Orthodontics is no longer in its own bubble and how you can take advantage of it!

Location: Online

Until the last decade, orthodontics has been perceived as an endeavor wrapped in the inscrutability of cephalometric x-rays and all those measurements! This will NOT be that lecture! Dentistry has undergone a digital transformation from aligners to custom fixed appliances. While there has been a sea change in how we treat patients, what has not changed is why we treat patients. This means diagnosis comes first, followed by the treatment methodology.

The orthodontic profession must change in stride with all the changes that have occurred in dentistry and remain in lockstep with how dentists plan their cases. The interaction of the two is very important for excellent collaborative care, and this presentation will address contemporary smile design coupled with facial characteristics to “fit the smile into the face.” This presentation will be designed to elevate your good results to great results.

Learning Objectives
1. Learn how orthodontic concepts have embraced concepts from cosmetic dentistry
2. Learn how the checklist system leads to thorough diagnosis of functional and esthetic issues
3. Learn principles of Macro-Micro and Miniesthetics and how it applies to your practice.
