What would you expect a dentist to be able to do in terms of treatment by the end of the year (assuming attendance at all of the courses)?

The following are learning objective that I would hope you would achieve at the end of 12 months and the 6 courses in 2017:

  • Learn how to diagnose orthodontic problems including airways disorders with confidence in our own setting
  • What you could do should you not refer
  • When to refer to a specialist and timings of such referrals
  • How to handle case-based problems rather than treating to a classification system/cookbook approach
  • Broad overview of a large number of topics, hot topics and case-based problem solving in groups
  • Alert for red flags and risk management if undertaking treatment in your setting
  • Justify treatment decision based on evidence
  • Critical appraisal of exisiting literature on a variety of orthodontic areas
  • Orthodontic treatment in mixed dentition in your setting (maxillary expanders, functional appliances, space maintainers, partial fixed appliances, etc)
  • Treat your adult and teen patients with fixed appliances or clear aligners more confidently – this is a progression from simple to moderate malocclusions
  • Learn to use multiple systems for orthodontic treatment from fixed appliances, to clear aligners

How much support do we get during the course and after with cases?

If enrolling for the year, you will receive mentorship for your 5 orthodontic cases at any stage of treatment within the year of enrolment. The support level can vary according to the needs of the case – from diagnosis to treatment planning to digital setups (eg. Clinchecks for your Invisalign patients). We intend to always respond within 1-2 weeks with a thorough summary and rationale behind any suggestions. The support for your Team can also be added whereby we can train your team in photography, assisting for orthodontics and patient support.

What People Are Saying

  • Having always steered away from clear aligners and only stuck with fixed braces, I’ve finally decided to give aligners a go this year. BOSS is extremely practical, informative and backed up by heaps of research. Dr. V is a great mentor, she’s always helpful and truthful. The team at BOSS and CCC smiles are just amazing, always there to help you whenever you need, even if it was a question that’s been repetitively asked many many times. I would highly recommend BOSS to anyone who wishes to start their journey in digital orthodontics. With Dr. V and her team behind me, my confidence level is soooo much higher and I feel like I am delivering my treatment to a higher standard and overall making me a better clinician. Thank you Dr. V!!

    Dr Claire Chiu, Dentist QLD
  • I joined BOSS in 2018 for the full year, and the wealth of knowledge that Vandana shares is immeasurable! This course is perfect for absolute beginners and also those with more experience, and Vandana caters it perfectly for the whole group. All her information is evidence based and very relatable for general dentists, giving you information that those “generic” 1-3 day clear aligner courses cannot give you. BOSS is a very comprehensive course. I highly recommend it, I plan to join BOSS again!

    Dr Michelle Sujenie, Dentist VIC
  • Since I have joined the postgraduate diploma in orthodontics I have noticed all the applied practical learning/knowledge on my patients and I am only half way through the year. Dr Vandana is a genuine educator. She goes way beyond to simplify every lecture and I really like her evidence based information and that is available for us 24/7. Her webinars helped a lot for busy dentists and loved the feedback we get in the one on one sessions with our cases. It make us think every step of the way. But the best thing I like is to see she is giving back to the community and her association with Smile Train in helping children with cleft palate is just beyond words. Thank you so much for being nice and approachable.

    Dr Claudia Braybon, Dentist
  • I just attended the 2018 Boss Course 1 in Melbourne. It was a comprehensive introduction into orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. I have walked away feeling confident in my knowledge and abilities. I recommend this course to beginners and those with more experience. The group was small and the course felt tailored to our individual levels of experience. Dr Katyal was so kind and approachable and generously shared her knowledge. The course was heavily scientifically based and Dr Katyal frequently referred to the literature and gave recommended pre-readings to enhance our knowledge and make the most of the session.

    Dr Rachael McDonald, Dentist, Melbourne
  • Dr Katyal shares so much of her own protocol and is extremely generous not only with her time but with the well thought out information she provides along with the course such as inventory lists, marketing material and case presentation templates. She tailors her advice to your own experience and helps with appropriate case selection, points out possible pitfalls and helps you understand how to overcome them. The course is also up-to-date using the latest technologies in orthodontics and is heavily evidence-based.

    I would recommend it to anyone wanting to start doing some orthodontic treatment or looking for a more comprehensive course to assist in some ortho they are already doing.

    Dr Becky Dudman, Melbourne
  • This course has taken my knowledge of clear aligner orthodontics to the next level. In a field which is historically protected/guarded by the orthodontic profession Dr Vandana is very generous with her years of specialist knowledge and experience. I would highly recommend this to every dentist wanting to incorporate clear aligners in their practice.
