In 2014 Dr Zieg established the Practical Orthodontics Academy of Mentorship (POAM) ­— an advanced orthodontic teaching program for general dentists with the main purpose to equip practitioners in more remote areas where patients do not have ready access to specialist orthodontic services.  A number of general dentists have since successfully been mentored. As a result of the growing interest, Dr Zieg developed an online program which is now available to selected candidates.

This program is intensive and interactive resulting in limited

positions for mentees partaking simultaneously. New candidates

must have a thorough understanding of fixed appliance therapy

and will only be admitted once current mentees

complete the program.

 

All aspects of advanced orthodontics are covered using detailed, self explanatory keynote and video presentations as well as step-by-step guidance through sharing radiographic images and clinical photographs of current mentee patients via email.

 

The duration of the complete program is twelve months. Regional mentees are welcome to occasionally attend either the Stellenbosch, or Johannesburg branches of Concelo Invisible Braces for a full day of one-on-one personal teaching.

“The idea behind Tip-Edge PLUS is light years ahead of

any other straight wire bracket system -

It is the BEST KEPT SECRET in orthodontics”

POAM

MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

 

The cost of the POAM program

is US $9800. Payable in equal monthly installments over the twelve month period. Mentees who are not entirely satisfied, are entitled to withdraw

from the program at any stage.

 

The Mentor may, at his discretion, prematurely terminate a Mentee’s program if insufficient progress is being made. Any fees paid in

advance will be refunded.

 

“Round wire is the best choice for almost all tooth movements,in spite of the bad name it has

achieved over the years because of its inability to produce torque within the slot.”

 

~ Thomas Mulligan ~

 

Over the past 15 years Dr Zieg has found this watershed statement to be profoundly true when using the PLUS system. The result is much simplified treatment mechanics, shorter treatment times and far fewer unwanted side effects using ultra-light forces only.

“I have used many different brackets and techniques from straight wire to active passive self-ligation. Now I only use Tip-Edge PLUS. After more than 15 000 cases, I have no doubt that it is a superior bracket.”

 

~ Dr Arturo Vela-Hernandez ~

DR ZJ WEBER

Dr Zieg  has been in full-time practice as a specialist orthodontist for more than 30 years.

 

He has a keen interest in teaching clinical orthodontics and has developed an innovative, unique way of using a lingual approach in the upper arch. He has delivered papers and presented courses in the field both locally and internationally on numerous occasions.

I Dr Zieg J Weber B. D.S. MSc Dent M Dent (Orth) as mentor for Professional Orthodontics Academy of Mentorship (POAM) hereby completely absolve myself of any direct or indirect responsibility resulting in incorrect, unsuccessful or failed orthodontic treatment carried out by mentees of the POAM program on their own patients.

 

As professionally trained clinicians they accept total responsibility for all their patients and the treatment results obtained. The POAM program is purely of an advisory and guiding nature to assist clinicians in improving their overall skill level in managing orthodontic patients in their own practices.

POAM PLUS

MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

 

POAM also offers an advanced program for clinicians who have already completed their post graduate studies in the field of orthodontics... The POAM PLUS Mentorship Program for Specialist Orthodontists.

 

The cost of the POAM PLUS program will be reduced to US
$6 800 as there will be no need to teach all the basic subjects covered during the post graduate training.
