CHRISTIAN COACHMAN, the influential founder of Digital Smile Design, now has a podcast, Coffee Break With Coachman, in which he sits down with noted dental figures. He recently spoke with Dr. Maurice Salama, an Atlanta periodontist and orthodontist who helped launch the Orthodontic Online Fellowship training program in concert with Align Technology and DentalXP. Among the highlights:
Coachman: I recently gave the first live lecture to the Orthodontic Online Fellowship. About 7,000 people watched online. The Fellowship is this new project that you’re heading. Explain what it is.
Salama: It’s very exciting—the whole world, obviously, is getting more involved in orthodontics and esthetics. We had an opportunity to create this online program that will integrate some of the technology advances, from preteen to early-treatment orthodontics all the way to pre-prosthetic and adult orthodontics.
Coachman: It’s an in-depth program: 10 sessions, and then you go do Invisalign training as well. It’s very comprehensive.
Salama: Yes—and one thing digital [technology] allows us to do is that people can take the didactic portion [of the course] at their own pace.
