Gerety Orthodontic Seminars is dedicated to providing the highest quality orthodontic education to general and pediatric dentists, which includes the successful integration of orthodontics into your practice. There are many ways we can help you to obtain your goals of expanding the services that you offer to your patients. Gerety Orthodontic Seminars offers a diverse range of courses both online and in the classroom, we provide online diagnostic help in between classroom sessions and our continued support to each and every student after graduation is unparalleled. Our mission is to help you be successful in orthodontics and enjoy the process!
We offer a complete program of orthodontic education that is structured for the general dentist who has no orthodontic experience other than what was presented in dental school. Our curriculum was developed and taught by Dr Robert Gerety for over 40 years and has been the only true Gerety program taught with his guidance and support. There are 3 types of courses that we feel are vital to not only your initial learning but to your continued successes. The first type of course is providing the dentist with a thorough and complete orthodontic education, which is our Comprehensive Orthodontic Education Program, a series of five sessions. The second type are courses that are dedicated to teaching your dental assistants how to help you accomplish your goals, which is our Assistant Training Program. The last type is our Annual Symposium which is focused on advanced mechanics with an emphasis on case finishing. This annual meeting is a great way to review techniques and discuss new trends and products.
Regardless of your orthodontic education goals we have the solutions for you and your office team, and we have the flexibility to offer instruction in the classroom and online!

We have a special weekend planned with lots of new case finishing secrets to share with you. Each year, when planning the Annual Update Symposium, our focus is always Case Finishing. Our goal is to bring you information, products, material, and appliances that are current and relevant to case finishing. This year we will be presenting cases from each instructor with a focus on perfecting orthodontic mechanics. The slight nuances of a procedure can sometimes change the outcome of the entire case and we want you to understand and learn the precise details of the mechanics.
To fine tune and precisely detail orthodontic cases we must be willing to spend a little extra time, closely examine many minute details, and thoroughly understand the system of case finishing mechanics. We must discipline ourselves to have a vision of the 6 Keys to Optimal Occlusion and the components of a beautiful smile. Each of our instructors will detail their vision for case finishing and share their cases with the participants. This 2-day program will focus on basic and advanced mechanics, from beginning to finishing procedures, as well as using the proper tools, in the right sequence, to best resolve the issues most effectively.
While maintaining our core 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 utilizing the Straight Wire appliance, has a clear understanding of mechanics and desires an update in terms of current trends and techniques in orthodontics.
Go diving for pearls with our instructors as they share their tips in small groups. Do you have a particular task or procedure that you would like to see demonstrated? Bring your questions to the meeting and we will have demonstration clinics immediately following class on Friday and during the breaks. Meet with the four instructors in small groups as they share their pearls with you. This is an excellent opportunity to bring your cases that you would like some help or guidance with.
Yes, they were so popular last year that we are bringing them back again this year! During each break one of our instructors will be presenting a table clinic to a small group that will be relevant to our focus on case finishing. They each have great ideas and we are excited to share them with you!
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!
Please choose your case carefully and bring to class with you the following required hard copy records:
We are looking forward to you sharing your success story with us!
Our course will be held in Dallas, TX at the Marriott Quorum Addison on August 19-20, 2022 from 9:00am - 5:00pm
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 23-25, 2022
November 11-13, 2022
January 20-22, 2023
March 10-12, 2023
