Orthodontics in Summary brings you a concise summary from key webinars, conferences and articles, as well as interviews from experts in orthodontics.

Orthodontics in Summary began on the 3rd of May 2020. With the simple aim of connecting the orthodontic community to ideas, concepts and knowledge from different outlets and resources.

The story of Orthodontics in Summary began with myself (Farooq Ahmed) listening to some incredible webinars in orthodontics, presented through social media and other platforms. I would make notes in order to increase my own knowledge and understanding. I would describe my notes to colleagues and share references. One colleague suggested making the summary available to others, and that is how it all began!

There have been 55,000 hits / downloads across platforms in the first 5 months.
