Dr Retrouvey has developed an expertise in e-learning and is portrayed in the Adobe website. Another interest is the proper training of general dentists in the field of Orthodontics.
Our first project was the development of an interactive CD to teach Orthodontic Diagnosis. The the Virtual Orthodontic Case Study was created quickly followed by a dental site based on a wiki to help all dental students learn and master specific dental techniques:
wikisites- Dentalpedia ( Feel free to visit and ask for editing rights and make this site as good as possible). This site and demands from dentists in developing countries led to the creation of IFDE International Foundation for Dental Education . The mission of this educational site is to encourage experts in dentistry to contribute and participate to the educational process of dentists or dental students of less fortunate countries experiencing difficulties. Training better teachers will make better practitioners for the benefit of all.
Creation of IFDE
He founded IFDE in 2010 to interest dental faculty members in quality Continuing Education in Dentistry
IFDE will be based on simple to implement multimedia developments to create a "blended learning" community and open the walls of recognized universities to dentists not having the opportunity to attend these great institutions.
We have also added a site entirely dedicated to the orthodontic diagnosis process. Please visit www.dentalpedia.ca and comment
One of the way, Dr Retrouvey is able to get in touch with developing countries is through his implication as a volunteer teacher for Health Volunteer Overseas
