Orthodontic Mini Residency - Australia (2019-2021)




The Full Face Philosophy: a 3-Year Orthodontic Program.

This program consists of structured learning modules, which include lectures, practical components, live patient demonstrations, and take home assignments
It must be remembered that orthodontics is a clinical discipline. Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it. The saying, "practice makes perfect", certainly holds true in the context of providing orthodontic treatment.
One does not achieve a competent performance in orthodontics solely by listening to a persuasive lecturer or by looking at pictures of treated cases completed by someone else.
The intricacies of treatment procedures, appliance adjustment, biomechanics and patient management can only be mastered when the clinician's basic education is supplemented by hands on clinical experience under the direction of an experienced orthodontic specialist. Dr Derek Mahony will provide this opportunity , whenever feasible, in the context of his continuing education programs.
Dr Mahony presently offers clinical programs in his private practices, where participants observe him delivering orthodontic treatment to a large number of patients while demonstrating all of the procedures and protocols presented in the 18 modules mini-residency.
