A sound foundation for excellence

A sound foundation for excellence

 

 

“I was looking to develop my knowledge and expand my skills in GDP orthodontics. I also wanted to build my competence and confidence so that I could take on more complex cases and still deliver safe and effective treatment. The IAS Advanced training course enabled me to do this.”

 

Rahul Kukar from iDental dental practice has embarked upon the IAS Advanced training course, following four years of experience in anterior alignment orthodontics.

 

“The course has been very good, providing a sound academic foundation from which to extend my skills. The quality of instruction and on-going support provided by IAS Academy has been great as well.

 

“While the course finishes in a few months, I already feel much more confident in approaching more complex cases and knowing how to recognise cases that still require referral to a specialist.

 

“My advice for other practitioners would be to gain as much experience as possible with the basic systems, before moving onto the IAS Advanced course, but I would certainly recommend undergoing the training when you’re ready.”

 

If you have extensive experience in fixed GDP orthodontics and wish to develop your skills further, apply for your place today.

Have you considered the IAS Academy?

Have you considered the IAS Academy?

 

“I first heard about the IAS Academy at my local British Dental Association meeting, where Tif Qureshi did a presentation about the ClearSmile Inman Aligner,” says Dr Margaret de Verteuil, an Associate Dentist at Stedham House Dental Surgery in Surbiton.

“I was not only impressed with his enthusiasm and extensive experience offering ethical and safe anterior alignment orthodontic treatment, but with the fact that the guided learning pathway is geared towards GDPs.

“As such, I completed the ClearSmile Inman Aligner certification course in February 2016, the online ClearSmile Aligner course in March 2016, the IAS Ortho Restorative course in September 2016 and I have recently completed the ClearSmile Inman Aligner Advanced course.

“I have found the appliances easy to use, but being able to access guidance through the online support has been invaluable to my progress and I feel much more confident about recommending the treatment to my patients knowing I have help if I need it.

“Since completing the training I am also much more aware of lapsed orthodontic cases and the problems this can cause if left untreated.”

A Thoroughly Enjoyable and Worth While Course

A Thoroughly Enjoyable and Worth While Course

 

 

 

Jaswinder Gill, Principal of Moonlight Dental Surgery, has been offering anterior alignment orthodontics since 2012. He enrolled on the 12-month IAS Advanced training course in 2015 and says:

 

“I was looking to take my skills to the next level so I could provide comprehensive orthodontics to adults and children who have been refused by the NHS. There are very few courses out there that offer this for GDPs, but the IAS Advanced came highly recommended.

 

“I had no idea what to expect, but training covered everything I wanted it to and more. I particularly liked that I could start comprehensive cases from day one, being mentored by Ross Hobson, a Specialist Orthodontist.

 

“The course was excellent – there is no other word for it. Ross is a brilliant teacher and mentor.

 

“I have absolutely gained confidence in my skills and I am now doing cases that I would have definitely referred this time last year.

 

“If you want to progress your orthodontic career as a GDP, then this is the course to do. It entails a lot of hard work and is not a walk in the park, but if orthodontics is your thing then it is thoroughly enjoyable and worth while.”

Inspirational training courses for the Inman Aligner

Inspirational-training-courses-for-the-Inman-Aligner.jpg

Dr. Nick Harrison, from Ponthir Dental Practice of the Restore Dental Group, has been providing the Inman Aligner to patients for the last couple of years.

 

“I had seen the appliance marketed in the professional media and decided to take the hands-on course in order to offer a new option to patients and compliment my professional development.  

 

“The course itself was excellent – very inspirational. The instructors, Tif Qureshi, James Russell and Tim Bradstock-Smith were all very knowledgeable and passionate about what they were doing. They were also really personable, so despite there being many people in attendance, they made an effort to speak to everyone on the course.

 

“Overall patient compliance has been good with the Inman Aligner and cases have progressed quickly with great results. I have already recommended the training course to colleagues and would definitely recommend it to others.”

The Real Thing

b2ap3_thumbnail_The-Real-Thing.jpg

Many great products and ideas are copied or counterfeited, but your patients need to be protected from fake products in order to avoid poorly made and uncomfortable appliances.

 

IAS Academy, providers of genuine anterior alignment orthodontic devices, are helping to put a stop to this – all Inman Aligners will now be supplied with a “Genuine Inman Aligner Authentication Card”.

 

Each time you fit an Inman Aligner you will be able to give your patient an authentication card so that they can enjoy increased reassurance. Patients can then enter their unique identifier code at the Inman Aligner website to ensure that they have received a genuine appliance.

 

All devices are fabricated at a certified Inman Aligner laboratory, with laser etched tubing on the tongue side of the appliance featuring the name Inman Aligner. They are also supplied in a presentation box with patient instructions and a custom appliance case to ensure the best possible results.

 

Make sure your patients are receiving ‘the real thing’ and only accept the best.

“A high quality learning pathway”

A high quality learning pathway

“I was keen to take the Inman Aligner training course after attending an inspirational lecture by Dr. Tif Qureshi on ‘Align, Bleach and Bond’ at the FGDP,” says Dr. Rima Patel, who works at dental practices in Crystal Palace and Carshalton.

 

“Associates in both practices I work in had previously attended and begun offering the appliance to their patients – so there were always enquiries about it. I wanted to develop my skills, in order to also be able to offer patients what they wanted, rather than having to refer them to a colleague.

 

“I had expected there to be more people attending the course on the day – and the lecture to be more crowded. I was pleasantly surprised, however, that it was a small group, and that the lectures were of the highest quality. Everything was explained thoroughly and the hands-on element complemented the presentations.

 

“I would recommend the Inman Aligner training course to others, as I feel the IAS Academy has a structured learning pathway you can follow and the guidance and information provided was of a high quality and very detailed in nature.”

Education of the “highest quality”

Education of the highest quality.

Dr. Rima Patel, who works at dental practices in both Crystal Palace and Carshalton, recently took part in the Inman Aligner training course, provided by the IAS Academy.

 

“I attended the Inman Aligner training course in December 2014,” says Dr. Patel. “I initially booked a place following an inspirational lecture given by Dr. Tif Qureshi on ‘Align, Bleach and Bond’, held at the FGDP. He was also offering a small discount to attendees of that lecture, so it presented a great opportunity.

 

“Several of my colleagues had already been using the Inman Aligner – so patients were always enquiring about it. As a result, I wanted to be able to offer my own patients what they wanted, rather than having to refer them to a colleague.

 

“I had thought that the course would be crowded, that a lot of people would be attending the lecture – but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a small group. The lecture was of the highest quality and everything was explained thoroughly; the hands-on element complemented the presentations very well.

 

“It was also great that there was a small trade fair running over lunch, which gave us the opportunity to meet and talk to different people from different companies.

 

“I would recommend the Inman Aligner training course to others, because I feel as though the IAS Academy provides a structured educational pathway for you to follow – and the guidance and information it offers is of a high quality and detailed in nature.”  

 

The IAS Academy provides a number of training opportunities, including the Inman Aligner course, that are designed to give GDPs the confidence and expertise to offer their patients more in the way of alternative anterior alignment orthodontics. A truly unique and dedicated learning pathway, the IAS Academy focuses on education as much as it does on effective appliances, ensuring excellent levels of competence and success.

‘A very impressive course’ – from the IAS Academy

A very impressive course – from the IAS Academy

Dr. James Tinning of Pinfold Dental Practice, Cheshire took the London Inman Aligner hands-on training course.

“Following a seminar I attended presented by Tif Qureshi, I quickly realised that being able to offer patients the Inman Aligner system would be a great skill to add to my armamentarium.

 

“The course was excellent and very impressive – not only an informative and interesting day, but also a really enjoyable one as well. Instructors Tif Qureshi and James Russell were very professional and they were happy to spend time discussing potential cases.

 

“The appliance itself is very simple to use in practice and I have been able to use both the online support forum and help from NimroDENTAL laboratory to develop my knowledge of the Inman Aligner and treating more complex cases.

 

“I was impressed by the IAS academy hands-on training course and I would definitely recommend it to other colleagues.”

 

Committed to providing the highest quality of training and support, IAS Academy runs courses for the Inman Aligner, ClearSmile Aligners and ClearSmile Braces. To find out more, contact the team today.
