Virtual Course Orthodontic Study Group

F.O.R.C.E. is intent on providing an ongoing support system for graduates of our Comprehensive Orthodontics programs. The optional Study Groups are offered to provide continuity, support, and security, while participants develop experience and confidence in their ability to deliver orthodontic services.

Having completed Comprehensive Orthodontics, participants may choose to continue their studies in an Study Group setting. Study Groups meet on a periodic basis, and include viewing guest videotaped lectures and discussing preselected journal articles about orthodontics and case presentations. Case presentations will cover diagnosis, treatment planning, appliance selection, treatment monitoring, problem solving, patient management, and practice management (including fees for treatment).

Participants will provide records from their practices for review by the faculty and discussion among Study Group members.

The importance of diagnosis and treatment planning cannot be overemphasized in the practice of orthodontics. The main objective of these Study Groups is to continue the development of each participant's diagnostic and treatment planning skills. Each Study Group session also includes a didactic discussion and lecture presentation on advanced orthodontic subjects.

Facilitated by Timothy Shaughnessy, DDS, MS.
