i-CAT™, Hatfield, Pa, a brand of the KaVo Kerr Group, will exhibit at the upcoming American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) Annual Session in San Francisco, May 15 to 19, 2015. As part of the company’s “Their Story” campaign launched in November 2014, i-CAT will introduce the latest “Their Story” featuring Dr Sean Carlson and his patient, Natalie. This growing collection of stories illustrates how doctors are using i-CAT imaging to help better patients’ lives every day. In Natalie’s case of transmigratory impacted canines in the mandibular jaw, information from the i-CAT scan helped Carlson formulate a treatment that allowed Natalie to save her canines and thus retain her full complement of teeth.
Also at this meeting, the theme of saving canines will be taken to the next level as i-CAT partners with The Milo Foundation, an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter in Northern California. Its mission is to provide education, adoption services, and sanctuary for many types and ages of animals. John Fonseca, outreach coordinator for The Milo Foundation, will be at the booth on Saturday and Sunday, and attendees
can get their photos taken with some great little canines that will be on-site to promote pet care awareness.
Fonseca noted, “The Milo Foundation is excited to participate with i-CAT in the 2015 AAO Annual Session. As an animal rescue organization, the animals’ good health is extremely important, dental health included. This is an innovative opportunity for us to share information about our work and encourage support to help the many homeless animals not only in California, but throughout the country.”
Jessica Kachmar, marketing manager for i-CAT, added, “We are very happy to host Dr Carlson and Natalie and eager for clinicians to visit with them and discuss their inspiring story at our booth. The success of that treatment entailed much hard work and knowledge from Dr Carlson, effort and energy from Natalie, and quality 3D cone beam scans from i-CAT. We are also appreciative of the humanitarian work done for needy animals by The Milo Foundation, and i-CAT will be donating to this worthy cause.”
AAO attendees are encouraged to meet and greet with Dr Carlson and Natalie, take pictures with Milo Foundation dogs, and participate in other activities in the i-CAT booth (#2037).
