AAO member, Dr. Flavio Uribe and AAOMS member, Dr. David Shafer will co-present, Current Applications and Approaches to the Surgery First Technique (1.25 CE) on Oct. 19 at 7:30 pm central standard time.  

The surgery first approach started to gain interest in both the surgical and orthodontic communities approximately 10 years ago. Since then, the technique has evolved and been applied to almost every type of dentofacial deformity. Additionally, the orthodontic appliances have also changed to currently involve clear aligners as an option. This lecture will describe the current applications and approaches used in this technique with the pertinent sequencing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how the application of the surgery first approach to patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
  • Understand the use and rationale of surgery-first for the aesthetic minded patient
  • Describe the planning, sequence and scheme of integrating clear aligners with surgery first in orthognathic surgery.
