Every case is different, and as such each one has a best treatment plan option.

Participation in the Professional Advancement and Instructor Seminars does not guarantee Fellowship, Diplomate, or Instructor certification. All requirements of each tier must be met. The Professional Advancement and Instructor Seminars were created to help fast track interested participants to these prestigious levels of membership.

There will be computer work in this course; therefore it is encouraged that each participant has a computer to work with. We are going to work with Power Point so having that installed will be very helpful.

There will also be hands on training requiring basic orthodontic instruments such as bird beak pliers. More information on this will be provided to participants.

We can work with camera systems if you want to set up your camera for in office use. Bringing your equipment will be beneficial.

We will also plan to work with your own patients, therefore, records of one or two patients in .jpg format will really help for the last session. If your models are not digitized, then photos of the models will suffice.
