THE ORTHODONTICS SYMPOSIUM
State–of–the–Art Computer Technology
for the Dental and Orthodontic Practice
The theme of this event will be digital technology, including the latest information on intraoral scanning and computer technology in today’s Orthodontic and Dental environment. It will provide answers to many questions and to the love/hate relationship we all have with our computers.
Current State of Three-Dimensional (3D)
Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
Intra and extra-oral 3D structure images obtained by scanning have facilitated model visualization for diagnostic purposes, laboratory transfer processes, elimination of cast breakage, cast reproduction and manipulation, facial treatment simulation, and reclamation of storage space. It also encounters the demand of multiple-doctor practices, multiple practice locations, and patient volume growth. This course will present the most current concepts of 3D imaging acquisition and discuss its application in the diagnosis and treatment plan applied to orthodontics and other dental specialties.
- Demonstrate knowledge on different intraoral scanning techniques and devices.
- Learn how specific technology features impact buying decision.
- Recognize efficiency, accuracy, consistency, and predictability of treatment outcomes using 3D technology.

Cool and Scary Things about
Computer Technology and Your Practice
Computer Technology is pervasive in the modern Orthodontic Practice. Your computers, wi-fi and the Internet enable not only your traditional applications, but also an ever expanding (bewildering) array of Cloud based services. But what makes sense for your practice?
During this session I will share with you my experiences from other Practices. We’ll cover an assortment of topics that may include:
- Ransomware – how hackers encrypt your data.
- Protecting yourself from internal attacks – who needs hackers when we have a disgruntled employee?
- Simple steps towards security – a collection of easy to implement tactics that help protect your practice from hacks and help you with HIPAA.
- Safe surfing – personal surfing by staff is the primary cause of spyware getting into your computers. What can we do about it?
- Internet backup – is it time to add this to your backup strategy?
- Cool technology tips & tricks to help you make the most of what you already have.
- How $100 can make your existing PC faster than ever.
- “The Cloud” – what is it and why would you care?
- Buying guide – advice on how to get just what you need while avoiding getting ripped off buying that next computer for your home or Practice.
- … and more.
If you use a computer at home or the practice, there will be something in this lecture for you. I promise to limit the geek speak and discuss the issues in terms that we can all understand. I encourage you to bring your experiences, questions and concerns to discuss.
- To be able to evaluate if Cloud-based services are a good fit for your practice.
