Introduction


Dr. J W "Skip" Truitt

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to become part of our continuing education program. I have been teaching Dentists Orthopaedics, Orthodontics and T.M.J. therapy for over 25 years and found these concepts invaluable for developing a modern day practice. The courses are designed for General Dental Practitioners to implement a practical and progmatic approach to your patients orthodontic needs.

Dr. Truitt received his B.S. degree from Texas Christian University and his D.D.S. degree from Baylor University. He has maintained a full time practice in Gainesville, Texas since 1967. Dr Truitt has co-authored four text books and published numerous papers worldwide.

“Without doubt, this is the most inspirational thought provoking and stimulating post graduate course I have ever attended and has influenced the course of my professional career”
Stewart Wright B.D.S.

“Dr Truitt is the single best teacher I have ever encountered. His formidably lucid, perfectly crafted lectures make you wonder why dental school was never like this. There is a deep satisfaction in applying his fully integrated approach to orthodontic correction, which insists on the value of protecting the T.M..J., enhancing facial aesthetics and improving function. Our patients deserve nothing less”.
