ITICourses.com trains in Orthodontic Practice Systems

 

Run an efficient, organized, quality practice where everyone knows what to do and how to do it. The administrative staff know and understand what the clinical staff are doing and why, and vice versa.

 

From the first new patient phone call through retention, there is a system of integration of the patient.

 

ITI Courses train employees in the systems listed below. The doctor can set the courses to be learned by each employee and then monitor employee progress in completion of courses.  

 

 
 

118.01 Treatment Record

The Treatment Record should be the center of communication in the practice. This course teaches all team members to easily read and understand the Treatment Record. It is integrated with the doctor's Diagnosis and Treatment Plan session also taught by ITICourses. This Treatment Record course:

  • Presents a Sample Treatment Record

  • Teaches a method for recording the detail of the delivery of treatment to a patient

  • Teaches a system for quick reference on the Treatment Record

    • Patient’s initial data

    • Patient's progress data

    • Medical alerts

    • Patient's detailed Treatment Plan

    • Estimated Target Date for completion of treatment

  • Forms for gathering the information from the new patient at the first phone call

  • Procedures for conducting a New Patient Exam

  • Sample Forms that guide the New Patient Coordinator to 
    • Review the Medical History, Growth Data, Dental History, Social History, Patient Attitude and Concerns, and family orthodontic background 
  • A system of examining the patient using the one page Exam Form

108.01 Basic Oral Hygiene for Patients

Basic Oral Hygiene For Patients is an online course used to quickly teach patients with and without braces. It can be used to teach only one section such as oral hygiene with braces (5 minutes) or to teach the adolescent about decalcification, gum disease, and brushing and flossing (14 minutes).

 

The patient can view the presentation alone or with the help of a staff member. Each section has interactive quizzes where the learner may check understanding. At the end of the course there is a post-test with 10 questions for patients with and without braces. The results of this test can be printed.

 

All staff members should be familiar with the concepts taught in this program so that the full team can give the same message to patients about oral hygiene methods.

 

If you want to link Basic Oral Hygiene Online to your website for free please follow the instructions on this website. This link can be  placed on school and health websites free of charge. Also, Basic Oral Hygiene for patients is on CD-ROM for retail sales and on a Mini-CD for giving as a gift to patients. All proceeds from this program are donated to Children's Healthy Smiles Project, www.childrenssmileproject.com, a California non-profit corporation that provides oral hygiene supplies to children in need.

106.00 Introduction To Orthodontic Bonding

This introductory section of the Orthodontic Bonding course is designed to help the practice determine the best way to use this course to meet the needs of the practice.  The overall course is partitioned into sections which can be viewed individually to focus on a particular area of bonding or the overall course can be viewed in its entirety by the clinical team.

 

For instance, your practice may have a high percentage of loose brackets. To correct this, focus on the method presented in the chapter "Bond Troubleshooting" to measure Bond Failure Percentage. Once you have this information, you can analyze the problem such as which assistants are having loose bonds, are loose bonds mostly on molars or other teeth, is there adhesive remaining on the bracket or on the tooth, and other factors to determine the cause of the bond failures. Once you know the reason, you and your staff may view the sections of this course that will help all of you correct the problem.

Chapter 2:  Criteria for Properly Bonded Brackets

Chapter 3:  Bracket Identification

Chapter 4:  Components of a Bracket

 

Chapter 1 discusses the many benefits of bonding brackets properly and with 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 4 presents thirteen components of brackets and the purpose of each component.

 

Several checklists and forms are included with each course.

106.04 Bracket Placement Sequence

This section covers:

CHAPTER 10: Sequence of Bracket Placement.

 

In this chapter a specific sequence of placing and curing brackets is recommended that reduces moisture contamination problems and allows balanced positioning of brackets on each tooth on the right side and then the left.

 

This method uses efficient time management by maximizing the skills of the well-trained orthodontic assistant and requiring the doctor only for the critical step of final bracket positioning.

 

 

 

 %030 bond 4 select brackets  %031 bond 4 7-7 bonding

106.08 Bracket Placement and Final Positioning

This course covers tooth landmarks that may be used when positioning brackets during a direct bonding or when positioning brackets on a model for indirect bonding. Use of these principles by the doctor and all team members during direct bonding standardizes desired bracket positions so that all team members will “see” when a bracket is not in position and may need to be repositioned for more efficient treatment.

 

The goal of this course is to help the clinical team and doctor accomplish more accurate bracket placement during direct bonding.

 

 

   

 

   
 

106.05 Bonding Difficult Areas

This section covers:

CHAPTER 11: Bonding Difficult Areas

CHAPTER 12: Bond Troubleshooting

CHAPTER 13: Rebonding A Bracket

 

When bonding difficult areas such as blocked out maxillary laterals, high maxillary canines, and all second and third molars, there are five factors to evaluate before preparation of the teeth. These include:

  • The best method of isolation
  • Visibility
  • Access
  • Bracket size
  • Occlusion

When troubleshooting for bonding problems, it is useful to use a spreadsheet program included in the Orthodontic Bonding Course, Bracket Failure Charting, to determine the amount of bond failures and possible causes through recurring trends. Such trends might be that all the adhesive remains on the bracket with none on the tooth, and possible causes of this problem.

 

Different methods of rebonding a bracket are also covered such as with a microetcher and without one.

CHAPTER 17: Bonding a Lingual Retainer

This part demonstrates every step for bending and bonding a wire lingual retainer from maxillary lateral to maxillary lateral and mandibular canine to mandibular canine. Checklists for detailing each step are also included for clinical application of concepts.

 

 

 

   

 

Orthodontic Wires

All team members should be familiar with the wires used in treatment and the phases of treatment a type of wire represents. Then, at a quick glance the team member can assess the progress of treatment by knowing the current wires the patient has.   

 
 

107.01 Wire Basics

Orthodontic wires are selected and used by the orthodontist to accomplish specific purposes. This course discusses different phases of treatment, the types of orthodontic wires for each phase, and when they are selected to accomplish a specific purpose.

Orthodontic Finishing System

Every orthodontic practice is challenged when "finishing" the treatment of a patient. The concepts of this System were published in the AJODO in May of 1999. It is a comprehensive system that uses the Detailing Form to organize the assessment of the patient and then record all of the tasks that have to be completed to complete the patient's treatment. This system involves all team members performing specific tasks that facilitate completion of the patient's treatment with excellent results.
