Course programme

Can you learn Orthodontics in such a short time?

Yes. You can start learning orthodontics with the AFO Level I / Level II course.

The only thing which stop you from practicing fixed orthodontics is that your knowledge in this area is a complete zero. AFO Level i and Level II course will provide you thorough theoretical and practical knowledge in one technique in fixed orthodontics, viz. Straight Wire MBT (3rd generation) system. Coupled with our extensive online support, you will start doing simple cases in your clinic, with each case being discussed with the faculty over internet using our Case Discussion Template. We recommend starting on generalized spacing cases and Cl I bimax cases needing first premolar extraction. These are some of the easiest cases to treat with fixed orthodontics.

After about 80 cases and 1 to 2 years later, you can then attend the AFO Level II or Level III course for advanced orthodontics if you feel that you want to learn more in orthodontics. In Level II you learn Realistic Treatment Philosophy and Orthodontics of Biomechanics. In Level III you learn other extant techniques in orthodontics including Mini Screw Implants. After this you can go even further and learn Lingual orthodontics once you have the AFO Fellowship at Level III. The total time taken for this process is about 3 years by which time you will have become a "complete" orthodontics practitioner.

This course is intended for dentists who have little or no experience in orthodontics and want to learn to incorporate it into their practices or progress from removable appliances to a comprehensive, fixed technique.
