General Dentists Doing Orthodontics [STRAIGHTPRIL] – PDP067

We don’t refer all our extractions, root canals and crowns – then surely there is a role of GDPs to carry out Orthodontics? In the last 10 years we have seen a boom in GDP Orthodontics and much of this is ‘Alignment Only Orthodontics’. Protruserati, welcome to Straightpril!

Dr Nick Simon shares his journey and advice with Jaz

In this episode we discuss:

  • How GDPs can get involved in Orthodontics
  • Which, according to Dr Nick Simon, is the best Orthodontic system for GDPs?
  • His views on all the Dentists jumping on the Invisalign bandwagon
  • How significant is the loss of anterior guidance in ‘STO’ (Short Term Ortho) cases
  • The 2 most common mistakes GDPs make while carrying out Orthodontics

Sponsor: Did you check out the Mini Smile Makeover course? You can attend again in the future at no additional cost – THAT’s awesome!

Protrusive Dental Pearl: I use the Beauty and the Beast Mirror to ask patients what they hate most about their smile. It injects personality and humour – but you also find out exactly what the patient does not like about their smile!
