Dr Rushil Lachhani shares his insights into the field of GDP orthodontics and the benefits of quality training and support.
I decided to seek out orthodontic training so that I would be able to provide more comprehensive care for my patients. Orthodontic treatment underpins restorative dentistry and having a good understanding of both is very important to be able to deliver the best treatment for your patients.
I was looking for more than just a quick one- or two-day course that offered little effective teaching to take back into practice. I tried a free orthodontic course from a well-known training provider and this left me with a lack of confidence to put what I’d learnt into practice, so I went searching for something else.
Having seen the attention to detail in training provided by IAS Academy, it was an easy decision for me to enroll on their courses. The mentoring for cases provided by the Academy was something that really stood out. I also liked the specific learning pathway designed to make sure that all the cases you treat are within your skill set.
I have now completed the following courses: Inman Aligner, ClearSmile Aligner, ClearSmile Brace and Ortho-Restorative course. The content and delivery for all have been exceptional. Both Tif [Qureshi] and Anoop [Maini] teach in a way that is informative but also entertaining. This combination really helps the take home message stick and the techniques and concepts taught can be applied to your practice the very next day.
I feel like the IAS Academy ethos really helps to promote the best treatment possible for patients. It focuses on the long-term outcome rather than the short-term appearance, which is something that can only benefit our patients in relation to their health and finances. The Academy also helps you progress as a dentist and tackle more difficult cases once you are at the appropriate level to do so.
The support is excellent and the mentors are always very quick to respond with help. The great thing about the mentoring is that it helps you understand why you should do what is recommended – you are not just told what to do. This means you can learn and apply this knowledge in the future. The mentors are very approachable and eager to teach what they know.
My dentistry has improved massively since taking IAS Academy courses and I now not only provide more orthodontic treatment, but I also feel much more confident tackling cases that I would have previously turned away or referred. My overall breadth of knowledge has widened and I can now apply it daily for the benefit of all my patients. I always aim to encourage/advise patients about the long-term benefits of orthodontic treatment prior to any cosmetic work to ensure the best chances of long-lasting results. This reduces patient chair time and, more importantly, the amount of money they have to spend to have constant repair work done.
I would like to continue improving my skills and IAS Academy has helped me find the right pathway to do this. I would absolutely recommend the courses to all dentists, as this is an absolute game changer!
