Smile TRU Advanced Seminar

Completing this course will give you the knowledge and skills to allow you to pre-treat your SmileTRU cases by developing the arch with appliances such as the A.L.F. or RN-Sagittal. An introduction to a truly revolutionary appliance system designed to correct malocclusions, function and clinical abnormalities





Presented by Dr. J.W. Skip Truitt B.S. D.D.S.




The SmileTRU Advanced seminar will educate the doctor on how to pre-treat cases for arch development with appliances such as the A.L.F or RN_Sagitaal By utilising these low profile fine wire appliances, you can acheive better results in a shorter timescale as well as saving money on your laboratory fees.

Many patients can start with SmileTRU clear aligners and obtain a excellent treatment result. Some patients however may require a pre-treatment with other appliances that are also not seen such as the A.L.F or RN-Sagittal. This course will cover the fitting and activation of both appliances. 

Triple O can provide a case analysis and Cephalometric tracing to determine if pre-treating would be an option, or a necessity, for the successful aesthetic and functional outcome of the treatment.

When a doctor and their staff complete the one day course they will be able to correctly diagnose and recommend a treatment plan that is best suited for the patient. In addition the doctor will be placed on the SmileTRU international refferal system for patients seeking treatment in their area.

Technical support is constantly available from Triple O Dental Laboratories- Doctors trained in the use of the SmileTRU system will also be happy to assist you on a case by case basis.

The A.L.F appliance is not limited to pre-treating SmileTRU cases as can be seen below.


A new treatment concept for the correction of :

  • T.M.J. Pain Misaligned Teeth and Jaws
  • Chronic Headaches and Facial Pain
  • Neck and Low Back pain
  • Sleep Disorders, sleep apnea and snoring

The A.L.F. appliance was originated and designed by Dr. Darick Nordstrom of Hollister, California in the early 1980’s. Dr Nordstrom recognised the need to provide more than just an aesthetic alignment of the teeth, he saw the need to correct the other structures that were attached to the teeth: upper jaw and skull and bones. He soon discovered that by correcting these other components patients noted relief and disappearance of chronic headaches, neck, shoulder and lower pack pains. Since discovering the A.L.F. appliance, Dr Nordstrom has dedicated his professional career to perfecting the A.L.F.’s design and treatment approach.

Benefits of the A.L.F. Appliance:

  • Aesthetics and comfort
  • Less frequent adjustments and surgery visits
  • Unhampered speech
  • Reduced tooth soreness during tooth movement
  • Quicker results since appliances are constantly worn
  • Easy to clean


Attending this seminar provides 7 hours Continuing Professional Development and complies with the GDC’s educational criteria for verifiable CP



What previous delegates have to say:

The course was fantastic! It has given me the confidence to take on more orthodontic cases.
Skip is an exceptionally knowledgeable teacher with the ability to make even the most complex subjects accessible for the general practioner!

Dr Katy Baldwin


I recently attended this course offering training in the higher levels of the Smile Tru system of orthodontic aligner treatment. The course was delivered by Dr. Skipp Truitt. To say the course was eye opening would be a massive understatement. I learnt so much that I thought I already knew but as the day went on realised I didn’t know. The venue, the course content, the vast knowledge and excellent delivery style of Dr. Truitt made this one of the best courses I have ever attended in 38 years since graduation.

Dr Timothy Holt


Amazing course and I cannot stop recommending it to people. Skip can make a very complicated topic sound so simple. I have always found TMJD difficult to understand, but after the advanced course, I feel I have a much better understanding of it. I have always been interested in orthodontics and his course has enabled me to offer cosmetic orthodontic treatment to my patients with confidence knowing there is support available just a phone call away. The laboratory being based in the UK makes the process much quicker and cheaper.
