Effective, positive communication is the single biggest driver of success at work. New research in the fields of neuroscience and positive psychology is showing the incredible ripple effect positive communication can have on employee engagement, productivity, and happiness.
After spending years as a national CBS News anchor broadcasting to millions and receiving an advanced degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Positive Psychology, Michelle developed simple, yet proven techniques for positive communication that drive individual and team success for quantifiable results. She trains professionals on ways to inoculate their brain against stress and negativity, praise effectively, get others to adopt a more resilient mindset and shift the culture at work to create a talent-enhancing environment.
Aligners are quickly growing as a treatment modality because of their ability to make offices more efficient. Fixed appliances are still 70% of the average orthodontic practice. Digital, custom braces allow us to leverage the same efficient workflow aligners provide with even better control with a much lower lab expense.Speaker(s):
Join Dr. Idiculla for a journey to explore how you can look at your life in specific ways to help enhance today and tomorrow. Unlock what really drives you by being honest with yourself.
There is no doubt that the evolution and utilization of social media and electronic news media outlets have had a profound impact on the practice of orthodontics as consumers are being ‘educated’ through these sources. From direct-to-consumer/do-it-yourself orthodontics to magic potions to cure periodontal disease to new technologies for daily care, patients are bombarded with dental ‘health’ information that may in fact be harmful. This high-energy session will overview the ever-changing landscape and explore the top trending topics that impact clinical practice.
Are you feeling Security Fatigue yet? The latest hacks and security breaches are in the main stream news nearly constantly now. How is your practice supposed to defend itself when it seems the evils of the internet are winning the war? Do you just stick your head in the sand and use the logic that you haven’t been affected yet so you’re fine? Do you get overwhelmed not knowing what to do?
Join us as Trey Lawrence, AAO’s VP, General Counsel, discusses current advocacy efforts and priorities at the state and federal levels as well as the orthofacts.org resources available to members.Speaker(s):
Over the last year, ransomware attacks have been decimating the dental community and shutting down practices of all sizes for 10+ days. Over 75% of the time, ransomware attacks result in the theft of patient data and costs often exceed $200,000. If the ransom is not paid, all your patient information and images are auctioned for sale on the Dark Web. Cloud backups, firewalls and anti-virus software are not the answer... yet 90% of practices across the US are relying on this technology to protect their practices. Your firewall and anti-virus software will not stop data theft and/or most ransomware strains.
Orthopedic maxillary expansion in adults opens a variety of nonsurgical/nonextraction treatment options in severe dentofacial skeletal discrepancies. Due to the morphological complexity of the facial sutures, however, an evidence-based expansion strategy is crucial. Based on the understanding on micrstructure of human facial sutures and biomechanics of MARPE, a reasonagle expansion protocol will be presented. Supplementary questions such as maximum possible age for orthopedic correction and resolution in the failure cases will be demonstrated.
Orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning for the correction of skeletal discrepancies usually comprise particular challenges. Growth modification, dental camouflage and surgical correction of such discrepancies are the customary options to improve function and esthetics; however, dental compensations frequently present limitations in providing a complete correction and acceptable esthetic result. Camouflaging a skeletal discrepancy can be achieved if properly diagnosed and by establishing a realistic treatment plan.
Periodontally assisted osteogenic procedures pretend to utilize bone biology, physiologic turnover activity as well as basic orthodontic biomechanical principles in an attempt to correct some skeletal discrepancies while achieving satisfactory skeletal changes. By understanding bone physiology and the biology of tissue response during orthodontic tooth movement, orthodontists should be able to develop the proper mechanotherapy and the therapeutic procedures necessary to achieve the expected tooth position and bone architecture.
This lecture goes into detail and discusses case by case management of patients with complex cranio-facial and dentofacial problems. An evidence-based approach to the management of specific syndromes will be employed and participants will be given an overview of the state of the art techniques. In addition, it will incorporate many of the clinical patients that have been treated in a team based hospital setting.
