I took the course because I wanted to learn more as a GP about when it is appropriate to refer a child for early interventive therapy rather than the details of the appliances themselves. If more could be added to the course from that standpoint, that would be great for those of us who would like to know.
Great, detailed course!

Very detailed course about different appliances used in early care. It definitely made me more curious about orthodontics in children and young adults. I will try to use some of these appliances in my future practice as general dentist treating children. Thank you!
Nice presentation
