  • promote an understanding of the current literature 
  • promote an understanding of the force systems available 
  • promote an understanding of laboratory communication 
  • promote an understanding of the medico-legal implications and responsibilities associated with treatment

Objectives to:

  • understand the fundamental principles of occlusion 
  • understand the fundamental principles of the occlusion you are aiming for post Orthodontic treatment. 
  • materials
  • laboratory communication
  • understand medico-legal requirements and responsibilities 
  • provide group interactive learning in a structured manner
