Advanced Treatment Mechanics and Case Finishing Annual Symposium

Soaring to New Heights and to Orthodontic Excellence

We are excited to get wheels-up and invite you to fly with us as we present this year’s Advanced Treatment Mechanics Symposium.  Our pilots and crew will explore new developments in appliances, alternative methods, materials and products while maintaining the Gerety core philosophy, technique and mechanics.  Just as a pilot follows a strict procedure checklist, we will present our proven techniques to help you achieve new heights and soar to case finishing excellence.  We begin with the pilot’s preflight briefing, flight plan and preflight checklist which will be our records, diagnosis and treatment plan.  Cleared for takeoff we will climb to cruise altitude using our treatment objectives, treatment options, archwire sequence and our time tested treatment mechanics.  In case of turbulence, we will offer vectors to avoid the storm and in case of an alarming event, we will refer to our emergency checklist.  This will allow us to gain control and prepare us for final approach and a smooth landing.

About the Course

In order to fine tune and precisely detail orthodontic cases we must be willing to spend a little extra time, closely examine minute details, and thoroughly understand the system of case finishing mechanics: 6 Keys to Optimal Occlusion.  This 2 day program will focus on mechanics from beginning to finishing procedures, as well as using the proper tools to best resolve the issues in the most effective manner. 

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.


Our Learning Objectives:

  • Big Bob's 7 Keys to Case Finishing Excellence
  • Earlier Early Treatment
  • Intercepting the Cause in Order to Prevent Many Malocclusions
  • Understanding More About Function and Form
  • Impact of AIrway and Dental Sleep Medicine on your patient's health and lives


Need Hands-On Instructions?

Do you have a particular task or procedure that you would like to see demonstrated?  Bring your questions to our demonstration clinic immediately following class on Friday. Meet with the six instructors for a clinical session presenting any specific mechanic or procedure that you would like to see completed.  This is also an excellent opportunity to bring any cases on which you would like some help or guidance with.


Table Clinics 

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 to a small group that will be relevant to our focus on case finishing.  They each have great ideas and we are excited to share them with you!


Robert Gerety Case of the Year Award 

We have asked each of our instructors to bring an exemplary case from their own practices to present at the meeting. We also invite each of our participants to bring a "best case" to present.  Each student case presented will be evaluated by our judges, and one winner will be awarded the Robert Gerety Case of the Year.  The winner will be presented with an engraved award as well as a lifetime membership to our website and 10 cases of brackets.  What a great promotion it will be for you to show off this beautiful award in your office!

Please choose your case carefully and bring to class with you the following required hard copy records:

  • Before and after of:  panorex, ceph with tracing, models, and pictures
  • Patient history/ID/information

We are looking forward to you sharing your success story with us!
