The Comprehensive Orthodontic Course is a 5 session orthodontic hands on training which teaches the philosophy, diagnosis and treatment planning, and orthodontic treatment mechanics which Dr. Schmidbauer employs on a daily basis in his own Oregon, Ohio family and general dental practice. He has developed and updated his orthodontic practice for over 30 years. As a follower of Dr. Robert Gerety’s non-extraction philosophy and Straight Wire treatment, Dr. Schmidbauer has practiced non-extraction techniques since 1989. Following Dr. Gerety’s retirement in 2009, Dr. Schmidbauer patterned his 5 session course to present all of the up-to-date techniques and mechanics to general and pediatric dentists interested in providing orthodontic care to their patients. Our goal is to share all the pieces, which make our orthodontic care superior.
The Comprehensive Orthodontic Course offers today’s general and pediatric dentist the most complete, efficient, profitable orthodontic treatment model. This model is the easiest way to incorporate an organized orthodontic treatment into general or pediatric dental practice. We offer all the orthodontic education necessary at an affordable cost.
Combined with the Basic and Advanced Assistant Courses, the entire staff’s education is co-ordinate, making the addition of fixed orthodontic care, a seamless integration. The result is a practice focused on total patient care.
Two courses are offered throughout the calendar year, one in Nashville, TN and the other in Tulsa, OK (presented in conjunction with Gerety Orthodontic Seminars).
Both courses offer a full 100 hours of hands-on continuing education credit over 5 weekends. Additionally, participants are allowed to repeat this course the following year as a monitor at no charge. This additional year gives you 12.5 more days of instruction and also gives you sufficient time to start and finish cases under direct supervision.
