I’ve been doing ortho for many years using the “conventional” techniques and concepts (and NM principles) and have had many struggles to properly finish some cases- this course provides me with the answers that I need!

Dr. Jon Feist

Anyone treating TMD must think of this course as essential even if you don’t intend to do ortho. And then you will go back and start doing ortho! My new assistant was sitting at dinner and said “I used to understand a little bit about how ortho works from past experience and training but now I got this. It’s opened doors!”
