The quality of an orthodontist’s treatment results is determined by the quality of the landmarks and referents used for diagnosing far more than the appliance. The Six Elements Orthodontic Philosophy begins by learning the landmarks and referents for each of the six areas for which orthodontists have diagnostic responsibility. It was the discovery of those landmarks and referents that allow treatment results to be uniquely correct for each person regardless of race or gender. Six Elements™ landmarks and referents are also essential for orthodontics to have a positionally-accurate classification system.
