Have you ever found it difficult to decide which training courses to attend? How do you select the best one for you? How do you know that it will be of a high quality?

If you haven’t yet discovered the benefits of training programmes from IAS Academy, you could be missing out. These courses were almost completely sold out in 2018 – a sure sign that they are worth a look for anyone interested in restoratively focused anterior alignment orthodontics!

The IAS Academy way

All training offered through IAS Academy is centred on ensuring the safe and effective delivery of patient care. It teaches about correct case selection, thorough orthodontic assessment, comprehensive diagnosis and appropriate ortho-restorative treatment planning. All training is organised and provided by clinicians who are highly skilled in the relevant fields of orthodontics and restorative dentistry, including specialists and extremely experienced GDPs.

Training is available for all the IAS appliances, offering a combination of initial certification, advanced, refresher and conversion courses. Programmes cover the Inman Aligner, Clearsmile Aligner and Clearsmile Brace, as well as the ABB (align, bleach and bond) concept, dental photography and the orthodontic-restorative overlap. There is always an appropriate entry level for clinicians with any amount of experience in orthodontics, enabling all GDPs to develop their skills and expand their treatment offerings. In addition, IAS Academy provides a guided learning pathway for GDPs to follow in order to progress their orthodontic and restorative capabilities in a safe and effective way.

Ongoing support

But that’s not all IAS Academy offers. Its ethos is very much about ensuring access to on-going expert support so that clinicians can deliver treatment in their practices with complete confidence that they are always operating in the best interests of their patients. Via the online forum, practitioners can post cases, seek bespoke advice and learn from peers, ensuring excellent standards of treatment and constantly improving their own competency.

Also about the Inman Aligner course, Dr Clare Davison, Fresh Dental Practice, commented: ‘I attended the course as I was looking to offer a minimally invasive approach to restoring both function and aesthetics. I was initially unsure if the appliance could be effective in many cases but the training proved otherwise. Dr Tif Qureshi was an excellent lecturer and it was good to hear a GDP talking about both orthodontics and restorative dentistry together. I would definitely recommend the course – it was very ethical and the best I have taken so far in this field.’

Dr Jon Henley, Darlington Restorative Dentistry Referrals, said about the Clearsmile Aligner course: ‘On every level the course was first-class. From the content and the style and delivery of the trainer, to the support that was provided, the training ticked all the boxes for me. I wanted to refresh and improve my skills in this area, and that’s exactly what I feel like I’ve done. For all of these reasons, I would definitely recommend to other general dental practitioners interested in offering clear aligner treatment.’

Thousands of dentists can’t be wrong – there is a reason why the IAS Academy courses were sold out in 2018! Discover the benefits of comprehensive anterior alignment orthodontic training and support for yourself in 2019.
