This annual meeting is a great way to review techniques and discuss new trends and products.

What are the Learning Objectives?

The comprehensive, five session (100-hour) seminar series will focus on the principles of Straight Wire Non-Extraction Orthodontics, which is our philosophy.  The program is presented exactly as you would approach treating the patient, from diagnosis and treatment planning to case finishing mechanics.  Upon completion of the entire program, participants will have the knowledge and confidence to:
  • Produce Standard of Care Patient Documentation

Health History Review

Dental and Myofunctional Exams

Intra and Extra Oral Photography

Diagnostic Study Models (Digital or Impressions)



TMJ Screening

  • Confidently Select Cases for Treatment

Our goal is to provide you with criteria and guidance for your beginning cases. We want the cases you treat in the beginning to be straightforward and rewarding. We try to avoid cases that are more advanced and offer guidance with your case selection so you will have success and gain confidence.

  • Interpret Cases Using a Predictable Diagnostic System

Our predictable diagnostic system will help doctors avoid cases that have hidden difficulties that manifest during treatment and can discourage a beginning doctor.

  • Evaluate and Troubleshoot Case Progression

We set aside a day during each session to review your records for case selection and to review and troubleshoot the cases you have in treatment. Our instructors are available to look at your cases during the course and keep you on track with your progress.

  • Implement the Most Current Treatment Options

We continually add materials, appliances and mechanics to our program as they become available. It is our objective to start you with the mechanics that are most effective and predictable.

  • Deliver the Correct Mechanics in the Appropriate Sequence

As important as mechanics are to the orthodontic case, choosing the right mechanic is not as important as implementing the right mechanic in the proper sequence. We provide a roadmap for treatment sequencing.

  • Finish Cases to a Level of Excellence

There is an art to case finishing that begins at the start of the case. The amount of time spent fine tuning and case finishing mechanics at the end of the case can be much less when you have followed the road map from the beginning.

Gerety  Basic Orthodontic Training for Assistants    

Dallas, TX

We are very excited to announce that Dr Damon Huffman will be returning as our instructor for the assistant program!  Dr Huffman has been part of our teaching team for the doctor's Comprehensive Orthodontic Course in both Tulsa and Dallas since 2014 and has participated in the assistant training along with Kay during that time.  He is looking forward to seeing you in Dallas!  The curriculum will continue to be the program that Kay Gerety originated and fine-tuned to fit the needs of todays practice. 

The success of a dental practice, and the successful incorporation of orthodontics into a practice, can hinge on the education and training of its staff. This hands-on course is designed to meet the needs of doctors and assistants who are currently utilizing Straight-Wire mechanics and would like to expand the duties that may be delegated to, and performed by, the assistant. You can’t afford to miss out on the opportunity to train your staff to accept these responsibilities and to encourage their professional growth.

This is a beginning course specifically designed to teach the fundamentals of orthodontics to chair-side auxiliaries. No experience is necessary to succeed in this course and there are no orthodontic prerequisites. This is a two-day course featuring lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises. Dr Huffman will provide your staff with a clear understanding of orthodontics beginning with patient records, and building on each lesson to conclude with bracket and archwire placement.

Kay has listened to your requests and has introduced a clinical photography module to the basic program.  Our goal is to teach proper techniques and procedures for producing consistent high quality images for orthodontic documentation. While we will have cameras on hand to complete this exercise we do encourage each office that is represented to bring their camera in order for us to customize their procedures and settings.  Multiple stations are set-up in the classroom so that each assistant can produce a complete set of images that meet the standard of care guidelines. 

Course Outline

  • Patient records, standard of care, radiographs, impressions and models, photography, clinical exam and evaluation
  • Insurance procedures, patient management forms, informed consent, financial options
  • Orthodontic Photography - Hands On

  • Scheduling and practice management, ordering orthodontic supplies, operatory armamentarium, and set-up
