Hello, let me begin to say USDI is a phenomenal orthodontic course and it is also a great tool to build a great orthodontic practice for general dentist, like myself. I took this course approximately 4 years ago in Alexandria, Virginia, over a period of twelve months. There, I was presented with more-than-enough ortho knowledge to tackle the most common ortho cases. To help me begin with my cases, I had many great mentors to learn from. Each mentor had his own treatment philosophy, I learned what best from each of the mentors and combined those knowledge into my own. I had the privilege to absorb knowledge from two particular mentors, Dr. Ralph Garcia and Dr. Gary Hall. They held my hand and walked me through hundreds of cases until I had enough confidence to be on my own. Fast forward to this day, I have built enough cases that I even have help from an orthodontist to treat all cases for me. Thank you USDI for helping me.
