This course focuses on the treatment of Class II malocclusions requiring an intra-arch and inter-arch management. Inter-arch considerations include growth and development, and management of the vertical, horizontal, and lateral skeletal and dental patterns. The efficient management of the intra-arch treatment, the proper and esthetic placement of the upper and lower dentitions in three planes of space within the facial complex is explained in detail.

The concepts of diagnosis and treatment planning of Class III cases will be presented based on soft tissue, dental and skeletal parameters. Case presentations will then be evaluated relative to early treatment, full-banded non-surgical treatment, and surgical treatment. Early treatment will focus on the use of Class III elastics, facemasks, and skeletal plates. Full-banded non-surgical treatment will discuss important issues such as anterior dental compensation, non-extraction treatment and extraction options, vertical and A-P relationships, the pubertal growth spurt and family history, and growth prediction based on the ratio of horizontal projection of A point relative to B point. The limits of non-surgical treatment will also be discussed.

Graduated in 1980 as a general dentist from the University of Leuven, Belgium. In 1986 he started his private orthodontic office in Belgium and in 1997 in Heinsberg,Germany. From 2003 to 2010 he led an orthodontic office in Maastricht, the Netherlands. In 2010 he opened a brand new orthodontic office in Echt, the Netherlands. This office is considered a state of the art orthodontic office, including progressive concepts about service and efficiency using the latest digital developments. Dr. Sampermans is an affiliate member of the Angle Society in Southern California (USA) and has taught orthodontic treatment philosophy and orthodontic practice management both inside and outside of Europe for 15 years. He also offers micro-seminars in his office on self-ligating brackets, indirect bonding, computer related 3D technology, and modern practice management. Since 2003, he has been a speaker at 30 orthodontic congresses. He has first-class knowledge and extensive experiences with pre-adjusted appliance systems (Andrews, Roth, MBT, Roncone). He has worked with active self-ligating bracket systems since 2003, finishing over 5000 cases with this system. Dr. Sampermans is a guest lecturer at the post-graduate program at the University of Regensburg, Germany and lecturer at the ZAFI-Institut in Vienna.
