SureSmile Conference March 1-3 in Dallas

All Orthodontists and Staffs Interested in Digital Orthodontics Welcome


RICHARDSON, Texas, Feb. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Registration remains open for the 2012 SureSmile Conference set to take place at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, March 1- 3, 2012. Any orthodontist interested in learning more about digital technology and advanced treatment techniques is invited to attend. To register, go to   One of the features of this year's conference is the unveiling of SureSmile 6.0 - the latest version of SureSmile orthodontic technology. SureSmile 6.0 is the first orthodontic system to provide the unprecedented ability to plan treatment by positioning teeth and roots within supporting bone. 

-6.0 better for doctor "The one thing that any software needed to bring was how teeth roots move in bone.  It is at the crux of our profession, it's probably the most important thing in orthodontics, and there has never been a tool to properly assess that until now," said Dr. Manny Lamichane, Long Orthodontic Associates, Lancaster, Pa.

-6.0 better for patient "It's a lot more information, but it's a lot better for the patient in the long term because the teeth having the roots in the bone structure is making them more stable, over the lifetime of the patient", says Dr. Katie Graber, Graber Orthodontics, Chicago, IL.

-6.0 good for surgical cases "What's unique about SureSmile is for the first time we are able to integrate virtual orthodontics, virtual movement of the teeth, with virtual skeletal surgery. Now we have a pure marriage between skeletal reconstruction and the orthodontic movement of teeth," says Dr. Pravin Patel, craniofacial surgeon, Chicago, IL.

Other Conference topics and seminars include: Virtual Surgical Treatment Planning; Designing Esthetics with Digital Orthodontics; Lingual Protocols and Techniques; Treatment Planning and Adjunct Mechanics; Referral Marketing to the GP, Hygienist, and Patients.

The SureSmile conference will also feature an extensive clinical lecture by renowned orthodontic expert and Chief Clinical Officer of SureSmile, Dr. Rohit Sachdeva.  In addition, attendees can choose from more than a dozen lectures and panels delivered by SureSmile experts on biomechanics, wire design, esthetics, as well as emerging technologies including CBCT and lingual braces treatment.  There are also a variety of business topics to help orthodontic practices grow, expand and optimize their operations.
