SPEAKERS AND TOPICS:

HOW MANY ROADS MUST A MAN WALK DOWN? FROM BLEEKER TO BROADWAY AND BEYOND

Dr. Neal Kravitz - Diplomate, American Board of Orthodontics, Private Practices in Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry, Northern VA.

50 years ago in NYC’s Greenwich Village, transformative musician Bob Dylan sang of ethics and moral responsibility in a volatile world. As the world changed, so did our profession. Brands and brackets made way for removable aligners, stone models for digital scans, private practice for DSO’s. This fun, high-octane lecture will focus on building your elite orthodontic office. Master patient rapport, efficient Phase I treatment, Class 2 correction and retention, by incorporating new technologies. You’ll understand patient personalities, learn marketing, insurance and retention strategies to compete with DSO’s, and discover outside-the-box techniques for efficient Phase I treatment.

ORTHODONTICS EDUCATION: THEN AND NOW

Dr. Thomas Cangialosi - Professor & Chair, Department of Orthodontics, Rutgers University School of Dental Medicine

Changes have taken place in Orthodontics practice and particularly in orthodontic education over the past 42 years. This talk will discuss the importance of board certification, both for the individual and the profession, explain changes in teaching methodologies, and review the necessity of faculty preparation for effective teaching and faculty development and advancement. The functions and workings of CODA and the admissions MATCH program will be reviewed. You’ll learn what’s needed to succeed and advance in the profession, as a resident, academic or private practitioner.

ACCELERATION OF ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT: FACTS VS. ALTERNATIVE FACTS

Dr. Ravindra Nanda - UConn Alumni Endowed Chair, Professor and Head, Department of Craniofacial Sciences; Chair, Division of Orthodontics, University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine

Numerous methods and technologies have been proposed and investigated in the field of Orthodontics, and often investigative studies do not corroborate the claims of commercial enterprises. Faculty and residents at UConn have been investigating the role of biomechanics, orthodontic wires, TADs, mechanical vibratory devices and the role of corticision and piezocision in accelerating orthodontic tooth movement. Results of ongoing clinical studies (piezocision, salivary markers and pulsating forces, and status of oral flora with invisalign aligners) will be discussed. Clinical studies will be reviewed, and you’ll learn about the current evidence related to acceleration of orthodontic treatment, and understand which methods of acceleration have potential and which may not. 

 

The meeting is sponsored by the Orthodontic Alumni Society & Columbia University College of Dental Medicine.
