Dr Derek Mahony (Australia) is an orthodontic specialist practising in Sydney. He lectures on the wide-ranging benefits of orthodontic treatment, including from a practice management point of view, his philosophy combining fixed and functional appliances; his group of course graduates includes thousands of doctors from all over the world. Dr. Mahony approaches orthodontic diagnosis from a facial profile perspective, taking as his goal not only straight teeth, but facial beauty and proper temporomandibular joint health. Over the past decade, he has been seeing about 250 patients per week. He currently has over 3,000 patients under his care, and lectures as one of the keynote speakers at meetings of the International Orthodontic Summit, the International Association for Orthodontics, and the American Association of Functional Orthodontics. He is considered by some to be the successor to the current top lecturers in the field of orthodontics specializing in the combination of functional and fixed appliances. Dr. Mahony's presentations provide a stimulating, accessible, step-by-step resource for practitioners seeking to improve treatment outcomes.


The program consists of 4 modules of 3 days each. Two days of lecture classes always led by Dr. Derek Mahony and on the third day clinical classes - live presentations (online streaming) from four continents with patients. The lectures will take place in Warsaw, while the clinical presentations will be live streamed online on a fixed date with access for all participants from any location and device.  The entire program is expanded in its new format to include an additional clinical day with personal participation in one of four selected dental practices in Poland. An additional clinical day in a dental practice setting will be held in groups in four regions of Poland (north, south, east, west). Due to this, the number of participants in the program remains unchanged and closes at 64 people.

The program, in its new format that includes an additional day of clinical classes scheduled in the second year of study, has been certified by the City of London Dental School and the University of Bolton, UK.
