Internationally acclaimed for his pioneering research and clinical techniques on TADs, Dr. Jason B. Cope is also widely known for being a perfectionist, not only on his orthodontic cases, but for everything he does.
Dr. Cope’s was a pioneer in the development of Temporary Anchorage Devices focusing on the development of clinical protocols and products to enhance MiniScrew Implant (MSI) use. He began using TADs in 1999. After several years of use, he partnered with IMTEC Corp in Ardmore, Oklahoma, in 2003, to develop the Ortho Implant, the first US manufactured orthodontic MSI.
He coined the term Temporary Anchorage Devices and developed the nomenclature system used by most orthodontists today to describe the various different types of TADs. He developed the Cope Placement Protocol™, the first minimally invasive protocol that utilized drill-free MSI placement with topical anesthetic only.
He also developed a patented life-like triple-density typodont for teaching MSI placement methods. Other protocols and products he developed include the biomechanically-oriented MSI-based palatal protocol for openbite closure, the patented openbite closing transplatal arch, the biomechanically-oriented MSI-based molar protraction protocol, the concept of temporarily replacing missing permanent lateral incisors in growing kids with MSIs, as well as the patented locking closed coil spring for TADs.
During this course, Dr. Cope will show you everything he knows and recommends about TAD treatment mechanics. He'll show you how to set up your mechanics in a simple and practical way. He'll also show you how to streamline your workflow using TADS in the most seamless manner possible so you can achieve consistent results.
