The format of the video allows you to view the speaker in a portion of the screen with the main focus on their slide presentation. For crystal clarity the sound is directly from our sound board and the slide presentation is the feed from the computer, providing you the best digital quality of both the audio and visual. We are so excited to now have the capability to offer a Live Stream venue of our courses to our students! This allows us to provide access to a video of the entire course for all who missed the live event. Don't miss a minute from the weekend, the video includes all presentations from the weekend including the lectures of all 4 instructors, and the 3 Table Clinics. We had a wonderful weekend in Dallas and are honored to be able to have this to share for years to come!
This year we will focus on “SEEING” the cases you are treating with 20/20 Vision and understanding the mechanics that are needed to finish the case. The 2020 Annual Symposium is guaranteed to be a tremendous learning experience for all, whether you are a new Gerety student, an experienced GOS graduate, or a dental professional seeking to find out more about us. Our emphasis will be given to case finishing and our speakers will present Bob’s 7 Keys to Case Finishing Excellence using pure Gerety mechanics. The Annual Case of the Year Award will be presented to the attendee who presents the most outstanding case and we will be presenting our Lifetime Achievement Award for the first time. This course is structured for the doctor that is currently practicing the Straight-Wire technique, has a clear understanding of mechanics, and desires an update in terms of current trends and techniques in orthodontics.
While maintaining the Gerety philosophy and mechanics, we will explore and expose developments in appliances, materials, and products as they pertain to some of our more advanced or complicated cases. Definite advantages and disadvantages have been encountered over the years and we will present these mechanics and define our guidelines for determining when one appliance may be indicated or preferred over another. This course is structured for the doctor that is currently practicing the Straight-Wire technique, has a clear understanding of mechanics and desires an update in terms of current trends and techniques in orthodontics. Our emphasis will be given to case finishing.
Yes, they were so popular last year that we are bringing them back again this year! During each break one of our instructors will be presenting a table clinic that will be relevant to our focus on case finishing. They each have great ideas and we are excited to share them with you on the LIVE STREAM as well!
