Learn about what is normal, what can wrong and how to fix it
The one and a half day course will aid general dentists who want to add mixed dentition orthodontic treatment to their repertoire without necessarily resorting to full fixed appliance treatment.
In this course you will be guided by Dr Morris Rapaport who will cover normal occlusal development and look at the common departures from normal and look in detail at ways to treat abnormality that are appropriate to general dental practice. Hygienists and therapists interested in recognising developing occlusal abnormalities will also benefit from attending.
There will be a “tell us all just one thing you learned in this course” session at the end of day one and a self-marking test at the conclusion of day two. This enables revision of the content, reinforces it, exposes any gaps in your knowledge and enables self-reflection on how much each participant has absorbed and understood.
Courses which do not receive sufficient enrolments are subject to cancellation. If a course is cancelled, full course payment will be refunded.

Dr Morris Rapaport
Morris Rapaport first graduated in 1976 and then obtained a MDSc in Orthodontics from the University of Sydney in 1980. He is in specialist orthodontic practice, is a part time lecturer at The University of Sydney and is an Invisalign Platinum Provider. He has been involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching for decades and has lectured nationally and internationally.
Morris has had a long interest in functional appliances and in the early 1990's developed a course in the clinical use and theoretical underpinning of functional appliances, which he delivers annually to the Sydney University postgraduate students. After receiving an award for “outstanding presentation and treatment” of a case he began treating in 1991 with the then new Clark Twin Blocks, he published a paper in the Australian Orthodontic Journal (March 1998) demonstrating the application of the Bass Aesthetic Analysis in functional appliance diagnosis.
Morris is well known for his ability to simplify complex issues and presents them using liberal doses of humour to make lectures not only highly accessible, but enjoyable and memorable.
