Description

Cfast stands for Cosmetically Focused Adult Straight Teeth, and this program will designate, upon completion, that the clinician is a Certified Cfast Provider.  Cfast is a quick, effective, affordable and aesthetic way to address mis-alignment of teeth in the patient’s smile zone, cuspid-to-cuspid.  Treatment is done considerably faster than traditional comprehensive orthodontics since it is only the anterior teeth that are moved.  Cfast is not a replacement for comprehensive orthodontic treatment, but often allows us to conservatively address our patients’ aesthetic wants.  Cfast can also be a profit center for your practice as it is very easy to learn and implement.

  3. The clinician will be able to communicate realistic expectations to their patients.
  4. The clinician will be able to communicate with the laboratory to properly set-up the case.

  6. The clinician will understand the clinical techniques and skills necessary to remove the orthodontic appliances and select the proper form of post-orthodontic retention.
