CARLSBAD, Calif.—From Sept. 19–21, Henry Schein Orthodontics hosted 200 dental practitioners and 40 dental practice members at the Sagittal First European Carriere Symposium at the W Hotel in Barcelona, Spain. Orthodontic industry professionals listened to informative lectures about the Sagittal First philosophy powered by the Carriere Motion 3D appliance and SLX aligners, and learned how to optimize practice efficiencies with progressive workflow systems. 

Dr. Luis Carrière explained how to treat the AP dimension and correct the bite from a Class II or Class III to a Class I occlusion. In addition, he revealed how this approach has grown his practice and strengthened his global presence within the orthodontic industry. European Carriere Symposium program chairman Dr. Dave Paquette, who is also Henry Schein Orthodontics’ lead clinical advisor, spoke in detail about passive self-ligation mechanics and the clinical evidence that supports their benefits. He also shared his new clinical protocol using the Carriere M-Series wire sequence, using a new wire and a three-wire protocol to shorten treatment time to 12 months.

Other speakers included Dr. John Graham who gave a lecture about the importance of differentiating the practice from the competition through total-patient care. Dr. Christy Fortney shared her expertise in progressive and efficient operations within her practice. She touched on topics such as improved workflow, the importance of staff communication, and how digital platforms have improved efficiency and productivity within her practice.

Henry Schein Orthodontics will host another European Carriere Congress in 2020 from September 24 to 26.
