Safeguard your future in dentistry with the online Diploma in Digital Orthodontics
As dental technology rapidly evolves, the worlds of dentistry and orthodontics are becoming ever closer. The world’s first accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Orthodontics will equip you to stay at the forefront of modern dentistry – and is now available online.
The professions of dentistry and orthodontics are evolving, with ever more dentists dipping their toes in the water of orthodontics. The main focus of this shift is clear aligners, which are destined to make fixed braces obsolete in the coming years.
But how many of us have the confidence and competence to treat patients in the way that both they – and we – expect and deserve?
Simply following a standard treatment plan issued by the manufacturer of the aligner product you use is unlikely to result in satisfactory outcomes. To deliver expertise in your orthodontic procedures, you need knowledge, training and practice. Only then will you have the ability to plan treatments using advanced software, accurately predict outcomes and monitor progress remotely using the latest in dental technology.
Clearly, to safeguard our futures, we must learn how to excel in the digital dental world. Digital orthodontics, however, is not being taught in university dental courses.
BOSS – Best Orthodontic Seminars & Sessions – was created specifically to bridge this knowledge gap for dental professionals. After delivering orthodontic skills courses for a number of years, in 2018 we proudly launched the world’s first accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Orthodontics. Now, we are able to deliver the entire Diploma online. Ideal for those who are unable to take time away for face-to-face workshops and courses, the Online Diploma doesn’t only enable you to learn and review content at your own pace, but also eliminates both the need to take time off work, and the expense of the associated travel and accommodation.
The Diploma is built on the three pillars of enhancing your competence, confidence and case acceptance in order to support the growth of your career, your practice and your profitability.
So how does it do this? The most effective form of education in dentistry has been proven to be case-based learning, so the Online Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Orthodontics uses this approach to teach dentists who are adopting orthodontic techniques the good, the bad and the ugly of clear aligners.
By learning from the mistakes of those who have attempted treatments without possessing the skills to competently do so, course attendees can avoid making the same errors themselves.
Over 12 months, the Online BOSS Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Orthodontics uses a strategy of risk management and troubleshooting to replace the guesswork of digital orthodontics with tried and true methods for best practice.
Through the BOSS e-learning platform, online course attendees learn how to diagnose cases and understand complexities; plan treatment with digital methods and workflows; and manage risk and finish cases to a high standard.
In addition to the 24/7 e-learning platform, the diploma features support, feedback and community in the form of a private case discussion platform (via Slack), access to live and recorded webinars, group coaching via a Discussion Forum, and unlimited online support.
The 12-month BOSS program, leading to a Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Orthodontics, equips you to master clear aligners and digital orthodontics to deliver modern, practical and profitable new treatments in your practice. With old-school fixed braces going the way of the dinosaurs, this is no longer just a useful skill to possess – it’s an essential one.
