Aesthetic dentistry expert to lecture at BOS conference
Aesthetic dentistry expert, David Sarver, will present new data on the changes in a person’s smile over their lifetime, at the British Orthodontic Society’s British Orthodontic Conference in September.
Dr Sarver, a pioneer of smile design, is the developer of Orthotrac software and has lectured and written about the role of the orthodontist in managing the treatment of all aspects of a patient’s facial appearance.
He is a fellow of the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry and was a presenter at its 2017 quadrennial meeting.
He has been published numerous times on the subjects of smile design and orthodontics, with his research focusing on the computerisation of treatment planning and prediction-digital algorithmic imaging, orthognathic surgical techniques, and 3D facial mapping.
At the British Orthodontic Conference, which takes place 27-29 September 2018 at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London, Dr Sarver will participate in an interdisciplinary session – an opportunity to showcase his clinical procedures as well as his working relationship with colleagues.
In his view, interdisciplinary goes beyond dentistry, it’s a multi-medical and dental approach incorporating plastic surgery too.
‘I will present new, concise data on how the smile changes over the decades and how that data has significant influence over our decision making’, Dr Sarver explained.
‘The expansion of our knowledge in interdisciplinary treatment opens avenues for enhancement of our orthodontic treatment outcomes.
‘I will present new concepts of smile design that will challenge you to open you mind to fascinating possibilities.’
Simon Littlewood, a British Orthodontic Society member and a consultant at St Luke’s Hospital, Bradford, heard Dr Sarver speak at the American Association of Orthodontics earlier this year.
‘I have always enjoyed David Sarver’s lectures, so whenever I see his name on the programme, I will always make sure I am there to hear it’, he commented.
‘David presented at the recent AAO in Washington, talking about how he uses new digital technology to help in predicting outcomes and discussing what may be possible with his patients.
‘His lecture provided an inspiring approach to communications with patients, using the evolving technologies that are available to us, and as always he presented in his own inimitable and entertaining style.’
