Upcoming Course Highlight

Master Clinician Series: Class II Correction
November 11 & 12, 2022

Class II malocclusions present unique challenges for clinicans, given their high prevalence and wide variety in their clinical presentation. Therefore, success in Class II cases depends on the clinician's aptness to address vital diagnostic concerns. In addition, our profession has vastly moved on from its earliest days, which heavily focused on cephalometric norms and hard tissue relationships. With advancing technology and materials, orthodontists have a wide variety of options including but not limited to skeletal anchorage applications, aligners, and 3D printed custom appliances. 

In this innagural volume of the "Master Clinician" series, we aim to discuss the current treatment options for Class II correction from the lens of two master clinicians. Our speakers will present their non-biased opinions and clinical experience to the audience. Clinical pearls will be given to the audience while contrasting conventional and contemporary approaches for Class II correction. The presenters will answer the questions from the audience using an interactive platform and elaborate on the clinical management of Class II patients.
