The Agnini Orthodontic Series provides General and Pediatric Dentists with both the orthodontic skills to enhance the quality of care they provide, and the tools to leverage those skills to grow their practice. This course series is specifically designed for the doctor who may have aligner experience but would like to get started with fixed appliances as an alternative.. It is also a good review of the basic fundamentals for those with minimal experience with fixed appliances. Performing orthodontic treatment since 1984, Dr. Agnini will explore the unique journey and take-away of a general dentist who spent decades discovering what he will share with you in these condensed and enlightening courses. From identifying opportunities for treatment, to gaining comfort with cases that would have been referrals in the past, each of the three sessions offers specific instructions on the when, why and how to become a more thorough and successful practitioner through simplified orthodontic diagnostics, treatment planning and case management.
