“I have taken multiple orthodontic courses but did not have the confidence to jump into a case until I took Dr. Williams’ course. He gave me the confidence to start orthodontics in my general practice and he is always there to answer any questions you may have, even outside of class.”



"It has been a privilege to learn from Dr. Williams. His kind manner, sense of humor, and encyclopedic knowledge of all facets of general practice orthodontics (past, present, and future!) are a huge benefit. I know that I can rely on him as a colleague and a resource as I continue in orthodontics and expand my practice."



"Dr. Williams has vast knowledge and experience in orthodontics from a GP perspective. Dr. Williams is very approachable, accommodating, and makes learning and participation easy. I would strongly encourage any GP considering incorporating ortho into their practice to start with Dr. Williams’ Level 1 (Basic) and Level 2 (Intermediate) seminars."


Dr. Jeff Ahlin

"From my experience over the last 50 years of practice, the American Orthodontic Society has provided the most up-to-date and cost-effective continuing orthodontic education anywhere on the planet. My interaction with the professional staff and professional educators in the AOS organization has allowed me to prosper and grow in our profession."
