The 2010 Greater New York Dental Meeting featured speakers and clinicians discussing topics including orthodontic patient treatment, pediatrics, temporary anchorage devices (TADs), mechanics, and technology. The Orthodontic Specialty Program included a live TAD demonstration in a 300-seat arena on the show floor. The arena included large screens on either side of the stage as well as smaller screens scattered throughout the audience, so attendees were able to get an up-close view of Jay Bowman, DMD, MSD, as he placed and activated TADs in real time.

“Orthodontic Essentials for the General Practitioner: Learn It Today, Do It Tomorrow,” presented by Elliott Moskowitz, DDS, MSD, and Laurance Jerrold, DDS, JD, ABO (pictured), was a full-day workshop focusing on the practical use of various removable and fixed orthodontic appliances within a general or pediatric dental practice.

Moskowitz and Bowman presented an additional seminar on a selection of innovative anchorage applications and auxiliaries for various malocclusions. Attendees became acquainted with a multitude of multitasking options including mini-screws and the application of pure skeletal anchorage for molar distilization.

The Meeting once again partnered with Align Technology to offer the Invisalign Expo. During this 4-day array of educational courses, Invisalign specialists taught dental professionals the logistics of tooth alignment including treatment for Invisalign crowding cases and other orthodontic abnormalities.

The 2011 Meeting is sceduled for November 25 to November 30. For more information, e-mail the Greater New York Dental Meeting.
