“Dr Katyal’s courses are always very practical, interactive and based on up-to-date evidence. I have completed other orthodontic courses and I have found the structure and organisation of BOSS to be superior. Whilst Dr Katyal is very encouraging of GP dentists doing orthodontic treatment, she ensures that we understand our scope of practice, which allows patients to have the best outcomes. Looking forward to doing more BOSS courses in the future!”
Dr Brodie Hil, Dentist VIC, Nov 2018
“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!”
Michelle Sujenie, Dentist VIC
“I completed course 2 on clear aligners with Vandana Katyal Orthodontist this weekend in Melbourne. Having completed the initial Invisalign training course I was really excited to start, but didn’t feel confident in selecting cases or how to critique the Clinchecks. Vandana’s BOSS course gave me a much better insight into clear aligner systems, what they’re good at and what they’re not so good at. The biomechanics section was particularly useful, and she went over a lot of troubleshooting which I had no idea about previously. Would highly recommend course 2 for anyone starting out with invisalign or other clear aligners!”
Dr James Zvirblis, Dentist NSW
“Engaging, informative, well researched and presented in a modern, relaxed setting. For GP dentists looking for relevant and varied ortho training; BOSS should be part of your squad goals.”
Dr Annem Chaudhry, Dentist VIC
“I have just attended the BOSS weekend in Melbourne and it was so good . Dr Vandana is a wonderful speaker, so down to earth and humble and honest. She shares, as she calls it, the good the bad and the ugly and really shows you what you need to know clinically without making you feel intimidated. She inspires confidence while at the same time helping you to understand your limitations. Crawl, walk, run. Wise words indeed. Thank you Dr Vandana.”
Dr Elaine Walker, Dentist NSW
“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
“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
“I attended BOSS 2017 Course 3 in Sydney and learned a plethora of relevant and up to date orthodontic tips & skills this past weekend. Courses 1 & 2 were equally as wonderful. Thankyou BOSS Team for such amazing courses! I feel ‘hugged’ by the easy flow of information and also confident knowing that the mentorship program is available to us.
Your passion definitely gets passed onto us. I appreciate you sharing all your wealth of knowledge with us. And I look forward to BOSS course 4!”
Dr Vicky Prokopiou, Dentist, NSW
“I have been attending BOSS Courses since early 2016, and am so pleased to have found Vandana and her team! As Orthodontics is such a vast study in itself, BOSS breaks it down into practical and easy to understand concepts, which allows you to become more aware of the orthodontic status of all your patients. I have found so much confidence in being able to deliver orthodontic treatment to my patients after attending BOSS. If you’re someone who hasn’t done any orthodontics and are looking for starter courses, this course is fantastic. It is also a great opportunity for those who have had orthodontic experience in the past (like myself) to enhance, grow and learn more!”
Dr Radhika Singh, Sydney
“Many thanks to BOSS and Dr Vandana Katyal for providing me with a great learning platform for clear aligners. With a previous background in fixed orthodontics, I have always been interested in incorporating clear aligners to give my patients all options when it comes to providing orthodontic treatment in my practice.
After attending BOSS lectures, Dr Katyal has helped grow my confidence in using clear aligners by providing one on one mentoring on clin-checks and also going through some of her own cases that she is treating with Invisalign which has been an eye opener for myself.
I have now got multiple cases of Invisalign undergoing and I don’t shy away in presenting clear aligners as a treatment option for patients requiring orthodontic treatment in my practice.”
Amrinder Oberoi, Dentist, Sydney
“Boss is an amazing seminar well ran by Dr Katyal and her team. The group is small and Dr Katyal caters to the needs of the group. We bring cases along to discuss and we can interrupt to ask questions.
It’s not like other seminars where you get lectured to and they take a few questions at the end . By which time you can’t remember the question you wanted to ask .
The many lecturers are funny , informative and a pleasure to listen to . Ohh ohh I forgot … it’s held at the Hilton hotel and the food is unbelievable!!!”
Amy Lg, Dentist, Sydney
“I am a general dentist in Sydney and a BOSS student in 2016 and now 2017! For the past year BOSS has supported me though my introduction to clear aligners. No other course to my knowledge offers the one-on-one mentorship and case support provided by Dr. Katyal, which is tailored to your level of experience. The program gives you the confidence to provide complex and quality treatment of a Specialist standard. Cannot recommend it highly enough!”
Dr. Melissa Marinovic, Erko Dental, Erskineville
“Although completing quite a comprehensive orthodontics course, nothing compares to having a good mentor. Dr Katyal has given her time, attention and considerable knowledge to help with my orthodontic cases. She is open minded and uses an evidence based approach to her treatment planning. This means she gives multiple options as well and gives the pros and cons to each so that we know of all risks and benefits. By doing this she fosters discussion so that my knowledge expands as we discuss each case. On a personal note, it’s her warmth, friendliness and kind hearted approach that makes it easy to approach her with any questions I may have. I look forward to hearing more from her talk and lectures.”
Dr David Leong, Erko Dental, Sydney
“I have been very happy working with Dr Vandana Katyal, as she is both knowledgable, efficient and makes herself very available. In the age of general dentists working with orthodontists, as part of adult restorative planning, her collaborative approach is wonderful for patients and clinicians alike. For general dentists who like to do basic orthodontic treatments, it is great to have an orthodontic specialist that welcomes this and helps with planning and pitfalls.”
Dr Frank Farrelly, Darlinghurst Dental, Sydney
“One word – FINALLY! BOSS is a breath of fresh air to the dental community.
Its about time we as dental professional have a space to gather under, to expand our knowledge and be at the cusp of the latest international research. BOSS achieves this and more. There are programs and courses out there but they lack the passion, emotional and the comprehensive aspect of dental practice that BOSS gives to its members.
Dr Vandana couldn’t be a better mentor. Within the first 5 minutes of hearing Dr Katyal speak you know her only focus is the patient. Exceedingly intelligent, internationally recognised and supportive, Dr Vandana Katyal brings it all to the table.
Thank you Dr Vandana! – you’ve established what dentists have wanted and needed and filled the gap in the dental community.”
