“If you can fill a tooth, you can straighten teeth, and I can teach you how!” – Dr. Brad Williams
The godfather of orthodontics, William R. Proffit, Univ. of NC W.R. Kenan Distinguished Professor recipient and orthodontic professor emeritus, authored the textbook, Contemporary Orthodontics, considered by many to be the definitive text for pre- and post-doctoral orthodontic students, wrote in this book the following statement:
“In orthodontics as in all areas of dentistry, it makes sense that the less complex cases would be selected for treatment in general or family practice, while the more complex cases would be referred to a specialist.” — William R. Proffit, DDS, MS
So, in light of this statement, just when and where are you, the GP or Pediatric dentist going to get the diagnostic knowledge to decide which patients you will treat and which patients you will refer? And where are you GP’s & Pedo’s going to get the skills to treat the patients that should be receiving the “less complex” orthodontic services Dr. Proffit is referencing in this textbook?
Do you realize that just three to five orthodontic case starts per month could increase the bottom line in your practice by $150,000 to $300,000 per year? Even more important, adding orthodontics to your dental practice allows you to satisfy prospective and existing patients’ needs and makes your practice more competitive.

Dr. Brad Williams brings a level of general practice clinical experience to the classroom that resonates with any practicing general and pediatric dentist. His casual and approachable teaching style makes orthodontics easy to understand and implement into your practice.

What our students are saying about Williams GP Orthodontic Seminars
Dr. Williams is an exceptional teacher. His goal is to ensure that you learn “how to do” basic orthodontics and his practical exercises on the typodont give you these needed skills to get started. His course manual is excellent, and you could learn basic orthodontics just studying his manual!

Thanks so much for offering your orthodontic courses to us general practitioners. I’ve always known I wanted to practice orthodontics. Being able to do so along with general dentistry is so advantageous in many ways and is also very personally fulfilling. Your Introduction to Basic Orthodontic course was such a great place to start the orthodontic practice journey. The Intermediate course has helped with understanding and implementation of advanced techniques to further broaden our capabilities and confidence. I fee inspired and motivated to take on more complex orthodontic cases at my practice. Thanks again, Dr. Williams and the AOS for putting together these excellent courses.

Since deciding to incorporate orthodontics in my office fifteen years ago, I have taken many (hundreds) of hours of orthodontic training. Dr. Williams’ course is hands down the most well-rounded. He covers all the points needed to be successful as a GP provider. I am looking forward to his next set of courses.
