The Orthodontic Training Program is a comprehensive series of orthodontic seminars for the general dentist and for the orthodontist on how to use the Straight Wire Appliance (SWA).

This complete program will enable the participant to learn the Art of Modern Orthodontics: that is the ability to recognize orthodontic problems as they develop in their own patients, to properly diagnose and then to treat these patients to the highest orthodontic and esthetic standards.

The SWA (and variations thereof) is the most popular fixed orthodontic appliance used today. With this appliance the dentist has absolute control of the orthodontic treatment.

Using Dr Brown’s system, you will be able to obtain for your patients:

  • an esthetic harmony of the face, lips, jaws and teeth
  • a treatment of most younger patients without extracting teeth by using “Growth Modification”
  • an optimal occlusion
  • a beautiful, pleasing smile and facial appearance

For younger patients, Dr Brown and his team of doctors, teach the use of the SWA as a “Fixed Functional Appliance”: that is by working in harmony with nature and by employing gentle force systems, the doctor can correct soft tissue dysfunctions as well as CLII and CLIII skeletal dysfunctions. In this manner the treating doctor can obtain a beautiful esthetic result as well as an optimal occlusion. 

With Dr. Brown’s system, “removable functional appliance therapy”, which forces the mandible forward or backward in an un-natural manner and is quite often unsuccessful due to the inherent limitations in these types of appliances (as well as the lack of patient compliance), is not needed nor used.

Adult treatments: extraction, non-extraction and surgical treatments will be addressed. The participant doctors will as well learn how to combine orthodontics with restorative/prosthetic/implant treatments by using comprehensive orthodontic treatment beforehand so as to obtain a superior restorative/esthetic result.

Dr. Brown has organized the Orthodontic Training Program so that even participants with no prior knowledge of orthodontics and/or the SWA will be able to gain the practical knowledge, confidence and experience needed to treat patients of all ages. The participants will learn which instruments and orthodontic materials to use when, where and why during the course of a treatment.

The course is also valuable for the practitioner who already practices orthodontics but does not fully understand all aspects of SWA orthodontic treatment and who wishes to learn the California Straight Wire System of Dr. Brown, which will enable high quality, consistent results. The Orthodontic Training Team includes : Dr. Larry Brown, Dr. Izabela Pietruczuk, Dr. Marta Breczko, Dr. Weronika Wojciechowska and Mr. Rajmund Chmielewski. 

“Dr. Brown presents an extremely efficient course on the Straight Wire Appliance. Using modern audiovisual aides, he educates using a step by step, month by month analysis of many actual clinical cases. The “workshop exercises” on the typodont are very good and the personal help he provides in the diagnosing and treatment planning of my cases is priceless. This course is definitely worth following and my own clinical results on my patients are excellent.”
