Intermediate Comprehensive Straight Wire Orthodontics

In the Basic course, Dr. Williams teaches the students how to treat 70 to 80% of orthodontic cases. In this Intermediate course, the student will be taught strategies for the remaining cases in their practice.

Course Description:

The Intermediate course is designed for the orthodontic practitioner who has just completed the basic course, and/or for the doctor who would like an update in the latest orthodontic concepts and who wishes to further their orthodontic skills and education. Some of the things you will learn are how to bend and torque archwires, how to close spaces, when to distalize, reposition, or extract, and how to treat Class III patients.

The Intermediate course is a 4-session course. Each session consists of two days of hands-on and clinical lectures and a half-day devoted to reviewing the student’s current difficult cases and/or any new orthodontic cases being considered for treatment.

Hands-on Exercises in Session 4—Laser, Electrosurgery and TADS will be conducted in Dr. Williams’ local clinic. ​Dr. Williams is dedicated to supporting his students and is always available to answer concerns by phone and email.

“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.”
