HOUSTON, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OrthoAccel® Technologies, Inc. announces the launch of OrthoAccelLearning.com, an interactive learning portal dedicated to offering orthodontists the latest instruction and advancements in accelerated orthodontic treatment. The continuing education website gives orthodontists immediate access to a multimedia library with resources on clinical techniques and OrthoAccel products.
As the manufacturer of AcceleDent® Aura, the only FDA-cleared, Class II medical device that has been proven to accelerate orthodontic treatment up to 50 percent, OrthoAccel recognized the importance of developing a site that educates orthodontists on how to implement safe and clinically effective methods that accelerate orthodontic treatment.
"As OrthoAccel strives to advance accelerated orthodontics, we recognize that an integral component is providing continuing education opportunities for orthodontists and their staff," said Mike K. Lowe, CEO of OrthoAccel. "Consumer demand in orthodontics has shifted toward patients expecting faster treatments. OrthoAccel Learning will help orthodontists meet the demand by staying abreast of accelerated orthodontic treatment techniques."
Lowe adds that OrthoAccel Learning will also frequently host accredited webinars for orthodontists seeking continuing education (CE) credits. The first of these webinars, "Accelerating Orthodontics – Faster Tooth Movement with Pulsatile Forces," will be presented Friday, Nov. 22, 2013 at noon EST and facilitated by Dr. Straty Righellis who practices in Oakland, Calif. and serves as Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.
To register for the webinar, visit OrthoAccelLearning.com. Participants who complete the webinar and the subsequent exam will receive one CE credit accredited by the American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program.
