Early recognition and intervention of the sleep disorder diagnosis could result in a remarkable improvement in systemic health. In particular for cardiovascular and cerebral vascular disease because of their correlation with the ongoing process of obstructive breathing during sleep. Early diagnosis of the collapsibility of a patient’s airway may prevent the escalation of this disturbance into OSA. Changes in the upper airway, particularly the maxillary and mandibular anatomy and position, effect airway mechanics and sleep quality. As we embrace the responsibility of early diagnosis and intervention with SDB the orthodontist’s impact in our overall health care system can be acknowledged.
The highly infectious Coronavirus has created panic and fear globally. Jackie Dorst reviews current information on COVID-19 and the CDC and OSHA Guidance for safe care. Attendees will learn most recent safety precautions for the orthodontic team and orthodontic patients as practices re-opened after the Coronavirus closure. Learn the Coronavirus Facts and prevent Coronavirus Fear in your ortho practice and community.

The intent of this lecture is to help the practitioner develop insight into the importance of looking at the anatomy in all three planes of space. Cases will be shown to demonstrate what may be missed without this technology.
This lecture will focus on how successful orthodontists can grow their practices, involve their team members, stay competitive in today’s environment, and thrive in the decade ahead. We’ll dive into the changes expected and how practice profits will be generated versus historical models. The necessity of a well-defined strategy, technology deployment, clinical modality choices, and practice modality options will be discussed. These tidbits of knowledge can be used by doctors and team members to better define opportunities to decrease stress and grow in the decade ahead!

This is a prospective clinical study aiming to evaluate canine substitution supported by temporary anchorage device (TAD) as a viable treatment for patients with maxillary lateral incisor agenesis (MLIA) and skeletal Class I or Class III. Conventionally, restorative replacement used to be the gold standard to treat those cases; not anymore! The importance of the interdisciplinary teamwork will be highlighted with this novel treatment protocol and through clinical cases.
In this presentation, Jackie will discuss the components necessary to analyze the patient financial and accounting health of your practice. With your practice management software, your CPA, and some third-party statistical services, it’s easy to assume your accounting procedures are accurate and your financial figures are relevant. However, there are nuances within your practice management software that must be analyzed from an accounting perspective so you can ensure accuracy in figures and practice patient accounting procedures, which will lead to more accurate management decisions for your practice. Additionally, we’ll review typical cash flow maximization strategies for a practice and how those need to be altered during this transitional time in our economy.
