Enhance your practice with orthodontics care for your patients.
General and pediatric dentists are fortunate to provide comprehensive dental care for their patients, but they are often missing a key component of treatment. In dental school or residency programs, dentists are not well trained to provide orthodontic care for their patients, therefore, they are left to refer patients out, leaving them with less production and poorer diagnostic skills. If you are motivated and looking for ways to provide high quality care for your patients, offering orthodontics can change your practice model and culture. Consider taking a Straight Wire Orthodontics course this season with the American Orthodontic Society.
There are numerous benefits to implementing orthodontics into your practice, including the obvious lucrative production. Did you know that adding just two orthodontic cases per month can add an additional $10,000 of revenue to your practice? What dentist would want to turn that down? Offering orthodontics for patients is also an opportunity to keep patient care under a single roof without the worry of finding a new provider or handling difficult insurance issues. Other major benefits of adding straight wire orthodontics to a general or pediatric dental practice include:
- Improved patient satisfaction.
- Provision of an easy passive income.
- Gaining continuing education credits.
- Creating a multi-speciality practice.
- Adding a great marketing tool for new patients.
- Experiencing less physical stress.
The AOS offers convenient and wonderful opportunities for dentists seeking orthodontic courses. Dr. Brad Williams has decades of experience as a dentist who practices and teaches orthodontics to others looking to implement orthodontics into their practice. Whether you are looking for an in-person continuing education course or a virtual track, they both have great benefits for your education and clinical skills.
In-person Continuing Education Course
Dr. Williams offers The Basic Comprehensive Straight Wire Orthodontic course as both an in-person and online course. An in-person course is valuable because it provides both didactic and clinical education so that you can tie together current orthodontics practices. It is also a chance to network with other dental professionals who share the same passion for applying orthodontics to their practices as you do.
For the in-person course, you will be trained in all areas needed to incorporate orthodontics into your general or pediatric practice in five sessions throughout the year. This course includes:
- Diagnosing and treatment planning of Class I and Class II malocclusions.
- Understanding diagnostic orthodontic records, including cephalometrics.
- Learning to band and bracket teeth.
- Applying the straight wire orthodontic bracket system.
- Practically applying your coursework into your practice.
If you are in the Dallas region, consider signing up for Dr. William’s course while also enjoying the beautiful landscape and city. You will be part of a large network of dentists who are investing in their practices and patient care.
Let’s face it: everyone is looking for ways to save time and money, but at the same time want to stay busy and productive. How can you do both? The virtual track offers you the opportunity to take The Basic Straight Wire Course without the hassle of travel and missing work or family.
At the convenience of your home or office, you can access dynamic virtual livestream videos from experienced orthodontic instructors. All hands-on material and exercises are reviewed so that you will feel confident to diagnose, create a treatment plan, execute that plan, and complete Class I and Class II malocclusion cases.
