Dr Geoffrey Hall
Dr Geoffrey Hall completed his dental training at the University of Melbourne in 1983, and then pursued his postgraduate orthodontic training at the University of Pennsylvania in 1990. While he had mixed results with his undergraduate dental education, he found his passion in orthodontics, coming first in his class at the University of Pennsylvania.
That passion led him to open his successful practice at South Caulfield in Melbourne, where he specialised iin adult and children treatments including early treatment, conventional adolescent therapy, short-term orthodontics (Smilefast) and cosmetic treatment options including lingual braces, Invisalign and other aligner systems, and a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary treatment, including orthognathic surgical cases. . Over 28 years in practice and 10,000 orthodontic cases later, he has now dedicated himself to being the leading orthodontic educator for General Dentists, through The OrthoED Institute.
Having developed the short term cosmetic orthodontic treatment called Smilefast, (with over 500 dentists having completed their training in Australia) the success is based around the unique digital indirect bonding system, the comprehensive theory, formulated from sound orthodontic principles and pre-course material. Add in the online support and Smilefast has developed into a profitable revenue stream for many of the dentists, who have embraced orthodontics into their practice.
Dr Hall developed the OrthoEd Institute programme to give General Dentists the skills and confidence to treat basic to complex cases, and also to provide the GP with a solid foundation of knowledge that can be applied to any orthodontic treatment modality including aligner therapy . The GP will be totally confident in treating simple, moderate and even more challenging cases, and these will be done with precision, detail and efficiency. A delighted patient, a new referral and income source and increased satisfaction in your dental practice from a profitable orthodontic treatment process will result. Each module is specifically designed to offer progressive training through orthodontics, While the tools the GP learn at The OrthoED institute not only help the general dentist tackle more difficult cases, the focus extends to making the mild and moderate cases, simpler to understand, much easier to treat and be able to finish and detail the case better, reduce chair time, and ultimately becoming a more profitable practice.
