It was felt that the courses now being conducted lacked the depth and scope that was needed for a good education in fixed orthodontics. The courses that purports to teach fixed orthodontics in a few days, weeks or months time does not do justice to the vast field of orthodontics and produce at best half baked practitioners with knowledge in and slave to a particular technique / prescription, unable to innovate or adapt to newer developments in the field. As Dr.Burstone says, a good practitioner of the art and science of fixed orthodontics must grow from”orthodontics of personalities" to “orthodontics of biomechanics", delivering what is best to his patient. The 3 tiered course structure of AFO, provides a firm handholding to the participant from the beginner stage until he becomes an expert practitioner.
