Sun Valley Resort, Sun Valley, ID Friday, June 19, 2015, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm 21st Century OrthOdOntiC AnChOrAge And A tAd MOre Mohammad R. Razavi, DDS, MSD, FRCD(C) 6 CE D r. Razavi will review temporary anchorage devices (TADs) and their role in orthodontics. Absolute anchorage eliminates the effect of Newton's third law by preventing the undesired tooth movement seen in routinely used dental units. TADs do, Dr. Razavi however, require us to make alterations to routine orthodontic biomechanics. A review of these considerations will be presented, as well as tips for how to avoid the most common undesirable side effects. Ideal TAD location for improved efficiency and results will be outlined through the use of case presentations describing the treatment of anterior open bites and the improvement of Class II malocclusions. Dr. Mohammad Razavi is a certified orthodontic specialist in private practice in Kanata, Ontario, Canada. Prior to relocating to Ontario, he practiced orthodontics for five years in the Cleveland area, where he served as the orthodontist for the Cleveland Browns and on the Craniofacial Team at the Cleveland Clinic. A specialist in irregular tooth size and congenital absence of teeth, Dr. Razavi provides his patients with state-of-the-art orthodontic care in a fully digital office.

Watch for details coming soon. ORTHODONTIC ASSISTANT PERMIT (OAP) PROGRAM CAO continues to offer our exclusive OAP program to orthodontists interested in preparing staff members to take the final examination to receive a certification to perform an expanded scope of orthodontic assistant duties. CAO has been exploring new ways to deliver innovative training assistance to member offices that have purchased the program. CAO plans to expand the scope of training opportunities by offering the program to orthodontists who wish to provide a service to colleagues by training staff members who are not his/her own employees. CAO will also be offering the program to additional group/corporate practices with multiple locations and an orthodontist to oversee training at each location.

The session will be facilitated by AAO Executive Director Chris Vranas, who will lead the group in addressing critical issues in order to keep the association dynamic, vibrant, and poised to embrace the future.
