We have a special weekend planned with lots of new case finishing secrets to share with you. Each year, when planning the Annual Update Symposium, our focus is always Case Finishing. Our goal is to bring you information, products, material, and appliances that are current and relevant to case finishing. This year we will be presenting cases from each instructor with a focus on perfecting orthodontic mechanics. The slight nuances of a procedure can sometimes change the outcome of the entire case and we want you to understand and learn the precise details of the mechanics.
To fine tune and precisely detail orthodontic cases we must be willing to spend a little extra time, closely examine many minute details, and thoroughly understand the system of case finishing mechanics. We must discipline ourselves to have a vision of the 6 Keys to Optimal Occlusion and the components of a beautiful smile. Each of our instructors will detail their vision for case finishing and share their cases with the participants. This 2-day program will focus on basic and advanced mechanics, from beginning to finishing procedures, as well as using the proper tools, in the right sequence, to best resolve the issues most effectively.
While maintaining our core philosophy and mechanics, we will explore and expose developments in appliances, materials, and products as they pertain to some of our more advanced or complicated cases. Definite advantages and disadvantages have been encountered over the years and we will present these mechanics and define our guidelines for determining when one appliance may be indicated or preferred over another. This course is structured for the doctor that is currently utilizing the Straight Wire appliance, has a clear understanding of mechanics and desires an update in terms of current trends and techniques in orthodontics.
Go diving for pearls with our instructors as they share their tips in small groups. Do you have a particular task or procedure that you would like to see demonstrated? Bring your questions to the meeting and we will have demonstration clinics immediately following class on Friday and during the breaks. Meet with the four instructors in small groups as they share their pearls with you. This is an excellent opportunity to bring your cases that you would like some help or guidance with.
Yes, they were so popular last year that we are bringing them back again this year! During each break one of our instructors will be presenting a table clinic to a small group that will be relevant to our focus on case finishing. They each have great ideas and we are excited to share them with you!
We have asked each of our instructors to bring an exemplary case from their own practices to present at the meeting. We also invite each of our participants to bring a "best case" to present. Each student case presented will be evaluated by our judges, and one winner will be awarded the Robert Gerety Case of the Year. The winner will be presented with an engraved award as well as a lifetime membership to our website and 10 cases of brackets. What a great promotion it will be for you to show off this beautiful award in your office!
Please choose your case carefully and bring to class with you the following required hard copy records:
We are looking forward to you sharing your success story with us!
Our course will be held in Dallas, TX at the Marriott Quorum Addison on August 19-20, 2022 from 9:00am - 5:00pm
