Private Practice vs. DSO… A Transparent Opinion of Both!

May 4, 2019 2:10pm ‐ May 4, 2019 3:10pm

Experience the journey through Private Practice into a DSO and learn what has been the most rewarding and also most challenging. Have a transparent look into the life of two orthodontists who have experienced both! Come along for the ride, as we walk you through our journey from orthodontic resident, to building very healthy multi-location private practices, to becoming part of a DSO (Smile Doctors). Our goal is to address these two paths candidly as well as entertain questions from both orthodontic residents and practicing orthodontists.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain perspective of the opportunities involved in both private practice and becoming part of a DSO.
  • Recognize the pros and cons associated with each path from two orthodontists who have experienced both.
  • Determine which avenue of practicing orthodontics suits you best as an individual.

Risk Management for the Orthodontic Team

May 4, 2019 2:10pm ‐ May 4, 2019 3:10pm

This program, sponsored by the AAO Insurance Company (RRG), will discuss the development of malpractice claims from the activity performed by the orthodontic staff. From communication, to patient records, to performing clinical procedures, staff is involved with patients and treatment. Staff can cause and/or prevent malpractice claims against the orthodontist. Attend this program to learn about current claims and how to prevent them. Elizabeth Franklin, claims manager, and Jessica Kaesberg, claims representative for AAOIC will summarize real malpractice claims that have been impacted by orthodontic staff. They will discuss staff behavior and practice activity that can minimize or preclude the development of a claim. There will be a Q&A session to discuss questions about the program material or any office problems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine which staff practice activities frequently result in or complicate the defense of malpractice claims.
  • Develop effective administrative and communication techniques to facilitate patient satisfaction, and prevent claims.
  • Recognize signs of potentially difficult patients or parents early to consider declining their treatment.

Inside-Out: Lingual Orthodontics and the Challenges of 'Hidden' Treatment

May 4, 2019 2:10pm ‐ May 4, 2019 3:10pm

Orthodontic technology continues to evolve to offer patients ever more esthetic options for completing their orthodontic treatment. Many providers may come to feel like we are caught in an "arms race" with our patients' esthetic demands escalating with every new technology that we offer to keep their treatment hidden from the world. These treatment modalities share some important similarities, and this patient population is unique. I will review some of the mechanical challenges of lingual orthodontics and some of the patient psychology that can make lingual orthodontics particularly challenging for providers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the unique challenges of a pre-programmed and customized (lingual) appliance for the delivery of orthodotnic force.
  • Recognize the importance of esthetic orthodontics and the psychological factors that drive patients toward lingual orthodontic treatment.
  • Distinguish which challenges in your lingual orthodotnic patients' treaqtments are related to appliances and which challenges are related to this unique patient psychology.

Bridging the Generation Gap: Communication for All Ages

Bridging the Generation Gap: Communication for All Ages

May 4, 2019 2:10pm ‐ May 4, 2019 3:10pm

When I was your age... is a centuries old statement that we've all heard and made fun of when we were the younger generation. But if this is the extent of the conversation then both older and newer generations miss the opportunities available when neither stops to listen and absorb the truths each has to offer the other. No matter which side of the gap you look out onto, there are lessons to learn and to teach and ultimately contribute to the happiness and growth of all.

Learning Objectives:

  • Turn the generation gap into a bridge for the future.
  • Learn to be "bi-lingual" in communicating with other generations.
  • Enhance your ability to train and coach younger team members while learning to grow your practice.

Preadolescent Orthodontics: When, Why and How

Preadolescent Orthodontics: When, Why and How

May 4, 2019 2:10pm ‐ May 4, 2019 2:40pm

The timing of treatment for different malocclusions remains a controversial clinical issue despite the considerable volume of literature on this topic over the past years. Clinical decisions such as the optimal time to start treatment are inevitably difficult, especially in preadolescents, because of the variability between patients, the uncertainty about growth, risk of trauma, psychological needs and treatment response. The purpose of my presentation will be to show when, why and how preadolescence orthodontics should be performed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify orthodontic problems that can and should be treated prematurely.
  • Evaluate how these malocclusions can affect a child’s quality of life.
  • Recognize the possible effective and efficient orthodontic solutions in preadolescent orthodontics.

“Temporary” Replacement of Missing Maxillary Lateral Incisors with Orthodontic Miniscrew Implants in Growing Patients: Rationale, Clinical Technique and Results

May 4, 2019 2:45pm ‐ May 4, 2019 3:15pm

Congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors are not an uncommon finding among the population. When these are discovered in growing adolescent patients desiring orthodontic treatment, two primary treatment options are available – canine substitution or dental implant restorations. Both are viable options. The problem with dental implants in growing adolescents is that they do not continue to erupt with the dentition and become submerged relative to the dentition, resulting in esthetic consequences.

Dr. Cope will introduce the concept of placing a miniscrew implant as a temporary replacement for a missing maxillary lateral incisor that he first treatment planned on a patient in 2003. Since then, he has further developed and refined the technique. The presentation will include the historical development, rationale, clinical protocol, and long-term results of temporary replacement of lateral incisors with miniscrew implants, as well as comparison with other treatment options.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the limitations of placing dental implants in growing adolescents.
  • Appreciate the difference between dental implants and miniscrew implants.
  • Comprehend the rationale of placing miniscrew implants temporarily to replace maxillary lateral incisors in growing children.

Practical Early Treatment: A Case-Based Review

May 4, 2019 2:45pm ‐ May 4, 2019 3:45pm

Early treatment decisions impact comprehensive treatment outcomes. Our purpose is to provide principles, based upon best-evidence and our clinical experience, for making early treatment decisions. Topics include managing early crowding, ectopic eruption of teeth, Class II treatment, Class III treatment, deep bites, open bites, and posterior cross bites.

Learning Objectives:

  • Apply general early treatment principles in your practice.
  • Apply guidelines to manage early crowding and ectopic eruptions.
  • Apply guidelines to manage excessive anterior overjet, skeletal Class II relationships, psuedo Class III relationships, anterior cross bites, skeletal Class III relationships, deep bites, open bites, and posterior cross bites.

Vertically Speaking!

May 4, 2019 3:20pm ‐ May 4, 2019 3:50pm

Control of the vertical dimension is critical if successful malocclusion correction is to be accomplished. This all important component must start with leveling and be consistently monitored until appliance removal. Various challenges that can adversely impact control of vertical dimension which can be encountered during the correction of routine malocclusions will be outlined.

Learning Objectives:

  • Treatment plan so that vertical dimension control is possible.
  • Understand the relationship between a malocclusion correction force system and vertical dimension control.
  • Appreciate the relationship between facial balance and harmony and vertical control.
