Interceptive Orthodontics: What to treat and what to refer
05/06/2019 18:30, London (UK)


The need for interceptive orthodontics should be assessed at every visit of the growing patient.  Many common developing orthodontic problems can be treated with ease early, whilst others require an onward referral.  At other times, monitoring is more appropriate. Parmjit will outline the presentation of a range of different developing orthodontic problems and highlight their management strategies.



- Be familiar with normal and abnormal development in relation to orthodontics
