Our Teaching Philosophy                   

Our seminars constantly evolve as new information and techniques are deemed compatible the the JAMSTAN philosophy.  This method saves premolars, and instead, uses both expansion and distalization to correct the occlusion.  This course will teach you how to treat to the face in adults, and actually perform orthopedics as well as orthodontics. 

Our teaching method is simple, repeatable and logical.  It will be hard for you to get confused, and you will end up wondering why you waited so long to learn how to perform orthodontic treatment!  We pride ourselves on graduating dentists that are actually working on cases.  If you could interview dentists taking other courses, you would run across a very high fear level with an inability to begin a case.  In our course, all participants will begin their first case after Session 2.  They will then be presenting their case to the group in order for everyone to become involved with the manner in which diagnosis and treatment planning is performed.
