    Dr. Skip Truitt

    I would like to take the opportunity to invite you to become a part of our continuing education program. I have been teaching dentists Orthopedics, Orthodontics and TMJ Therapy for over 35 years and found these concepts invaluable for developing a modern day practice. The courses are designed to provide you with the latest information and techniques for Maxillo Facial Orthopedics, Orthodontics, and TMD Therapy. I will show you a very practical and pragmatic approach to treating your patients. Regardless of your level of expertise, you will gain valuable insight into the diagnosis and practical treatment of both dental and skeletal malocclusions as well as TMD Therapy. You can feel confident treating Open Bite Cases, Class III Cases, Mid-Arch & Terminal Arch Extraction Cases, Non-Extraction Cases, and patients with TMJ Dysfunction. If you have taken any of our courses in the past, you will be amazed at the new techniques & technology.

    Dr Truitt received his BS Degree from Texas Christian University and his DDS degree from Baylor University. He is a certified Senior Instructor for the IAO, the International Association of Orthodontics. Dr Truitt has co-authored four text books and published numerous papers worldwide.

    Dr. Carreon-Truitt graduated from the Universidad de Guadalajara, Mexico in 1985. Her practice has been limited exclusively to orthodontics since 2002 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

    In 2009 after 27 years in independant practice I was fortunate to have been introduced to Skip and Skip's courses. Since then I have done all six the courses and acquired the DVDs for reference. Having done the courses and having acquired Skip as a colleague/ friend has changed my life professionally and personally for the good in ways I cannot begin to describe. I believe I now have insight into dentistry which my university education could not give me and on a daily basis benefits me in all the disciplines including prevention, restorative, crown and bridge, reconstruction, esthetics, pedodontics, orthodontics, FJO, TMJ therapy and even surgery.
