Event Details

In this one-hour interactive webinar, our speaker will examine the place of accelerated orthodontic treatment and whether it’s always associated with higher risk.

Dr Desmond Ong, practising Orthodontist and Clinical Academic – Orthodontics, University of Queensland School of Dentistry will consider risks to the patient and to you as a practitioner, by focusing on clinical and legal risks, alongside your reputation.
