Ormco Corp, Orange, Calif, has opened registration for its 13th Annual Damon® Forum. The clinical, educational and practice-building conference featuring more than 30 interactive sessions for clinicians, treatment coordinators, front office staff, and chairside assistants will take place January 15 to 18, 2014, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix. The conference, attended annually by more than 1,000 orthodontic professionals, offers practices an opportunity to learn new treatment modalities, progressive technologies, and practice-differentiation strategies alongside fellow peers and well-respected industry speakers and educators.

Workshop topics include “The Efficiencies of Passive Self-Ligation Mechanics,” “Phase 1–Early Treatment,” and “New Techniques in Addressing TMJ.” Dwight Damon, DDS; Stuart Frost, DDS; John Graham, DDS, MD; Hisham Badawi, DDS, MSc, PhD; Steve Tracey, DDS MS; Jeff Kozlowski, DDS, and more are among the speakers facilitating the workshops. Additionally, new this year, Ormco is offering an optional pre-forum Insignia BootCamp to help practices get digitally equipped.

In addition to educational components, the Damon Forum hosts a variety of social and team-building activities including a golf tournament, 5K run, and happy hour with exhibitors. Also returning this year is the Smile for a Lifetime Foundation charity event. The Ormco co-sponsored, non-profit organization provides free quality orthodontic care to individuals with financial challenges and special orthodontic needs and last year raised more than $100,000 at the Damon Forum.
