CARLSBAD, Calif.—Henry Schein Orthodontics has announced that its Orthodontic Excellence and Technology Symposium will take place from Feb. 21–23, in San Diego, California, at the Hotel del Coronado Resort. 

The symposium will focus on the evidence-based Sagittal First Philosophy powered by the Carriere Motion 3D appliance, feature the latest tools and technologies to help operate a more efficient and productive orthodontic practice, and raise awareness about solutions that can help make a total-health difference in patients’ lives. The symposium will also showcase clinical results that the new SLX Clear Aligner Systems can deliver, feature world-renowned speakers presenting innovative concepts to help diagnose and establish treatment plans, and explore strategies with industry leaders that can increase clinical efficiency and help deliver optimal results for patients.

New this year will be the opportunity to attend a pre-symposium workshop. Attendees may choose to register for one of three, four-hour workshops that will take place on the afternoon of Thursday, February 21.

The program chairman will be Henry Schein Orthodontics’ lead clinical advisor, Dr. Dave Paquette, and the keynote speaker, will be Dr. Luis Carrière. Carrière will focus on evidence-based clinical solutions for the treatment of complex Class II and Class III cases. 

“Innovations in our profession are ranging from equipment and material to treatment concepts that positively impact every aspect of how we achieve consistent clinical excellence while enhancing the patient experience,” said Carrière. “Therefore, it is crucial to be open to new concepts, participate in regular training, and exchange knowledge and best practices with experts. With simple, bonded biomimetic devices, such as Motion 3D appliances, together with the Sagittal First Philosophy—a new treatment paradigm that enables a doctor to correct Class I occlusion at the beginning of treatment—orthodontists can reposition the mandible, expand the airway and balance the relationship between the nose, upper and lower lips, and chin, for facial harmony—either for Class II or Class III cases. This results in a noninvasive approach to facial balance that greatly reduces extractions and surgery and thus the need of interdisciplinary therapy for the good of patients. I am convinced that orthodontists play a critical role in improving the lives of patients.”

Paquette and Carrière will be supported by featured speakers, Drs. John Graham, and Jep Paschal.

Additional speakers, with more speakers to be announced, include: 

• Dr. Ana-María Cantor
• Dr. Sean Carlson
• Dr. Lou Chmura
• Dr. Mario Chorak
• Dr. Christy Fortney
• Dr. Scott Frey
• Dr. Glenn Krieger 
• Dr. Bruce McFarlane
• Dr. Mike Ragan
• Dr. Thomas Shipley
• Dr. Norihide Tsubura
• Rosemary Bray

At the symposium’s exhibition area, a broad spectrum of the latest innovations and new clinical solutions will be showcased, focusing on the integrated processes of the digital workflow, including intraoral scanning, CBCT imaging, clinical orthodontic planning and 3D printing. In addition, several networking occasions will be available to allow orthodontists the opportunity to share their experiences with other peer professionals from around the world.
