Event Details

Many factors influence treatment outcome, and it begins with thorough data collection and diagnosis. Advanced imaging can better inform diagnosis and treatment planning, and outcome studies can help estimate the prognosis. A realistic perspective on our capacity to predict the prognosis is essential. Two-way communication helps to ascertain patient expectations and ensure that the patient understands the risks and potential complications associated with treatment.

AORTA Australia

Aesthetic Orthodontic and Restorative Training Academy (AORTA) is the brain-child of Dr John Hagiliassis and was started to address this big gap in the dental industry where upskilled dentists are not utilising their ability due to a lack of implementation and systemisation of aesthetic orthodontics in their practice. AORTA provides clinical training and mentorship to general dentists who desire to develop and advance their skill in Aesthetic Orthodontics encompassing clear aligners, whitening and direct bonding and veneers. AORTA utilises cutting edge technology to deliver face-to-face and online engaging and interactive training programs for dentists and their team. The training programs are developing a standardised way of operating that increases clinical efficiency, cost effectiveness, patient care, safety and satisfaction.
