"Stop Guessing!  Make Expansion the Most Predicable Part of Your Day!"

Platinum Sponsor: Dentsply/GAC

Dr. Tamburrino, originally from Pittsburgh and co-founder of the Center for Orthodontic Excellence, graduated from Duke University with a double major in biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering/materials science. He then attended the University of Pennsylvania for dental school as well as his specialty training in orthodontics. In addition to private practice, Dr. Tamburrino is on faculty as an attending clinician in the graduate orthodontic clinic at the University of Pennsylvania.  He also is on faculty and lectures internationally/nationally with the Complete Clinical Orthodontics (CCO) courses and is actively involved with several research projects focusing on orthodontic diagnosis and critical evaluation of results. Dr. Tamburrino lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia with his wife, 2 sons, and 2 cats, and needs very little motivation to get out on the golf course!

Course Description

Orthodontic diagnoses typically focus extensively on sagittal and vertical criteria, but often lack objectivity for the transverse dimension.   This presentation changes this traditional mindset and elevates the transverse to an equal importance. The information contained here will not be theoretical fluff.   The presentation is rooted in practical application for your office no matter what level of technology you have available. Every slide is critical and is geared to walk you step-by-step through the process and provide real-world application.    A large focus will be on relevant criteria that you can use on every patient whether they are a child or an adult. At the end of the day, you will have all the tools you need to easily determine and quantify both skeletal and dentoalveolar expansion needs, and, most importantly, be ready to put them into action the next morning. Defined protocols and expected outcomes using different expander types will also be revealed, so that expansion can be just as predictable in your hands as it is with mine!

Course Description

Course Description:

Simplify systems to focus on quality patient care.  This statement has become the goal for many orthodontic practices.  This is a good time for practices to look internally at their protocols, procedures and systems.  Developing smooth running, efficient, patient based systems will allow the practice to grow.

We will focus on developing a plan that will take your practice to the next level of orthodontic excellence.  The key is understanding the concept of a patient based practice and defining your message.  This session will help you and your team develop scripting, verbiage and guidelines to build your practice and convey your message to your patients.

Topics included:

Building a team that will deliver your message.  Having the right team members in the right position in your office will contribute to your practice growth.  The key is hiring the right employees and keeping them motivated to provide the highest quality care for your patients.

In this one day course we will discuss:

How to Communicate More Effectively

Communication is a vital component of any orthodontic practice.  Teams need to find ways to keep the communication channels open among team members without it being overbearing. 

Developing your “dream team” in a multigerational practice.

How to build the team of your dreams in a multigenerational practice.  We will discuss ways a team can create an environment where initiative is encouraged and appreciated by empowering employees and rewarding them for their efforts.

Reducing emergencies and finishing treatment on time.

A high number of emergency visits can make a critical impact on the total treatment time and meeting financial goals of a case. Reducing the number of emergency visits and patients beyond their estimated completion date is a team effort for an orthodontic office.

Clinical reports can provide valuable information on how efficient your clinic, assistants and treatments are.  These are key factors when looking at total practice numbers.  We will discuss which reports to run, how to evaluate the information, and ways to make changes to improve your clinical efficiency.

What’s new in sterilization and instrument reprocessing for today’s orthodontic offices.

Today’s orthodontic teams are challenged with having the time, knowledge and equipment to process instruments and achieve compliance with the CDC guidelines and sterilization protocols.   We will review the current Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings, 2003 as well as the recent update to these guidelines.   We will discuss tips and tricks to help make instrument reprocessing safe, fun, and effective for the orthodontic team!

As we get busy with our daily office activities, we need to make decisions that resolve complex situations with simple solutions. This lecture will present clinical pearls using different types of orthodontic biomechanics that are proven to be efficient in a busy orthodontic office. Also, it will be discussed on how to identify your practice strengths and how to transform them into important practice differentiators that your patients can easily identify.

Learning Objectives:

1. Attendees of this lecture will be able to identify practice strengths and transform them into practice differentiators.

2. Attendees of this lecture will be able to evaluate different tools that can help resolve complex case situations in a simple manner.

3. Attendees of this lecture will be able to define specific treatment goals for each case situation.
