ORTHO 5214 - SURGICAL ORTHODONTICS

[1 Credit]
The purpose of this course is to relate the specialties of Orthodontics and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in regard to the combined therapy required for treating dentofacial deformities. The emphasis will be on diagnosis and treatment planning from a team approach. The rationale for this course is based upon the need for the proper diagnosis of dentofacial deformities, the need for both dental specialties (Orthodontics and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery) to be aware of what each can do to correct these deformities, and the need for coordination of treatment planning for the proper execution of therapy.
