In September 2018 we had the amazing chance to hold the Skeletal Anchorage Master Class, driven by true performers in their area of expertise. It was an academic, practical and clinical teaching for our participants who had the unique opportunity to see live, in office, the application of mini-implants, documentation of the case and direct bonding of fixed appliance.
