The course will support and apply previous principles and philosophies taught in Introduction to Orthodontics and in the Preclinical Orthodontics Laboratory. Each student will be required to treat one case in interceptive or adjunctive orthodontics. These cases typically consist of minor anteroposterior problems, transverse problems and vertical problems in adult and child patients and are treated using fixed or removable appliances. Small-group seminars will enhance the clinic experience, will expose the students to the diagnosis and treatment of additional minor orthodontic tooth-movement procedures, and will help identify cases that should be referred to a specialist.
