Starting: May 15 - 18, 2024

Course Overview

Orthodontic Course Sato Orthodontics

In modern dentistry, orthodontics has become inseparably linked to restorative dentistry, prosthetics, and periodontics to facilitate the treatment condition of these disciplines. At the same time there is a significant increase in dysfunctional patients consulting dental practices and presenting deteriorating dentitions, failing dental treatment, or developing severe physical symptoms.

These patients are looking for dentists who are able to provide answers and treatment options for the dysfunctional condition of their teeth and jaws.  Under this aspect, Orthodontics in the “Sato way” stands out as a fundamental concept for the general and orthodontic practice to treat dysfunctional patients and to achieve predictably functional stable treatment outcomes in all patients.

This Program will give you Completely New Treatment Options

Orthodontics is always a full mouth rehabilitation and therefore needs to be diagnosed and treatment planned in this perspective.

At the same time orthodontics is also the most minimally invasive treatment option, which makes it very valuable as pre-restorative treatment.

And orthodontic treatment can achieve treatment goals, which are impossible to achieve with any other dental disciplines, which is successfully treating dysfunctional patients into a functional state.

Modern Occlusion and a Paradigm Shift in Development and Growth

The IDEA orthodontic course is an exceptional program which thoroughly teaches the theoretical and practical aspects of Prof. Sato’s Concept of Cranio-Mandibular Orthodontics.

This orthodontic concept is based on Prof. Sato’s research on growth and occlusal plane. The alterations of occlusal plane and posterior vertical dimension leading to mandibular adaptation are the key aspects of this concept.

The treatment approach combines diagnostics and treatment planning with modern occlusion and a paradigm shift in understanding development and growth. The use of the multiloop (MEAW) and Gunmetal wires facilitate achieving the treatment goals.

This comprehensive approach is making “Sato”- Orthodontics the most powerful treatment option in dentistry because it can achieve treatment results which are impossible for any other orthodontic or interdisciplinary discipline.

General Practitioner, Maidwell, United Kingdom

I admire the way Dr. Kraemer delivers her knowledge to us. She is very structured, precise, and generous. She reads your mind and can see where you are in the learning process. The lab experience is very effective to learn and to adopt the process.

Zeineb Kharouf
General Practitioner, Tunis, Tunisia

Best instructors for diving in deep and becoming a master head and shoulders above the rest.

Alexander Chukreeff
General Practitioner, San Francisco, CA

There are rare moments in my life where I learned something so profound that it brings tears to my eyes. There was a moment where Dr. Velasquez so eloquently explained the inner working of the human skull and how it relates to occlusion, just connected many dots for me.

I am so grateful for this opportunity to learn from those who are so passionate about the art and science of dentistry and how it affects the whole person.

Jenny Stevens
Prosthodontist, Honolulu, HI

I am still at the beginning, but this course is exciting and promising. Nowhere I would learn how, why, and when to intervene in early childhood development to affect the overall growth and potential. Also, how to set up my cases pre-restoratively for stability with occlusion and function afterwards, and longevity of my patient's dentition.

I wish I attended the courses at IDEA earlier.

PeiWei Hsu
General Practitioner, Taipei, Taiwan

This program has been very eye opening. The material covered is something so important that it is shocking that we (as dentists) haven't been shown the importance of these concepts.

I am very eager to learn more, implement this in my practice and help my patients. The facility and staff are exceptional, and the speakers are excellent, friendly, and so knowledgeable.

Martha Iturriaga
General Practitioner, San Jose, CA

This course teaches us 'trouble free' orthodontics. We can provide our patients not only good esthetics but most importantly, better quality of life by eliminating all these symptoms. Applying this concept in our practices sends the level of our service to the highest level.
