8:00AM - 3:00PM


Course Outline:
Most dental audiences are reluctant to attend CE courses put on by orthodontists because of the emphasis on cephalometry, orthodontic appliance systems, and most things that have very little meaning to clinical dentists. How has orthodontics changed, and what do you need to know? We have greatly expanded our vision to include the face, smile, and the teeth. The upsurge in interdisciplinary dentistry has brought the feel of orthodontics well beyond “braces” and solving occlusal problems. Dr. Sarver strongly feels that the orthodontic process is not just a two-year transaction, but an opportunity for a long-term development and transformative experience for the patient involving all phases of dentistry and medicine to deliver most rewarding outcomes.

Learning Objectives:
By the end of the course the clinician will be able to:

  1. Broaden your “esthetic eye” showing you have looked at patients in a different way.
  2. Demonstrate a new diagnostic model with an emphasis on smiles and appearance without diminishing functional treatment goals.
  3. To aspire changing your treatment planning process from print problem-oriented to goal oriented.
  4. To clarify your objectives and treatment strategies through checklist designed to provide a framework for fluidity in treatment planning.
