Learning & Reflection

Learning and reflection is an essential activity for orthodontists and should be an integral part of all aspects of treatment delivery, as it aids the development of professionalism by facilitating lifelong learning and can reduce diagnostic errors. Reflective thinking can help to process emotions, improve mood, prevent burnout, and improve the patient’s care. The reflection is not developed spontaneously and therefore is an essential part of personal development. Let’s join the author together to practice your skills in diagnosis, management, and treatment.
