What our delegates said…

Adult Ortho is a growing market with big providers driving patient awareness, the course has been fantastic for me, the small group makes for a very intimate environment where I know I can ask the Specialist Orthodontist all the questions I need to for each case

I had toyed with the idea of doing other shorter courses but wanted something more comprehensive, I’ve not been disappointed, I feel I now have the knowledge and confidence to be able to select cases that I know I can do.

After spending several years honing my restorative skills I realised that orthodontics needed to be part of that and I needed to combine them if I was to move away from doing piecemeal dentistry. Whilst having a formal structure to the course, the specialist is happy for everyone to contribute making for a good, relaxed tutorial based environment.
