Find out why the IAS Academy 2018 World Symposium will be the perfect opportunity to take your orthodontic skills to new heights.

The latest study released by the British Orthodontic Society (BOS) on bos.org.uk (2018) for National Smile Month this year revealed an increase in the amount of adult orthodontics provided throughout the UK compared to 2016. While fixed appliances were among the most highly recommended option, use of clear aligners was shown to be on the rise as well.

In order to meet patient demand for treatment, there are various orthodontic devices and training courses available to GDPs that enable them to complete cases in a safe and effective way.

This is the foundation on which IAS Academy is built. The range of training courses provides different entry levels to suit every GDP’s existing orthodontic experience, giving delegates all the knowledge and practical skills they need.

On-going support

But IAS Academy doesn’t stop there – it also provides on-going support for all delegates. Professionals can post their cases to the online forum to seek advice from mentors and peers to help guide their cases to success. Here, they can discuss challenging aspects of treatment or ask questions as a case progresses, giving them complete confidence in the safety and effectiveness of treatment being delivered.

Further still, the IAS Academy 2018 World Symposium will provide the perfect opportunity to solidify your existing knowledge in the field and take your skills to new heights. The two-day event will enable you to broaden both your theoretical understanding and your practical skills for a truly comprehensive learning experience.

Twelve short lectures and six hands-on workshops will be presented across the two days by an array of speakers renowned worldwide for their expertise in GDP and specialist orthodontics, including:

  • Dr Hatem Algraffee
  • Dr Pinkoo Bose
  • Dr Asif Chatoo (specialist orthodontist)
  • Dr Darren Cromey
  • Dr Rikke Freitag
  • Professor Ross Hobson (specialist orthodontist)
  • Professor Kevin O’Brien (specialist orthodontist)
  • Dr Tif Qureshi
  • Dr Robby Sehmi
  • Dr Prav Solanki
  • Dr Erik Svendsrud
  • Dr Andy Wallace.

They will cover a wide spectrum of topics ranging from how to choose the best training course for career progression, to minimising risk in orthodontics, the evidence behind anterior alignment orthodontics and the importance of assessing biotypes. They will also present cases to demonstrate the full potential of the Clearsmile Inman Aligner, Clearsmile Aligner, Clearsmile Brace and Clearsmile Discreet Brace, with a wealth of helpful hints and tips to help you improve your own skills with each appliance. The workshops will present the opportunity to get hands on with the appliances yourself, offering initial certification or pearls of wisdom for approaching more advanced cases.

Adding to the experience, the IAS Academy 2018 World Symposium will also include dinner, drinks and a boat trip, as well as the IAS Academy Awards – which recognise the outstanding results recently achieved by professionals involved with the academy.
