This course describes many compelling reasons why the GP office is a wonderful place for patients to receive orthodontic care. Research confirms that a patient’s satisfaction with his or her orthodontic care is universally good whether treated by a specialist or GP. This course outlines a formalized method of support, communication and education between GPs and an orthodontic specialist driven collaborative platform. Easy to understand rules of thumb for the inexperienced dentist to guide in choosing patients with the most predictable problems to treat is explained.
Description of Speaker:
Dr. German is well known throughout the dental world for his innovations in treating and educating others in how to correct the entire spectrum of malocclusions, all while rendering exceptional service to those that interact with him and his team.
For the past 25 years he has traveled the world as a keynote speaker, teaching the clinical aspect of orthodontics and practice development to specialists and general practitioners alike. Dr. German has participated in a two-week teaching tour starting in Australia where he lectured at the National Orthodontic Society, the University of Sydney, and finally the Equilibration Society in Chicago.
He has bundled his expertise in everything 3-D with a penchant for finding ways to solve dental problems using new and better solutions. Dr. German helped develop systems for an easy and precise way to place braces without any lab work. He is a true pioneer in orthodontics with Interceptive Orthodontics, aligner therapy, and 3-D imaging.
All of his innovations, published articles, and teaching at The Ohio State University resulted in receiving what he considers the crown jewel of his career, being named The Distinguished Alumni from the University of Louisville Orthodontic Department — only the second time the award has been bestowed.
With all of these accomplishments, he is most proud of his role as a dad and grandpa, raising seven children with his wife, Teri. Fitness, learning, and teaching remain his hobbies.
