C"LOUD" and CLEAR!

May 2, 2020 9:30am ‐ May 2, 2020 10:35am

The past decade in Orthodontics has made some very "emphatic statements", which will chart the course of how orthodontics is practiced, marketed, researched and taught over the next decade and probably the rest of this century! This presentation will discuss the technological kaleidoscope from an evidence-based perspective, as influencing the specialty of orthodontics. The application of cloud-based services to clinical care and their futuristic possibilities will be analyzed. Core Data/Outcome Sets (CD/OS) of tech-infusion research in orthodontics will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify seminal literature on technological developments and their impact on the specialty.
  • Analyze "what we know" about technological infusions in the last decade,"what we don't" and bridge the gap between the two.
  • Evaluate, with clinical examples and research findings, how and where technology can enhance patient care outcomes; and where it can't!

Is Virtual Our New Reality? Virtual Orthodontic Visits Before, During, and After a Global Pandemic

May 2, 2020 9:30am ‐ May 2, 2020 10:35am

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Never have Ferris Bueller’s immortal words resonated more with Orthodontists than today. Take this lecture for example. I was scheduled to give a talk at the AAO Annual Session in Atlanta entitled “Virtual Orthodontic Consults: A Novel Approach to Engage Patients Who May Otherwise Choose Direct to Consumer Options”. My plan was to dive deep into virtual orthodontic consults as a tool for quality orthodontic offices to provide potential patients with the convenient options they are requesting, and possibly engage these patients before they choose direct to consumer treatment — a marketing concept that has been working successfully in my practice for quite some time. However, an unprecedented global pandemic just changed everything. We have been forced to develop a complete virtual treatment platform to ensure that we can continue to manage our patients’ treatment during mandated closure of our physical office. We made the decision to be virtually open to serve our patients even though our offices are physically closed. And serendipitously, my team and I have learned a lot about the potential for virtual visits to enhance (not replace) our in-office patient experience to help us deliver quality orthodontic care in an effective, efficient, and convenient manner — a mindset change which we would likely have never explored pre-pandemic. I look forward to sharing ideas, workflows, scripts, successes, failures, and strategic plans with all of you!

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the concept of virtual orthodontic consultations as a tool for quality orthodontic offices to provide the convenience that some patients are craving in order to engage them before they choose direct to consumer options (Pre-Pandemic Mindset)
  • Explain in detail our Virtual Treatment Platform that was developed in order to manage our patients’ treatment during mandated closure of our physical office (Pandemic Mindset)
  • Explore what this forced workflow change has taught us about the perceptions and logistics of virtual visits, and how we plan to utilize them to improve our practice when this mess is over (Post-Pandemic Mindset)
