2017 Nashville Comprehensive Orthodontic Course

Course Cost: $4,995

Gain the skills you need to meet today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities. This course will show you innovative solutions that will make orthodontics fun, easy, rewarding, and profitable. The addition of orthodontics to your practice not only increases your profitability, but also adds a new and challenging dimension of service to your patients and practice. This course is ideally structured for the general or pediatric dentist with no orthodontic training other than dental school. Just as you have learned a technique for every other aspect of dentistry, Dr. Gerety’s method of teaching orthodontics will also provide you with a predictable technique. Each session builds on information, presented in the same sequence you will encounter in treatment delivery. When you have completed this course, you will have the knowledge, skill, and confidence to treat 80% of the malocclusions that come into your office.

This comprehensive, five-session (100-hour) seminar series will focus on the fundamentals of orthodontics and is designed exactly as you would treat a patient, from diagnosis and treatment planning to case finishing mechanics. Upon completion of the course participants will be able to:

Course Objectives
  • Select the appropriate cases to treat
  • Diagnose cases
  • Plan patient treatments
  • Treat patients using the Straight-Wire philosophy
  • Evaluate case progressions
  • Use the latest orthodontic treatment options
  • Finish cases effectively

The lecture will include both didactic and hands-on instruction with typodonts to facilitate your understanding of our curriculum. The third day of each session is completely devoted to case diagnosis, treatment planning, and problem solving of cases in treatment. Each participant will have the opportunity to present cases for help with initial diagnosis or cases that are in treatment. Not only will you receive advice on your individual cases, but because of the participation of the other doctors, both first-year and second-year attendees, you will see hundreds of cases presented and discussed. This exposure to many different treatment objectives and solutions is an invaluable part of the program.

You’re in Good Company!

Over 6,000 dentists have attended the Gerety seminars over the past 35 years—you probably know several of the attendees. Call us at (918) 606-2809 and ask for a Gerety student in your area. Feel free to ask questions, and speak with them candidly about their experience. The Geretys have taught much more than orthodontics, they have taught a lifelong commitment to dental excellence and it shows in their treatment results.
