Orthodontic clinical assistants are very skilled at performing the treatment procedures that their orthodontist currently uses but they often times do not completely understand the science and reasoning behind any give procedure. In today’s busy offices, with assistants of varying experience, it is hard to keep track of who knows what and often time assistants are hesitant to ask questions about something they are expected to know because they do it on a daily basis. This lecture will discuss the area of orthodontics where Biology and Technology meet. Everything from levels of force, Andrews 7 keys, skeletal change vs dental movement, and a host of other concepts basic to “why orthodontists do what they do” will be covered.
This presentation will present an overview on ideal orthodontic photography. It will provide tips and tricks for extra and intraoral photographs for quality diagnostic records. A description of “what the orthodontist is looking for” will be also explained.
We all know the terms "informed consent," "informed refusal," "standard of care" but what do these terms really mean to us in our day-to-day practice? Each term is precisely defined in our state dental practice act, civil code, or by the outcomes in a malpractice trial. We ignore these definitions at our own peril. In this presentation we will explore how these terms are applied in our practices and how to take steps to insure that we are always in a safe harbor of compliance.

A Respiratory Protection Plan is a written plan required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Respiratory Protection Standard (29 CFR 1910.134). The plan must include safety measures implemented to protect the orthodontic team from risk of COVID19 infection and other airborne infectious diseases at work.
Just like your written, customized Infection Control Plan and Hazard Plan, the Respiratory Plan identifies the risk, outlines policies, and communicates protective measure for Low, Medium and High Risk employees.
Jackie Dorst will provide a comprehensive guide and template for COVID19 Respiratory Protection Plan.
