The Gerety Advanced Orthodontic Training for Assistants – Dallas
May 5 – May 6 EDT
We are very excited to announce that Dr Damon Huffman will be returning as our instructor for the assistant program! Dr Huffman has been part of our teaching team for the doctor’s Comprehensive Orthodontic Course in both Tulsa and Dallas since 2014 and has assisted Kay with the staff training during that time. He is looking forward to seeing you in Dallas! The curriculum will continue to be the program that Kay Gerety originated and fine-tuned to fit the needs of today’s practice. We recognize that the success of a dental practice, along with the successful incorporation of orthodontics into a dental practice can depend on the education and training of the staff; with that in mind we designed this course to help fulfill those needs. This 2 day course features lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises and is designed to meet the needs of the doctor and assistants who are currently utilizing Straight Wire mechanics and would like to expand the delegable duties to be performed by the orthodontic assistant. While this is not a beginning course, it is an excellent follow-up for assistants who have previously participated in the Basic Assistant course or who have extensive experience in orthodontic assisting.
Although it is not mandatory to have participated in the Gerety’s Basic Assistant Course, this advanced course is specifically structured to enhance and develop the principles and techniques taught in the basic course. Additionally, it will provide an excellent follow-up for assistants who have previously participated in the Basic Assistant Course or who have extensive experience in orthodontic assisting. It is recommended that participants be familiar with Cephalometric Values, ligation methods, and general monthly maintenance procedures. Each assistant needs to be comfortable with basic orthodontic treatment concepts.
This is a wonderful opportunity to provide your staff with additional orthodontic training and to encourage their professional growth.
