Three Year Orthodontic Program: Orthodontics related to Function, Occlusion and the Cranio-Mandibular System
Starting: March 13 - 16, 2024

Course Overview

Three Year Orthodontic Program

Paradigm Shift in Orthodontics and Occlusion

This Occlusion and Orthodontic program is addressed to general dentists who have realized that orthodontics has become a fundamental cornerstone of their restorative/prosthetic practice or want to add orthodontics to their interdisciplinary treatment offerings.

This Occlusion and Orthodontic program is also addressed to orthodontists who are looking for treatment alternatives to orthognathic surgery, premolar extractions, extra-oral forces and for new treatment options for malocclusions with dysfunction.

The IDEA Occlusion and Orthodontic Program is based on the research and clinic of Profes. Sadao Sato, Japan and Rudolf Slavicek, Austria. It is based on studying and understanding nature’s approach in functional, healthy, and stable dentitions.

Experience the Paradigm shift to Occlusion and Orthodontics of the 21st Century

This 3-year Orthodontic Program goes way beyond just orthodontics. It teaches Modern Occlusion and Function which applies to any dental discipline and patient treatment. This program is beneficial for every patient of your practice.

It will teach you the foundation of stable dentistry and orthodontics:
Advanced, evidenced-based Occlusion and Dynamics
Modern Understanding of:
– Functional Role of the Maxillofacial Complex
– Growth and Development
– Development and treatment of Malocclusion and TMJ dysfunction (TMD)

Applying this knowledge and skills will be beneficial to all patients of your practice, not just orthodontic patients.

“Sato-Orthodontics” – Orthodontics of the 21st Century

Why “Sato-Orthodontics”?

Traditional orthodontics is treating teeth as if they would be independent structural units. This approach works in some cases. In many cases challenges occur already during treatment or shortly after the treatment is finished. When patients stop wearing retainers after orthodontic treatment, many cases relapse. Patients start to observe tooth migration, feel interferences, bites are opening, or patients experience physical symptoms, like TMD, migraine, and so on. The number of dysfunctional patients is significantly rising in dental practices. More dental treatment options and increasing life stress brought increasing dental problems. In this context, Prof. Sato’s Orthodontic concept stands out as a unique treatment option since this concept can achieve treatment results which cannot be achieved with traditional orthodontics or any other dental discipline.

The IDEA Orthodontic Program is a true career and practice changer

What is different in “Sato-Orthodontics” compared to any other orthodontic concept?

Early in his career, Prof. Sato faced his own orthodontic failures and relapses. This made him realize that another approach in orthodontics is necessary to achieve predictable longevity. Significant research was triggered.

Prof. Sato’s approach takes into consideration not only mandibular movement, function, but also the adaptative capacity of mandibular position and joints. His concept is based on functional principles and applies the natural principle of mandibular adaption in human growth to orthodontic treatment.

Based on functional diagnostics combined with powerful mechanics, his concept obtains stable results through etiological therapy rather than structural treatment. Therefore, Prof. Sato’s concept can achieve treatment results, which cannot be achieved with traditional orthodontic approaches, such as:

A unique opportunity for you to prepare your practice for the future

The interactive format of lectures, case discussions and hands-on for clinic and laboratory procedures, enables you to fully integrate the “Sato” concept into your interdisciplinary practice.

The modular structure of 3-to-4-day segments allows you to continue your practice and to attend this program. This format has been successfully taught for over 20 years to thousands of dentists and orthodontists around the world.

By learning the “Slavicek / Sato” concept you are entering a dental world which is way ahead of anything else in the dental field.

This treatment approach will make your dentistry highly predictable and stable, your dental life much easier, and your practice outstanding.

You will become the problem solver way beyond your community
