Course Description

This is a comprehensive orthodontic course which is Centric Relation Centered - just like Dr. Roth practiced.

What you will learn:

  • Light Force Orthodontics (Differential Straight Arch Technique)
  • Centric Relation Dentistry (as it applies to Orthodontics and General Practice)
  • Begin and finish a comprehensive orthodontic case


Disciplines covered: 

  • Interceptive Orthodontics
  • Mixed Dentition Analysis and Treatment
  • Adult Comprehensive Orthodontics
  • Orthodontics in Conjunction with Complex Restorative Cases
  • Lingual Arches
  • Rapid Palatal Expansion
  • Diagnosis and treatment planning

If your interests lie in Orthodontics you will be extensively trained, and at the end of the two year course you should be well prepared to pass the  Tier Advancement for either IAO, or Light Force America. The Tip-Edge Plus® and CORALEX® brackets are both Tip-Edge brackets. These brackets are advanced edgewise brackets capable of using the best of light force and straight wire mechanics. During the course the differences will be taught and you can make the decision on which to use and when. Also Tip-Edge brackets are, in reality, Advanced Modified Edgewise brackets with a Roth Prescription.

 If you are just looking for an update you can enter the Advanced Course.

If you would like to obtain training on Centric Relation Occlusion and bring the concepts back to your office, or occlusal adjustment, mounting with Facebow, Lucia Jigs, anterior deprogrammers, occlusal guards, or other aspects of occlusion related dentistry - register for the Occlusion Course. 



If your staff needs initial training in Orthodontic Assisting, or Orthodontic Records, or initial development of the patient data, or just needs a review: that training will be available upon request.

There are several Doctors in attendance who come as study club and have their cases reviewed. Everyone discusses the cases and exchanges ideas for treatment. You can select any number of the 6 offered each year.
