Il Corso

 

The course is aimed at dentists and orthodontists who wish to develop the diagnosis and therapy according to Bioprogressive Science (Robert Murray Ricketts). The course consists of two modules of six days each. Each module is divided into three parts: theory, practice and clinic.

The theoretical part aims to give the basis for diagnosis and treatment according to the most recent developments for the prevention and correction of malocclusions concerning young people who are still growing and also for adult patients.

During the practical part the construction of all devices used in Bioprogressive Science and Tecnique will be explained clearly and in great detail. The speaker will pay particular attention to the assessment of the concepts inherent to the theoretical part and offer valuable assistance during the practical part, using educational handouts and audiovisual material which will be delivered during the course.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to attend the COS Clinic directed by Dr. Sambataro and will have the opportunity to ask questions regarding their own clinical experience.
