Course Description:

There exists a golden opportunity for meaningful orthodontic and orthopedic change – the mixed dentition. Six to 10-year-olds are malleable, cooperative, and fun to work with. In this engaging lecture, orthodontist and clinical expert Dr. Bruce McFarlane will explore the “when, why, and how” of early orthodontic treatment. Attendees will walk away feeling confident in identifying and addressing orthodontic issues in the mixed dentition – with a view to a much brighter future for their child patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover how changes in the A-P, transverse, and vertical dimensions at this stage of life have been shown to have many benefits; with improvements that can actually be life-altering.
  • Learn simple and short-in-duration approaches that can head off many issues that will be much more difficult to deal with if waited on.
