Virtual Insanity! Two-part session: Virtual Orthodontic Visits Before, During, and After a Global Pandemic & Bridging the Knowledge Gap

Dec 3, 2020 7:30pm ‐ Dec 3, 2020 8:45pm

Join Dr. Dan Bills for this Complimentary Business of Orthodontics webinar, Virtual Insanity! Virtual Orthodontic Visits Before, During, and After a Global Pandemic — As with many practices, Dr. Dan Bills was forced to develop a complete virtual treatment platform to continue to manage patients’ treatment during mandated closure during the pandemic. Serendipitously, Dr. Bills and his team learned a lot about the potential for virtual visits to enhance (not replace) the in-office patient experience to help deliver quality orthodontic care in an effective, efficient, and convenient manner — a mindset change which wouldn't have been explored pre-pandemic.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the concept of virtual orthodontic consultations as a tool for quality orthodontic offices to provide the convenience that some patients are craving. (Pre-Pandemic Mindset)
  • Explain in detail a Virtual Treatment Platform that was developed in order to manage patients’ treatment during mandated closure (Pandemic Mindset)
  • Explore what this forced workflow change has taught us about the perceptions and logistics of virtual visits, and how we have successfully utilized them to improve our practice now that we are back in the office treating patients (Post-Pandemic Mindset)

Immediately following Dr. Bills, Teledentistry Legislation expert Amber Lovatos will discuss Bridging the Knowledge Gap and Navigating Teledentistry Policy. Amber will walk you through the considerations for participating in teledentistry; state practice acts, billing, insurance reimbursement, legislation, codes, HIPAA, technology, licensure, barriers, and other consideration.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to dissect your specific state dental practice act for possible limiting verbiage to telecommunication in dentistry.
  • Learn to identify barriers to teledentistry and how-to address
    them.
  • Develop teledentistry opportunities while remaining compliant with your state’s practice act.

A Digital Approach to Orthognathic Surgery

Feb 23, 2021 7:30pm ‐ Feb 23, 2021 8:45pm

Dr. Neil Warshawsky (1.25 CE) discusses how not everything learned during the pandemic was bad. Listen and learn how technology has helped us to refine our digital workflow for orthognathic cases while keeping our patients safer than ever before.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn what is meant by a “digital workflow” and understand what it will take to establish it in your office. This program will look at what it takes to go digital, and we will discuss the pros and cons of being paperless. Our discussion will compare equipment and services, listing out the pros as well as the cons of these items. By the end of the program, the participant will be able to do a fair assessment of their own practice to see what is practical to immediately add, vs waiting a few years to purchase.
  • Understand what key milestones are required to safely approve your patient for orthognathic surgery. Recording keeping will be discussed, and we will specifically look at conebeam and 3D printing to help understand how they help to treat cases more efficient and accurately.
  • A variety of orthognathic cases will be demonstrated to show that it does not matter what appliance system you use in your office. Presurgical objectives are universal regardless of your treatment philosophy.
