This is a special year for us as we honor the 40th year of our Comprehensive Orthodontic Program. As we are recognizing the past, we are engaged in the present, offering a program that will provide current information and techniques. You will gain the skills you need to meet today’s challenges and to embrace tomorrow’s opportunities. What sets our orthodontic program for the general dentist apart from all others? Our courses in Tulsa and Nashville are the only true Gerety courses, presented the way Big Bob taught it for over 35 years. Our specially selected instructors are continuing to present Big Bob's curriculum with his guidance, support and involvement, maintaining the high standards that Big Bob has established. We are dedicated to making our courses available to everyone who has a desire to learn orthodontics, both in the classroom and online.
This course will show you innovative solutions that will make orthodontics fun, easy, rewarding, and profitable. The addition of orthodontics to your practice not only increases your profitability, but also adds a new and challenging dimension of service to your patients and practice. This course is ideally structured for the general or pediatric dentist with no orthodontic training other than dental school. Just as you have learned a technique for every other aspect of dentistry, Dr. Gerety’s method of teaching orthodontics will also provide you with a predictable technique. Each session builds on information, presented in the same sequence you will encounter in treatment delivery. When you have completed this course, you will have the knowledge, skill, and confidence to treat 80% of the malocclusions that come into your office.
This comprehensive, five-session (100-hour) seminar series will focus on the fundamentals of orthodontics and is designed exactly as you would treat a patient, from diagnosis and treatment planning, to case finishing mechanics. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
• Select the appropriate cases to treat
• Diagnose cases
• Plan patient treatments
• Treat patients using the Straight-Wire philosophy
• Evaluate case progressions
• Use the latest orthodontic treatment options
• Finish cases effectively
The lecture will include both didactic and hands-on instruction with typodonts to facilitate your understanding of our curriculum and treatment mechanics. The third day of each session is completely devoted to the participant's cases. We will offer case diagnosis and treatment planning for potential cases as well as problem solving for cases already in treatment. Each participant will have the opportunity to present cases for help with initial diagnosis or cases that are in treatment. Not only will you receive advice on your individual cases, but because of the participation of the other doctors, both first-year and second-year attendees, you will see hundreds of cases presented and discussed. This exposure to many different treatment objectives and solutions is an invaluable part of the program.
The course will be presented by Dr. Joe Schmidbauer and Dr. Jordan Balvich. Dr. Schmidbauer is an experienced general practitioner from Oregon, Ohio, who has been carefully selected to present the most popular GP comprehensive orthodontic course in America, taught for 35 years by Dr. Robert G. Gerety. After completing Dr. Gerety’s Comprehensive Orthodontic Education program in 1989, Dr. Schmidbauer incorporated orthodontics into his practice and has continued to build that practice component utilizing a nonextraction philosophy for 26 years, completing over 2,000 cases. For the last 6 years he has taught the philosophy and mechanics of Dr. Robert G. Gerety in the classroom with Kay Gerety in Tulsa, OK where the Geretys live.
Dr Jordan Balvich practices in Rensselaer, IN, and has been using the non-extraction orthodontic philosophy of Dr Robert Gerety for over 20 years. Dr Balvich is a general practitioner who has completed over 500 orthodontic cases. He has been teaching alongside Dr Joe Schmidbauer since 2009. Dr Balvich is a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry, he is a Diplomate in the Academy of the American Orthodontic Society where he also served as an examiner as well as President. He is a co-editor for the Journal of the American Orthodontic Society.
