A Leader in Education

TP Orthodontics has a rich history in orthodontic education. Since the 1950’s dentists and orthodontists from around the world have visited the company’s worldwide headquarters to learn about various orthodontic products and techniques. This tradition continues today as we offer evidence-based workshops, seminars and lectures throughout the year.
