Chris Bentson
How to Adapt to the Changing Orthodontic Market (Docs) Change is the only constant in life; however, business within your office continues as usual. Orthodontic practices must adapt to today’s fast-changing marketplace in order to thrive today, tomorrow, and plan for the future. Not only are consumers changing, but the orthodontic industry itself is also adjusting to many external forces. To stay successful, one must not only understand what is happening but recognize why change is occurring. This presentation will discuss the facts (based on orthodontic industry data) and focus on where the specialty has been, where it is today, and a view of where it is headed.

Rosemary Bray
Memorable First and Last Impressions (Staff) Being the first impression and the last impression of the practice is a critical responsibly for any team member. This talk will highlight the importance of this role, define the main objectives in wowing people and help the audience to understand why patients are happy or not happy with the practice and how you can diffuse and calm an upset patient, or create one! Patients who cannot get past the initial moments will never discover DR’s great clinical skills. Anyone who works near the front desk or is a DR or works chair side in the practice and has to have people skills that are far better than their technical skills. Why?
Rosemary Bray spent more than 30 years employed in the dental profession, both in clinical and administrative roles, with experience in general dentistry, periodontics and her last 17 years in Orthodontics – all in San Diego.

Yes, that was 50 years! She has lectured and worked on every continent except Antarctica (penguins must not care about teeth) and in all 50 of the United States, on behalf of the AAO, Orthodontic companies, numerous state and local dental societies, Ortho and dental study groups, in-office consulting and for her own workshops and seminars. She is the founder of the very popular annual Ortho Camp seminar on the beaches of Mexico which came to a terrific happy conclusion in Cancun after 12 successful years!

Laura Cafik-Martin
Food for Thought. The importance of Hospitality in the orthodontic practice (Staff) Why didn’t they book? Many Treatment Coordinators assume that a patient didn’t start because they simply didn’t want what they were offered – or they chose someone cheaper. The truth is… It’s NOT about the price. It’s NOT that they don’t want the treatment. It’s about the experience and understanding the patient’s wants and desires – and then showing them how you can get them to their goals as quickly and efficiently as possible while exceeding their expectations every step of the way. At this lecture, Laura welcomes you to the table as she shares her success stories and tips with you, with the intent you can help more potential patients SAY YES!

Louie Costa
Optimal Perioral Aesthetics’ for the “Maturing” Orthodontic Patient (Docs) The Leo Tolstoy quote still holds for the mature, aging orthodontic patient. “Nothing has such a decisive influence on one’s life as his or her appearance and not the appearance itself but the conviction of its attractiveness or unattractiveness”. Orthodontists are treating these more “mature” patients who expect a treatment plan sensitive to their overall aesthetic goals. There are no age related changes after forty that enhance appearance. To serve our patients best, we should be familiar with what these age related distractions are and the means to address them.
Louie Costa graduated from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, in 1974. He received his D.M.D. degree from the Medical University of South Carolina as first honor graduate and recipient of the “Golden Hands Award” in 1979.

Marianna Evans
Palatal expansion with skeletal anchorage: periodontal and airway rationale (Docs) The upper jaw carries a unique anatomic position as it separates nasal and oral cavities. Patients with maxillary deficiencies often present with compromised daytime and nighttime breathing due to anatomic upper airway constrictions and soft tissue obstructions. Current evidence suggests that maxillary expansion may promote respiratory function in many of these situations by opening nasal passages. Conventional tooth-supported palatal expanders can at times produce unfavorable periodontal outcomes. The introduction of the temporary skeletal anchorage into rapid maxillary expansion appliances eliminates orthopedic forces applied directly to the teeth. In doing so, orthodontists can avoid adverse periodontal effects, achieve required skeletal maxillary expansion in nongrowing patients without surgery and control skeletal and dental post-expansion movements in three dimensions. This course will assist clinicians to incorporate comprehensive three dimensional management of the maxillary hypoplasia and optimize Rapid Palatal Expansion with Temporary Anchorage Devices in their everyday practice.
Marianna Evans is a board-certified dual specialist in Orthodontics and Periodontics practicing in the greater Philadelphia area. She received her DMD degree and specialty training at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Evans frequently lectures on airway orthodontics, guided facial growth, interdisciplinary care and periodontal plastic surgery. She co-founded OrthoPerio Institute and recently developed 4D Morphotropic Orthodontics™ expansion protocol and periodontal health.

Kayla Hoorelbeke
Prep & Landing: Sales Steps Beyond the New Patient Exam (Staff) In the New Patient Process, it’s not all about reaching cruising altitude. Your “takeoff” leading up to the exam and the “descent” following the exam play just as much of a role in your sales success. Buckle up as we discuss what you can you do to gear up for an optimal New Patient Exam, how you can make an impact even after they’ve scheduled a start appointment, and which crewmembers play a role during these stages of the process. In this presentation, we will: Identify the pre-exam stages and post-exam stages of the selling process. Analyze the best way to handle new patient inquiries and intake to use them as ideal tools in your New Patient Exam. Learn the importance of the start appointment and treatment follow up in the sales process to promote future production.

Jim Janakievski
Tooth Autotransplantation can Help Solve Dilemmas in our Orthodontic Patients (Docs) Orthodontists are often faced with treatment planning dilemmas for patients presenting with complex impacted, congenitally missing, and traumatized teeth. Treatment options usually include extraction, space closure or space appropriation for a future dental implant. Tooth autotransplantation can provide additional options for these patients aimed at tooth preservation and ridge management.

Jeff Kozlowski
An Efficient Approach to Managing Impacted Canines (Blended) The management of impacted canines is one of the more mechanically challenging procedures the orthodontist faces on a regular basis. In this presentation Dr. Kozlowski will show you how to reduce your stress, streamline your clinical protocols and increase your efficiency when managing impacted canines. While clinical mechanics is the foundation of efficient eruption of impacted canines, it is often the surgical exposure technique that is the most important part of the equation. This presentation will cover numerous options for impacted canine management and will cover both the clinical orthodontic mechanics and the surgical considerations in varying impacted canine cases.
Jeff Kozlowski has a unique perspective on the importance of clinical efficiency in the business of orthodontics. With a background in Economics and Finance rather than Biology and Histology, numbers and systems prevail over osteoblasts and osteoclasts. While his experience in orthodontics is varied – opening a start-up – to running a large multi-location practice – to lecturing around the world – the one thing that has always been constant is the importance of achieving great clinical results with the least amount of effort.

Neal D. Kravitz
A Guide to People Management: Understanding Your Patients’ and Staffs’ Personality Types (Blended) The DiSC theory is popular classification system originating in the 1920’s that categorizes all individuals into four primary behavior types: D-Dominant; I-Influential; S-Steady; and C-Conscientious. The aim of the DiSC theory was to categorize people by their temperaments in order to improve interpersonal relationships. In other words, if we know how people will interact, we will know how to treat them. For the orthodontist, understanding DiSC will increase case closure, highlight which patients are challenging to treat, and aid in hiring the appropriate staff. Teaching DiSC is my absolute favorite subject, and I promise this will be one of the most important lectures you will hear all weekend.
Neal D. Kravitz, is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, member of the Edward Angle Society North Atlantic component, and Associate Editor for the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics.

Mazyar Moshiri
Biomechnical Tips for More Effective Clear Aligner Treatment (Blended) It’s “clear” that plastic aligners are here to stay. When using this appliance, our goals should be to achieve the same results and outcomes as fixed. However, when dealing with software decisions and projections versus actual clinical outcomes, there may be a disconnect with resultant finishes being less than desirable. This is no fault of the aligner, but perhaps rather a lack of appropriate feedback on the part of the treating orthodontist. Please join us as we review important, repeatable suggestions to improve your clear aligner outcomes and predictability.

Sonia Palleck
Solving the Patient Puzzle: Digital Orthodontics with Insignia (Docs) Every patient presents to us as a puzzle to be solved. Traditionally orthodontists have been taught to study the problem at length and imagine a solution in our minds. Standard appliances are applied which require us to work out the shortfalls of the system in the patient’s mouth, hoping to gain an acceptable result in an acceptable amount of time. Insignia allows us to change our focus and requires us to reverse our thought process. By developing a clear solution prior to initiating treatment and working with an appliance system that more closely approximates the goals of treatment for the patient, we can work more effectively and efficiently. Join Dr. Palleck as she demonstrates how using Insignia and starting with the end in mind unlocks the patient puzzle.

Christopher Riolo
Maximizing treatment aesthetics and efficiency in Orthodontic treatment (Staff) Digital orthodontics has led to a proliferation of custom appliances, including clear aligner systems and both custom lingual and buccal fixed appliances; and has facilitated the current disruption of the orthodontic marketplace due to the rise of the direct to patient care model. Fortunately, the same digital technology that is responsible for the current disruption also presents opportunities for orthodontists to improve the care we offer our patients by taking control of our workflow using “in-house” 3D printing. I will show examples of how “in-house” workflow can provide not only the most aesthetic orthodontic treatment but in many instances, also the most efficient treatment for many of our orthodontic patients. I will also illustrate how a custom lingual fixed appliance system can be fabricated “in-house” using 3D printing. This same technology could be extended to the fabrication of in-house custom buccal appliances.
Christopher Riolo received his DDS from the University of Michigan. He received his Specialty Certificate and MS in Orthodontics at the University of Detroit Mercy and subsequently completed a PhD in Epidemiology from the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan.
