SOE: Dr. Kasper (1.25 CE) discusses Current and Future Applications of 3D Printing in Orthodontics in three parts.
Dr. Kasper earned a doctorate in bioengineering from Rice University and a bachelor of science degree in biomedical engineering (magna cum laude) from Case Western Reserve University. He served on the faculty of the Department of Bioengineering at Rice University for six years prior to transitioning to the Department of Orthodontics at The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston in July 2014.
Dr. Kasper’s research applies fundamentals of engineering, materials science, and the biosciences toward the development and evaluation of biomaterial-based technologies to meet clinical needs, with a particular focus on 3D printing and tissue regeneration. He has served as a principal investigator on a research project grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop an injectable mix of polymers and adult stem cells that can spur the growth of new cartilage in injured knees and other joints. He also served as a principal investigator of a project sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense to develop biomaterial-based approaches for craniofacial bone regeneration.
Learning objectives include: 1. Introduction to the digital workflow and 3D printing 2. Highlights of research exploring 3D printing applications in orthodontics 3. Discussion of challenges and opportunities in applying 3D printing in graduate orthodontic programs
