Why Learning Orthodontics Can Help You Stand Out From The Rising Competition as a General Dentist

As a newly graduated dentist, you have embarked on an exciting and rewarding career. However, you’re not alone.

General dentists are under attack.

New practices are popping up on every street corner, undercutting older dentists, stealing their patients and using savvy marketing tactics to leave the rest of us lurking in the shadows.

How will your general practice stand out?

Australia is graduating approximately 1,200 new dentists each year, but only 550 dentists are retiring in the same period.

Learning orthodontics within the first 5 years after graduation gives you a distinct advantage over the competition:

  • A wider range of services all “under one roof”

  • Less likely to refer patients to other orthodontists 

  • The ability to stand out from the fierce competition

  • Happier patients who aren’t referred from pillar to post for ortho treatments

  • More referrals and bookings

  • Wider variety of cases and a more interesting career

Sadly, orthodontics is often poorly taught in post-graduate courses and through private companies.

This causes further confusion and overwhelm new graduate dentists who have little real-world experience to lean on. Without learning sound orthodontic principles and techniques, many graduate dentists struggle to understand the true relationship between the teeth and jaws or the most effective and efficient ways to correct common orthodontic issues. Orthodontics is a $200 million and growing industry in Australia. With our help, you’ll develop the skills you need to tap into this exciting side of dentistry.

With hands-on support, in-depth training and a plethora of resources, you can too.

Dr Hall provides sound principles, challenges myths and simplifies orthodontics, giving you total confidence to put what you’ve learnt into practice. In fact, 70% of students are billing significant amounts shortly after commencing the program.

Is this right for you?


It’s really all about the teacher, and that’s Geoff Hall, and I believe that he stands above the other orthodontic education delivery systems out there. Very informative, very usable in a sense. You would leave with new information, and something else that you could apply directly to the patients that you’re seeing now. Since I started the course 18 months ago, I would have on average one ortho case a week, with approximate case value of six to eight thousand per case.
- Dr David Lee
I have done numerous other orthodontic courses - I thought I understood orthodontics. I learnt more in two days with Geoff Hall than I did in two years with other teachers. He constantly challenges the myths that have been created and makes one fully understand the principles so I can evaluate and treat all cases now without unwanted side effects arising in treatment. His vast experience and knowledge and passion to teach makes this a supreme program. Thank you Geoff and Robyn for bringing this to Australia and changing my clinical life.
- Dr SM, Perth
Since starting the course, I’ve started probably about five very comprehensive orthodontic cases, which I would have previously referred off, which is worth around $40,000
- Greg Thomas
Since I started OrthoED, I've commenced about 50 cases, and each case has been worth on average about $7,000. So that's the production of $350,000
- George Gibson
