Basic Concept

For orthodontic treatment to be carried through to a successful conclusion, it is necessary for dentists, dental hygienists and dental nurses to share a common core of knowledge which will enable the clinical team to function effectively. It is desirable, for example, that every member of the team has some knowledge of abstract concepts such as craniofacial growth and development and psycho-social aspects of orthodontic treatment.
The depth of this knowledge needed will, of course, vary depending on responsibilities of each member of the team. In addition, each member of the team will need to be familiar with a vast amount of clinical and technical knowledge which is specific to their own role in order for them to be able to deal with the problems which they will have to deal with everyday in the clinic.
We have developed this computer-assisted learning software for use by dental hygienists, dental nurses and by dentists who are in charge of the training or direction of paraclinicals. Indeed for all those who are interested in mastering a technique or improving their clinical knowledge and skills in orthodontics but who have not found what they require in a conventional type of textbook. The idea and design of this interactive multimedia software arose out of the authors' teaching experiences in the United Kingdom, Canada and Japan and through their clinical careers as practicing orthodontists.
We were very aware of the key roles played by a fully trained dental nurse, dental hygienist and dental chair side. Our clinical work has also made us very appreciative of the valuable part played by the general practitioner who has a good knowledge of orthodontics. Referrals from these colleagues are always a pleasure to receive because they have usually been able to explain in broad outline both the patient's orthodontic needs and the likely nature of the treatment which will be needed for its correction.
