Course Synopsis

This fall, members of the University of Washington School of Dentistry faculty will offer an intensive five-day lecture series on current clinical concepts in orthodontics. The enrollment is limited to maximize the learning environment, allowing the participants to interact closely with some of the leading orthodontic clinicians and researchers in the United States. In the past, speakers have included Anne-Marie Bollen, Geoff Greenlee, Roy Gunsolus, Greg Huang, Don Joondeph, Greg King, Paola Leone, Greg Vaughn, Doug Ramsay, Robert Little, Ward Smalley, David Turpin, and both Vince Kokich, Sr. and Jr. Topics will reflect the current clinical and research interests of the faculty, and will include topics such as 3D imaging, evidence-based orthodontics, ortho-perio issues, interdisciplinary treatment, open-bite, deep-bite, TADs, corticotomy, access to care and managing white spot lesions.

All attendees must have completed a formal orthodontic program of at least 2 years duration.
