Continuing Clinical Orthodontic Programme

The City of London Dental School in association with the Orthosociety's Course and Training Academy (OCTACADEMY) is offering a comprehensive Continuing Clinical Orthodontic Program (CCOP) to accommodate dentists' needs in orthodontic training and education.
This programme can be an alternative for dentists who have limited time to leave their busy practices, but still want to get effective and efficient learning in orthodontics.
The programme consists of 12 modules in both theory and practice. The length of study time can range from 12 to 18 months, depending on the schedule set by our representative offices in each country. The modules can be done by face to face onsite lectures if available in your country otherwise online, making it flexible and less time consuming.
There are some however requirements that you must meet during the learning programme. These requirements that must be met are not to burden you but to make you better understand the material provided, and to enhance your skills in the field of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics. Dentists also have opportunities to attend the mentored clinical session at Orthosociety's lecture centre or even mentored at their own offices if available in their country.
