry diagnosis so you can see more details on patients that walk into your practice.
Take a quick look at these patients and test your eye for symmetry diagnosis.
We asked an advanced tax strategist and CPA accountant, “How can dentists take home more of their income?” Lubna Channo is a bestselling co-author of “You Can Deduct THAT?” She works with many dentists (and is married to one too). Many doctors were wanting updated guidance since the recent tax changes. Channo shares expert advice for you to help in your end-of-year planning.
SmileStream orthodontic software is a robust way for doctors to diagnose, treat, and learn orthodontics. The mobile app version of SmileStream has many of the features, and it now includes videos.
In the spirit of giving thanks, we are sharing a story that we received from POS Instructor, Dr. Sarmad N. Yassen. When his patient Fatima lost hope, he successfully used Growth Prediction Protocols to treat her Class III tendency growing case to give her the smile she wanted.
