Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, participants will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Provide orthodontists with an understanding, overview, and critical analysis of the most current and clinically useful information available in the literature related to orthodontics.
  • Read reviews of the latest basic scientific findings and the impact of these on clinical problems, as well as concise, targeted lectures by noted specialists on the most important practice-oriented subjects in these areas.
  • Evaluate where controversy exists and, with our distinguished editorial board of orthodontists, examine the evidence and present advantages and disadvantages of the method in question. Also, controversies, advantages, and disadvantages of diagnosis and treatment plans will be emphasized.
  • Find useful guidance on integrating non-conventional principles and practices with conventional ones — and learn how to select and use the best of all available approaches.
  • Expand upon, reinforce, and give additional perspective to the participant’s own regular journal review.
  • After completing each issue’s activity, the participant is expected to have a working familiarity with the most clinically important information gleaned from the articles reviewed.

Completed continuing education hours help meet the CDE requirements for many state dental boards, state and local associations, and hospitals and clinics. Since criteria vary, participants are advised to check directly with the apropriate board or organization for applicability.
