As with many things in life, when you stop learning and start coasting, you can easily fall behind the times. That's why we are committed to lifelong learning and consistently bettering ourselves and our ability to bring you top-notch care - the fastest, easiest, and most comfortable orthodontic treatment.
You may wonder how much there is to learn in orthodontics. Aren't teeth pretty much always going to be the same? Well, yes, the teeth stay the same, but the way we move them and our ability to provide a great treatment experience keep getting better. One of the ways we stay up to date and continue to improve is by attending continuing education courses. The Annual Session hosted by the American Association of Orthodontists is one such opportunity where educators, vendors, and colleagues come together to exchange ideas and information.
This past weekend Dr. Liz attended the Annual Session in Washington D.C. She came home with lots of new ideas for delivering great care the way that you want it! One of the major themes at the Annual Session this year was clear aligner treatment. As patients' interest in clear aligners increases, more and more companies are offering diverse options in products, and more educators and sharing valuable tips and tricks for making aligner therapy more effective than ever before.
As specialists in orthodontists, we are proud to be able to bring you all of these options. Each has its own strengths in terms of flexibility, cost, and customization, and we believe that we are in a unique position to help you navigate the right clear aligner treatment for you.
Of course, that's not all the Annual Session was about! As usual, a whole host of concepts were discussed from surgical treatment to 3-D imaging for better diagnosis and treatment set-ups to improvements in clinical efficiency. Over the course of the next year, we're excited to begin passing on these valuable pearls to our patients, and then once again, we hope to return to step up our game again next year!
