Can I Learn Orthodontics at Home?

Posted by POS Course Adviser on 7/17/20 11:56 AM

This article is part of the series called “Dentistry in the time of COVID-19”.

New COVID-19 restrictions have limited class meetings and traveling. Even as some restrictions are lifting, many dentists are wondering if they can still learn orthodontics at the same level and have the confidence to offer the procedures in their practices if they choose to join an online program.

We are committed to the safety of our students and instructors as well as your ability to provide quality orthodontic care and have made adjustments to ensure we can provide options for you.

We have added extra resources and learning options to make education accessible to all dentists including both virtual, in-person, and self-study options. See all our class formats.
