Upcoming Course Dates
March 13-14, 2010
June 4-5, 2010
October 29-30, 2010
Course Objective
This two day course is designed to expose the clinicians to the advanced surgical and orthodontic aspects of the Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics™ (AOO) technique and to the unique manner in which these must be coordinated to maximize the potential of this technique. Upon completion the clinician should be able to utilize the new diagnostic parameters needed to treatment plan the various orthodontic classifications and properly design the surgical aspects needed to support the orthodontic objectives. Attendees receive 16 CE credits (AGD).
Testimonials From Former Course Attendees:
“As a Periodontist, I work with a number of Orthodontic colleagues who utilize AOO™ as a vital treatment option for their patients. AOO™ not only accelerates the movement of teeth but the bone regenerated allows for better and more stable orthodontic results. After performing the surgery for AOO™ on hundreds of patients, I can vouch for the safety and efficacy of this procedure.”
? Dr. Charles A. White, Periodontist, Bentonville, Arkansas

?Probably the best course I have attended in years! The AOO™ approach has significantly impacted the way I address recession and GBR procedures. It has consolidated the way our interdisciplinary team addresses complex and comprehensive treatment planning. The orthodontist will see cases more biologically, and the periodontist will appreciate the mechanical aspects of orthodontic treatment. My advice, round up your favorite orthodontists and ?just do it? (the course)! You will never look back!?
? Colin Richman, Periodontist; Roswell, Georgia
