Chung How Kau, BDS, MScD, MBA, PhD, MOrth, FDS, FFD, FAMS, Cert, will discus accelerated orthodontics in his presentation titled, “Will it Change with Faster Effective Orthodontics Treatment? A Discussion on Biotechnology.”
Kau is chairman and professor in the Department of Orthodontics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is noted as a world leader in 3D and translation research, including advanced imaging and software modeling techniques for orthodontic and skeletal treatment planning. Kau’s research interests also include the biology of orthodontic tooth movement, with the goal of reducing treatment timelines.
The second presentation hosted by Biolux will focus on photobiomodulation in clinical orthodontic practice. The lecture will be presented by Timothy G. Shaughnessy, DDS, MS. Shaughnessy has lectured throughout North America and Europe on “Comprehensive Orthodontics.”
Shaughnessy is an American Board of Orthodontics-certified orthodontist, a director of the Atlanta Orthodontic Study Group, and a consulting orthodontist for Biolux Research. He studied orthodontics at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry, and has more than 25 years of private practice experience.
“We are honored to work with the high caliber of investigators, researchers, and clinicians expanding awareness of photobiomodulation in the world of orthodontics,” states Peter Brawn DDS, founder and chief scientific officer of Biolux Research. “The research is showing a very significant effect in terms of accelerating tooth movement without any statistical difference in root desorption and safety issues that are normally associated with accelerated orthodontic treatment.”
