How it is organized

  • Education and training in Orthodontics since 2001

    • The teachers are professionals from Italy and Abroad, with clinical, teaching and research experience in Dentistry, Cranio-Mandibular Disorders and Maxillofacial Surgery.
    • Courses focus on theory and practice as well as providing clinical seminars
    • Courses are open to practitioners (Dentists and Orthodontists) for professional development in science and research either daily, during the weekend or annually.
    • Tuition is conducted in small groups (max. 12-15) to insure quality teaching and individualized instruction.
    • Instruction is conducted through examples of clinical cases, focusing on the theoretical approach as well as their practical management, with time for discussion.
    • Innovative teaching methods based on well-advanced technology (e.g. cephalometric analysis and examination using digital models, 3D scans, models, digital photography and radiology,  orthodontic set-up and Visual Treatment Objective).
    • Participants are guided in reaching a diagnosis of a clinical case and in choosing the appropriate treatment for every specific issue.
    • Particular attention is paid to appropriate clinical procedures, the keeping of complete diagnostic records and to clear communication with patients.
