During the TAD Challenge Mentorship Program you will experience exclusive one-on-one tutoring directly with Dr. Baumgaertel, the leading TADs education expert.
This is neither a weekend course, nor a 'cookie-cutter' online seminar offering hypothetical solutions. This is a one year program in which you will learn the planning and placement of TADs for your active patients.
To achieve proficiency, research suggests you need to place at least ten TADs per year. This is why the program covers the insertion of up to ten TADs, which will get you started on the road to mastery.
The first stage of achieving TAD mastery is to attend some of Dr. Baumgaertel's lectures or courses, which will teach you evidence based fundamentals, from planning and placing TADs to loading and biomechanical implementation. Deep understanding of the subject matter builds the foundation of subsequent stages.
Theory is great, but true mastery in TAD use comes through personal motivation to stop accepting compromise. Be willing to step outside your comfort zone and unlock the power TADs have in your clinical practice to benefit your patients. This program will provide you with the confidence to act on your motivation.
The last stage requires you to develop consistency at TAD use. You need to place TADs over and over again until the process is engrained in your mind and your body to the point that you can see a problem and immediately know how to solve it, that you can do an insertion and know immediately that it feels right or wrong. Congratulations: Mastery achieved!
The TAD Challenge Mentorship Program is an educational program available only to certified orthodontic specialists interested in clinical implementation of TADs and miniscrews.
Due to popular demand, the program is now available to international orthodontists also, beginning with the Class of 2020. Prerequisite is fluent written and spoken English.
This is not a program that will teach you TADs use from the beginning. It requires prior knowledge and a good understanding of Dr. Baumgaertel's fundamental principles. You will only be eligible to join the program if you've attended at least a one hour lecture of Dr. Baumgaertel.
New for 2021: as a result of the pandemic and the very limited courses taught in 2020, Dr. Baumgaertel will teach an exclusive online lecture in early January 2021 for registered doctors. This is included in the course fee.
