CareerFusion, AOS join forces in online education

June 14, 2012

CareerFusion has joined with the American Orthodontic Society to educate dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants with cutting edge information on a variety of orthodontic topics. Using Internet and software platforms used for Webinars and online schools CareerFusion will help bring to life articles from the AOS journal and classes to support the hands-on classes offered by AOS.

“This joint venture will really be an added benefit to our members and increase our membership," said Tom Chapman, executive director of AOS. "AOS caters to general dentists who would like to offer orthodontic treatment to their patients. Sometimes it’s not feasible to refer cases out. Internet learning is not new and it’s time we embraced it. CareerFusion Webinars have a reputation of being educational and worth the time invested in viewing them”.

The first Webinar will feature Dr. David Jackson. Dr. Jackson will discuss the reasons to include orthodontics in the treatment mix of general practitioners. Other speakers will include Dr. Chris Baker, Constance Shuster, RDH, Shirley Gutkowski, RDH, Nancy Brohawn, RDH and other members of CareerFusion and AOS.

Topic will vary from discussing the benefits of breastfeeding to the financial impact offering orthodontics can have on the practice. These are offered at no cost to dental personnel.
