Chapter 1:  Benefits of Properly Bonded and Positioned Brackets

Chapter 2:  Criteria for Properly Bonded Brackets

Chapter 3:  Bracket Identification

Chapter 4:  Components of a Bracket


This course is not easy. Since you work with patients who trust that you know how to perform these procedures, this course challenges you to thoroughly know this material. It is not like a typical college course where you can just study long enough to pass the test. There is no easy road except to learn this material so well that you are competent, confident, and do your best with each patient.


Chapter 1 discusses the many benefits of bonding brackets properly and accurate positioning initially. Chapter 2 sets a standard for evaluating if a bracket is properly bonded and positioned accurately so  that each learner can produce this standard.

Chapter 3 covers the different methods and materials used in the  manufacturing of brackets.

Chpater 14 illustrates thirteen components of brackets and the purpose of each component is discussed.


This course was written with the help of 3M Unitek, Ormco, Reliance Orthodontics, American Orthodontics, GAC Orthodontics, and several university orthodontic faculty, researchers, and practitioners. Dr. Rebecca Poling was the Editor of this collaboration.
