Realising the potential of the whole dental team

We are committed to inter-professional learning and team based patient care. Our two centres, Devon Square Orthodontics and Leamington Spa Orthodontics, have fully empowered their entire orthodontic team. By identifying committed individuals at every level within the team - who we have then trained, educated and developed - we have created a team of highly skilled, highly knowledgeable individuals who apply situational leadership, to ensure that patient care, well being and management is optimised.

Education Specialists

We do what we teach, so we know it works. Exceptional standards of training result in a highly experienced, specialist led team, ensuring the patient orthodontic treatment journey and quality of care is outstanding. We educate and assess many other orthodontic teams to comprehensively improve skill sets. We have been recognised as leaders in the provision of Orthodontic care and as a result, frequently deliver seminars and lectures about Orthodontics both in the UK and overseas and have articles published in refereed scientific journals and orthodontic magazines. Due to our ongoing educational exposure we are constantly integrating the newest and best products in Orthodontics into our practice and using the latest Orthodontic therapeutic techniques.

Accessible and Flexible Learning

We have designed our courses to be accessible and flexible. Our MSc in Orthodontics and Diploma in Orthodontic Therapy, delivered in conjunction with the University of Warwick, are innovative, part-time programmes which are lecture-based in terms of delivery. The Award and Certificates in Orthodontic Nursing are designed as ideal preparation for dental nurses wanting a career in orthodontics and are delivered as e-learning or blended learning courses, so wherever you are based in the world, you are able to access high-quality education and courses with the flexibility of studying whenever suits you best!

Our Qualifications

We choose qualifications and awarding bodies who we believe provide contemporary assessments and qualifications which fit well with dentistry today. Initially, Orthodontic Team Training (OTT) delivered courses, which prepared students for NEBDN, BDA and ILM qualifications. In 2013 Richard and Liz decided they wanted the freedom to design and build qualifications that are innovative and contemporary, which expand the style of assessments available to widen the learners choices and, most importantly, realise the potential of learners, their teams and their practices and in turn enhance the profession. From this Dental Team Qualifications (DTQ) was born, a new and innovative awarding body, specialising in the development of qualified dental nurses, preparing them to meet the demands of contemporary practice.

Clinical Skill Set

We won’t just provide you with the knowledge and understanding, we will teach you how to apply it in everyday clinical practice

Our Values

We believe in the value of every member of the dental team. Our research into interprofessional education and development of the dental team is recognised worldwide and underpins our continuing development of our courses and qualifications. Our international lecturing and examining commitments is a recognition of our knowledge and expertise.

Experience Expertise Excellence

In 2005 two very successful and established Specialist Orthodontists decided to create an education and training company whose aim was to develop the dental team. These two innovative individuals knew that dental nurse registration was approaching and felt strongly that patient care needed to delivered by the whole team, not just dentists and orthodontists. Dr. Richard Cure and Dr. Liz Hopkins were both leading successful Specialist Orthodontic practices and were already involved in educating dental nurses and dentists.

During more than 30 years in Orthodontics, Rich and Liz have gained vast experience in all modes of treatment and different orthodontic appliance systems. Their expertise has led to regular lecturing, examining and research appointments in the UK and abroad, including North America, Scandinavia, Africa, the Middle East and Far East. They continue to publish papers in scientific journals, contribute to The Oxford Dictionary of Dentistry, and currently are writing a textbook on Orthodontics.
