Gerety Comprehensive Orthodontic Programs are committed to incorporating the most current and enhanced concepts to meet the challenges of treating today's patients. What sets our orthodontic program for the general dentist apart from all others? Our courses are the only true Gerety courses, taught now in Tulsa and Nashville using the techniques created and implemented successfully for over 35 years by Big Bob himself. Maintaining his high standards, today's Gerety team of Kay Gerety, Joseph Schmidbauer, Damon Huffman and Michael Auld continue to present Big Bob's curriculum with his guidance and support. Our instructors are innovative and diligent, adding new cases and mechanics, updating materials and products and promoting cutting edge techniques and technology in the classroom. We are dedicated to making our courses available to any dentist with a desire to learn orthodontics, whether in the classroom or 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. The third day of each session is completely devoted to case diagnosis, treatment planning, and problem solving of cases 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 Kay Gerety, Dr. Joe Schmidbauer, Dr. Damon Huffman, and Dr Michael Auld. Dr. Schmidbauer is an experienced general practitioner from Oregon, Ohio who has been carefully selected to work with Kay 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 7 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.
Kay Gerety assisted Dr. Bob Gerety in teaching their Straight-Wire Orthodontic courses for over 30 years and has been an immeasurable asset to the Comprehensive Orthodontic program. During this same time period, she has taught her own assistant’s clinical program in conjunction with Dr. Gerety’s courses. In addition to the clinical programs, she has lectured extensively on Orthodontic Integration and Profitability, Practice Management and Marketing, and Effective Staff Utilization. A highly enthusiastic presenter, Kay is motivating, as well as knowledgeable, enabling you and your staff to return to your practice with a renewed excitement and enthusiasm for dentistry.
We are excited to welcome Dr Damon Huffman and Dr Michael Auld to our team! Dr. Huffman graduated from the University of Texas Dental School at Houston in 1994. The following year he took Dr. Robert Gerety’s GP Comprehensive Orthodontic course. This allowed him to incorporate orthodontics into his busy family practice. In 20 years Dr. Huffman has completed over 700 orthodontic cases following Dr. Gerety’s Straight Wire techniques. He has been an active member of the American Orthodontic Society and the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Huffman received his Fellowship in the AOS in 2011, his Fellowship in the AGD in 2013, and his Diplomate from the AOS in 2015. In 2014 he was named Forum Master of the Gerety Orthodontic Seminars website and currently assists Kay Gerety and Dr. Joe Schmidbauer in the Robert G Gerety Comprehensive Orthodontic Program in Tulsa, OK. Dr Michael Auld graduated Magna Cum Laude from Oklahoma Baptist University in 2005, and is a 2009 graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry where he graduated with distinction. Michael joined his uncle's dental practice in McAlester, OK where he practices family dentistry. Michael took our Comprehensive Ortho course in Tulsa in 2011 and immediately began incorporating the Gerety Straight Wire techniques into his practice. Michael has returned to our class each year and has been an invaluable mentor to our first year students and we are welcoming to our team as an Associate Instructor!
