This course is addressed to all Orthodontists and Dentists who are looking for new treatment options regarding the treatment of complex cases or dysfunctional patients. Prof. Sato will give you treatment alternatives in regards to avoiding orthognathic surgery, premolar extractions, and extra-oral forces. You will experience a treatment concept which is predictable, and achieves a stable Class I occlusion with no retention necessary after three months post orthodontic treatment.

The course participants have been impressed by Prof. Sato’s concepts, research, techniques, and especially his clinical results. There is no doubt that Prof. Sato is the finest orthodontist in the world. He understands diagnosis, treatment planning, function, occlusion, orthodontic mechanics and interdisciplinary dentistry.
