Clinical Skills Day – orthopaedics and orthodontics with Skip Truitt

clinical skills day Skip TruittThe inaugural Clinical Skills Day on Friday 12 June is your opportunity to watch Skip Truitt discuss orthopaedics and orthodontics.

More and more orthodontic cases are now treated on a non-extraction basis and at an earlier age by general dental practitioners.

If you wish to develop and grow the private orthodontic element of your practice, incorporating maxillofacial orthopaedics and orthodontics (MOO) will help to create reliable, significant revenues, whilst retaining the whole patient family.

As part of this webinar sponsored by Archformbyte on the Clinical Skills Day, participants will therefore learn how to treat primary, mixed, and permanent dentition cases. They will also learn how to integrate maxillofacial orthopaedics and orthodontics to expand their private practice.

What will the webinar cover?

  • Concepts of orthopaedic treatment
  • The difference between dental and skeletal malocclusion
  • Cephalometric evaluation
  • The importance of anchorage
  • Appliance selection, construction and activation
  • Case examples of class I, II and III malocclusions
  • Correction of anterior and posterior cross bites
  • And anterior open and closed bites.
