CLINICAL RESIDENCY UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES
Travel to the United States with your classmates to get to know one of the best universities in the world in the field of orthodontics, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). There you can enjoy watching how they make use of the mini-implants by the hand of their director Dr. Won Moon in real patients.
What is the Clinical Residency?
- Study with the third year residents the different cases that will be seen the next day at the clinic with real patients.
- Adaptation of technology to the world of orthodontics. Implementation of new protocols and updating in the field of mini-implants.
- UCLA Clinic. Clinical observation in real patients with Dr. Won Moon.
- UCLA Clinic. Clinical observation in real patients of other treatment philosophies with other UCLA doctors.
– During these days, you can live the university environment in the orthodontics department of the University of California, Los Angeles ( UCLA).
– Director, Dr. Moon, will give us an in-depth update on the highlights of mini-implants.
– It will be possible to interact with the residents of the orthodontic master of UCLA during the care of their patients. < /p>
– It will be observed how they treat different types of malocclusions with different philosophies but using mini-implants as an auxiliary tool.
– The stay includes guided tours of the university and different departments.
– After the conference, optional plans will be organized to get to know the city and the Gala Dinner will be held on the last day after the clinic.
HANDS-ON IN REAL PATIENTS IN MADRID SUPERVISED BY DR. RAMÓN MOMPELL (OPTION 3 | DATE TO BE AGREED BEFORE APRIL 2020)
DETAILS OF CLINICAL ASSISTANCE
– Take the opportunity to go to the Dr. Mompell clinic in Madrid to be able to place the mini-implants in real patients . If you wish you can bring your own patient and continue receiving the assistance of Dr. Mompell during the process.
– Clinical assistance consists in guiding the doctor for the placement of mini-implants on a real patient of the Dr’s Mompell clinic. You can also choose to place a MARPE and you can even go with a patient of your own so that Dr. Mompell can proceed with the placement of mini-implants or mini-plates.
– The material to be used in case of being a surgical patient suministrated by the student is not included in the price of clinical assistance . In the same way, the student must send all the necessary records for the evaluation of the case prior to the placement of the mini-implants.
– In case of mini-plate placement, the surgeon’s fees are included and he will place the mini-plates. The student will be the one who makes them and adapts them at the time of the intervention.
– In case of carrying out the protocol of MARPE + Invisalign of Dr. Mompell, Dr. Mompell will guide the student in all the process of making the aligners. The student will design the Clin-check, cement it and place the mini-implants.
