Improved Patient Care through Lawsuit Protection and Prevention for Orthodontists
This course teaches proven and effective strategies to prevent and protect against lawsuits, allowing orthodontists the peace of mind necessary to focus on improved patient care. You will learn lawsuit protection strategies most advisors are unaware of.

1. Maintain focus on improved patient care rather than lawsuit defense.
2. Structure practice for lawsuit protection and prevention.
3. Implement legal structures that will reduce liability insurance costs.

Practical Practice Management:  "GPS" for Orthodontists and their Teams
Just as global positioning satellite systems help us navigate and stay on the best route to our destination; reliable practice management systems keep our orthodontic practices on the right track and away from situations that will impede our progress and impact our ability to provide the excellent patient care that defines our “brand”. This course will present practical methods for risk management in three areas of orthodontic practice management:

            Standardized Communication – The Eight Step Discipline
            Resource Management – Building Teams for Longevity
            Practice Transition – Goal Oriented Planning Protocols

Dr. Mart McClellan and Tim Streid*

Dispelling Financial Myths: How Do Orthodontists Know They Are on the Right Financial Path?
Since orthodontists are not trained in dental school on how to manage money, they make financial decisions throughout their career based on opinions and sales hype. This is the primary reason why less than five percent of orthodontists ever reach their maximum financial potential. In order to be in the top five percent, orthodontists must understand that every financial decision needs to be analyzed in an evidence-based way. Efficiency planning versus traditional planning will place the attendees in this elite group!  Macro Wealth Management will share this powerful information from an orthodontist's perspective and do it in an interactive format!!!

The Grey Zone:  Extending the Range of Healthy Orthodontic Tooth Movement
Orthodontic patients are evaluated for treatment using multiple parameters. Of particular importance is the determination of the skeletal bases and their relationship to the dentoalveolar complex. Between the dentoalveolar and skeletal patients lies the alveoloskeletal patients (grey zone patients) that may benefit by bone augmentation of the alveolar ridge to extend the range of healthy tooth movement. This periodontal procedure fortifies the facial alveolar ridge creating a wider girth for teeth to be moved and remain in bone. The presenter will distinguish the parameters limiting the orthodontic movements and reveal how to treat both Class III and Class II surgical (grey zone) cases without orthognathic surgery and retain a healthy periodontium.

Dealing with Vertical Control in Orthodontics
Orthodontics is dynamic and has been constantly changing especially in relation to technological advances, but old questions do persist “DEALING WITH VERTICAL CONTROL IN ORTHODONTICS” places a special focus on diagnosis, treatment options and mechanics but also it has to do with passion for excellence. This program compiles clinical orthodontics bridging old and new techniques. Our objective is to trigger a reflection on what we believe, do, and teach day in and day out.  We hope to be able to stir even more curiosity within each one and revisit ideas and concepts we execute as clinicians with special focus on vertical issues in both extremes, hypo- and hyperdivergence. Class II and Class III mechanics associated with vertical deviations will be thoroughly discussed.

Course objectives:

  • Review principles of orthodontic mechanics and discuss treatment protocols and alternatives.
  • Discuss controversies involving vertical control in hypo- and hyperdivergence.

+In lieu of a third ISO seminar, members are encouraged to attend the 2016 MSO Annual Session to be held November 4 - 5, 2016 in downtown Chicago.
