IAS Academy explains how its training can help you progress with orthodontic appliances.
When training with the IAS Academy, there is a progressive pathway with the appliances, meaning GDPs are required to gain the appropriate skills with certain appliances before they can advance to the next step. It begins with the Inman Aligner and Clearsmile Aligner Light, both of which are taught on the IAS ABB (align, bleach and bond) two-day hands-on course along with the Ortho Restorative programme. Upcoming courses, include: 18-19/01/2019 in London; 22-23/03/2019 in Manchester; 24-25/05/2019 in London; 21-22/06/2019 in Dublin; 04-05/10/2019 in London; 08-09/11/2019 in Edinburgh; and 06-07/12/2019 in London.
The cost for this course is £950.00 + VAT (£1,140.00), and is available to all GDPs, including those with little or no orthodontic experience. The next step is the Clearsmile Aligner course, which offers a more comprehensive insight into removable orthodontics for GDPs with a basic knowledge of minimally invasive anterior alignment appliances. The programme takes place over one day at a cost of £595.00 + VAT (£714.00), with the following course dates available for 2019: 01/02/2019 in London; 26/04/2019 in Birmingham; 07/06/2019 in London; 12/07/2019 in Manchester; and lastly, 22/11/2019 in London.
