We practice a non-extraction approach with a fixed technique, utilizing Straight Wire mechanics. For over 40 years we have had tremendous success with Straight Wire mechanics, a slot size of .022 and a modified Roth prescription.
Yes, it is! The online course is the complete comprehensive course that we present in the classroom. It is the same PowerPoint presentation that we use in Tulsa and the same techniques and mechanics we have taught for over 35 years. The recorded audio lecture is scripted to the presentation given by Big Bob and Kay. The online version offer s the same project videos to be viewed as often as you wish, the same opportunity to complete the hands-on exercises, the same one-on-one time with the instructors and the same guidance on your patient’s cases.
Each of the online sessions is divided into short 15 minute segments or chapters so you don't have to commit to several hours in one sitting. After you have completed the lecture the next step is a short quiz that is relative to that chapter. The clinical portion of the program is 15 separate projects or exercises that cover a particular mechanic or technique that is to be completed on a typodont. Each of the projects has a coinciding lecture and a video demonstrating how to complete the project. As you complete each of the projects, simply photograph each completed step as you work through the exercise. Once you have completed the entire project, simply upload the images to the website for evaluation and critique from our instructors. By completing all of the steps above, you will earn 25 CE credits for each of the four sessions. We are approved by the AGD to offer CE credits for our online course. A verification of participation is available for download upon completion of each session.
Our online courses are designed for you to take at your pace, and to review as often as you like. There is no expiration date on the courses, and they are just a click away where ever you are. A one year Premium membership is included with the purchase of the Comprehensive course.

We will ship you the course manual and the materials needed to complete the projects, such as the brackets, bands, ligatures, archwires and appliances.

We also provide you the option to borrow the necessary instruments from us at no charge other than the shipping, eliminating the expensive of purchasing instruments before you have decided to integrate orthodontics into your practice.

As you proceed through the course you are not alone, we are very accessible to answer questions either by customer service email or by phone. We want to help you have a rewarding experience and can help with whatever your needs may be. If you need guidance with your personal cases, we include the option of uploading two of your cases to the My Case section of the website. This can be for diagnosis, troubleshooting or case finishing.
