Got a Question About The Ortho-Restorative Ask Here
The ortho-restorative course teaches dentists how to deliver a complete solution to their patients by combining their existing orthodontic experience with restorative and aesthetic dentistry. This course is perfect for those who have taken one of our orthodontic courses and have experience in treating their patients with the Inman Aligner, clear aligners or fixed braces. For dentists with less experience we would advise you take the two day ABB course where orthodontics with Inman and clear aligners are covered on day one. The methods taught focus on providing safe and ethical dentistry with delegates learning everything needed to finish cases post-orthodontics and be able to ensure long-term stability and function.
