Below you’ll find highlights on what to expect during your mini-residency in orthodontics.
ORTHODONTIC MINI RESIDENCY
Frequency: 12 SESSIONS (ONCE EVERY 2 MONTHS)
Enrollment: Limited to 5 doctors and 5 staff (Apply today)
At each session the doctor is permitted to bring one staff member. It is recommended that for at least the first session the doctor brings his dental assistant. After the 3rd session we recommend that a dental hygienist attend for 3 sessions to learn how to educate parents and patients about orthodontics and functional appliances. The hygienist can be a valuable asset in helping treat orthodontic patients. For the last 6 sessions the doctor can decide on who he wants to train to help incorporate orthodontics into the practice.
During a Thursday night presentation with a dinner at the hotel, orthodontic cases will be presented by the course participants along with complete records of the patients. The Rondeau Seminars team will help all course participants put their cases in powerpoint so they can easily present them to the entire group. Our doctors will give feedback and input regarding the ideal treatment plans. Once a consensus has been reached from the entire group the doctor will write up the diagnosis and treatment plan, which will be presented to the patient the next day at the final consult appointment.
DOCTORS WILL FOLLOW ALL PATIENTS ON A BIMONTHLY BASIS FOR 24 MONTHS.
Is to have the doctors and the dental assistants and hygienists treat the same patients every 2 months for 24 months including initial consult appointment, complete records, final consult and informed consent, functional appliances and straight wire orthodontics.
Staff Training & Schedule
One of the main keys to successfully integrating orthodontics into a general practice is to have the staff thoroughly trained on how to educate and motivate patients to accept and want orthodontic treatment, particularly for the children in mixed dentition. The staff can be extremely helpful by learning how to take all the orthodontic records, including assisting with charting, impressions for study models, pouring up the impressions, taking the x-rays including cephalometrics x-rays and panorex, completing the TMJ Health Questionnaire, digital photography including 3 extra-oral, 6 intra orals. Experienced orthodontic assistants will work closely with each staff member to properly train them to be competent in all areas of orthodontic records. Utilizing your staff members in the records process drives efficiency and significant profitability gains for the practice.
Staff training will also cover:
Phase 1 patients (age 5-11) Functional Appliances
Phase 2 Orthodontic Patients
NEW PATIENT CONSULT APPOINTMENT
Free Case Diagnosis on All New and Progress Cases
Your Rondeau Seminars doctor will assist you with the diagnosis of all your cases from your office during the 12 sessions of the course at no charge.
