Tom Hartridge - qualified as a specialist orthodontist having completed specialist orthodontic programme at Bristol University in 2002. He is the partner of 2 specialist orthodontic practices and Southsea and Waterlooville and works with a team including 3 specialist orthodontists and 3 orthodontic therapists.


General dental practitioners and Dental hygienists have a critical role in monitoring the dental development of children and can identify patients who would benefit from orthodontic treatment or benefit from input from a specialist orthodontist.
This course aims to explain the role of a dental care practitioner in the orthodontic care of their patients.
I would encourage participants to bring along any cases they would like to discuss, any radiographs, photos or study models of cases would be helpful to discuss cases more fully.
