17.1. The course participant of the seminar series “www.csorthoschool.com” undertakes to conscientiously follow the course plan and to complete the training. The more orthodontic cases are started in the course participant’s own practice, the higher the implementation of the knowledge gained in the seminars is.
17.2. The seminar series “www.csorthoschool.com” provides the course participant with the knowledge presented in the curriculum using a theoretical approach and practical training to reach the training objective.

– all tooth and profile photos from the beginning and, if possible, the photos showing the progress of the treatment.
– photos of the first model plus progression models, teleradiography and panoramic x-rays, if any (the cephalometric x-rays do not have to be traced).
