We recognize that the success of a dental practice, along with the successful incorporation of orthodontics into a dental practice can depend on the education and training of the staff; with that in mind we designed this course to help fulfill those needs. Kay is a highly enthusiastic presenter, motivating, as well as knowledgeable, and enables her students to return to your practice with a renewed excitement and enthusiasm for dentistry and their ability to contribute to your office. This 2 day course features lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises and is designed to meet the needs of the doctor and assistants who are currently utilizing Straight Wire mechanics and would like to expand the delegable duties to be performed by the orthodontic assistant. While this is not a beginning course, it is an excellent follow-up for assistants who have previously participated in the Basic Assistant course or who have extensive experience in orthodontic assisting.

Although it is not mandatory to have participated in "Kay Gerety's Basic Assistant Course," this advanced course is specifically structured to enhance and develop the principles and techniques taught in the basic course. Additionally, it will provide an excellent follow-up for assistants who have previously participated in the Basic Assistant Course or who have extensive experience in orthodontic assisting. It is recommended that participants be familiar with Cephalometric tracing, ligation methods, and general monthly maintenance procedures. Each assistant needs to be comfortable with basic orthodontic treatment concepts. This is a wonderful opportunity to provide your staff with additional orthodontic training and to encourage their professional growth.

Annual Advanced Treatment Mechanics Symposium    

Soaring to New Heights and to Orthodontic Excellence
Dallas, TX

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

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.

 

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!  Our winner last year was Dr David Parcells from Dayton, OH make sure to see his case in the Student Success Stories area of our website.

Robert G. Gerety Comprehensive Orthodontic Education Program    

Dallas, TX

Gerety Comprehensive Orthodontic Programs are committed to incorporating the most current and enhanced orthodontic concepts as we teach the General Dentist to master orthodontics and to successfully integrate it into their general practice.  Our course is taught in Dallas, TX utilizing the same core principles and techniques created, perfected and documented for over 35 years by Big Bob himself.  Maintaining the same high standards, today’s Gerety team lead by Kay Gerety,  continue to present Big Bob’s curriculum while adding their innovations, new cases and mechanics, updating materials and products promoting cutting edge techniques and technology in the classroom.  For more than 40 years, Gerety Orthodontic Seminars has paved the way, providing general and pediatric dentists a comprehensive orthodontic program teaching predictable and proven mechanics for treating patients through a non-extraction method. We have continued to build on those fundamentals, incorporating earlier, early treatment protocol to diagnose and treat airway issues, realizing that nasal breathing, appropriate tongue posture, and relaxed facial musculature during rest and function is critical for letting our patients reach their maximum genetic potential.  Our student- teacher ratio and continued support is unparalleled to any other program. Our team of instructors provides each student with dedicated individual support in and out of the classroom, proving our commitment to your success!

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. Each and every procedure is supported with a detailed slide sequence, patient cases demonstrating the technique, a video demonstration of each of the 15 clinical projects, and a new hands-on photography module added so each student can produce a complete set of images that meet the standard of care guidelines. Participants will receive individual assistance in completing the hands-on projects during each session.

The dates for each of the sessions are:

September 24-26, 2021
November 12-14, 2021
January 21-23, 2022
