Mastership Orthodontic Program 

(The start date announced may change)

A Clinical program for 10 candidates in a batch @ EMI Rs.17500 *


This is a comprehensive clinical orthodontic course with DIRECT PATIENT contact. You will be treating patients in a clinical setting. Classes will be for 3 Days approximately every two months, for a total of  5 modules spread over One Year. With additional days to complete cases under supervision.  There also will be time to go over case records brought from each participant’s own practice. 

Associate Mastership Award from AIOI Argentina and Universidad Alberta Interamericana upon satisfactory completion of these  Modules and completion of 2 clinical cases


The Comprehensive Clinical Course offers advantages not found in other orthodontic courses:

  • It is truly a hands-on experience.
  • Patients are provided for each participant.
  • There are ongoing support and case consultation with the instructor throughout the program and 1 year of monitoring privileges upon completion of the course, with current Mastership.

Why take this course?

1) Participating Doctors treat actual patients!
2) Our program is the closest thing out there is to an orthodontic residency without having to leave / close practice and go to a full-time master.
3) The comfort level that students will develop knowledge that they are fully supported and have already been treating actual patients under an instructor's supervision.


  • To facilitate your professional growth by providing an environment in which you will learn by active participation.
  • To enable you to more comprehensively service those who come to you for dental care.
  • To help you become knowledgeable and confident in using the Straight-wire Technique.


This course is intended for dentists who have little or no experience in orthodontics and want to learn to incorporate it into their practices or progress from removable appliances to a comprehensive, fixed technique. The 5 MODULE course is a comprehensive program, not a “short weekend” program of listening and writing. This is a one-of-a-kind, hands-on orthodontic course – an extended experience requiring a commitment of time and energy.
