CGDent recorded webinar, Tuesday 17 January 2023

This webinar is the first in the College’s Introduction to Orthodontics series of webinars.

This three-part CGDent webinar series, led by specialist orthodontist Prof Ross Hobson, aims to explore the possibilities and limitations of orthodontic treatment with Fixed Braces, alongside giving an insight into the CGDent Postgraduate Diploma in Primary Care Orthodontics, delivered by the College’s Trusted Provider, IAS Academy.

The series explores some of the most crucial aspects in orthodontic treatment, focusing predominantly on; assessment, diagnosis and planning, fixed appliance therapy and orthodontic retention.
