Five Star Ortho was proud to have Dr. Mark Musso speak at our CE event “Expansion and Airway: The When and How with Guided Support”.
Attendees learned about airway intervention techniques, different expansion appliance options, cephalometric analysis and how it relates to appliance and case selection, and even got to take a tour of the lab! We would like to thank Dr. Musso and all of the attendees for a great course!
Look for more courses coming soon at Five Star Ortho’s location in Denton, TX. Our next course will be featuring Dr. Piya Gandhi from Houston, TX on April 19-20, 2024. Her lecture is titled “Saving Our Future One Airway at a Time: Airway Interventions from Birth Through Age 6”.
Here at Five Star Orthodontics, we are not just committed to providing top-quality orthodontic supplies, but we are also dedicated to fostering the growth and development of orthodontic professionals. Our recent Continuing Education (CE) workshop, titled “Expansion and Airway: The When and How with Guided Support,” was an enriching experience for all attendees. We had the privilege of hosting Dr. Mark Musso, a prominent figure in the field of orthodontics, as our distinguished speaker.
The Workshop Experience
Our CE event was designed to equip attendees with the latest insights and techniques in airway intervention and orthodontic expansion. Here’s a glimpse of what our attendees had the opportunity to learn and explore:
1. Airway Intervention Techniques: The workshop delved into the critical aspect of airway intervention. Attendees gained knowledge on effective techniques to improve and support airway function, a fundamental element in orthodontics.
2. Expansion Appliance Options: The event provided an in-depth analysis of various expansion appliance options. Understanding the range of appliances available is essential for tailoring treatment plans to each patient’s unique needs.
3. Cephalometric Analysis and Case Selection: Cephalometric analysis is an integral part of orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. Attendees learned how to use cephalometric data to make informed decisions about appliance and case selection.
4. Lab Tour: As an added bonus, attendees had the unique opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour of our orthodontic lab. Witnessing the fabrication process of orthodontic appliances firsthand was an insightful experience.
We want to express our gratitude to Dr. Mark Musso for sharing his expertise and to all the attendees for making this workshop a resounding success. It’s through such collaborative efforts that we can continue to push the boundaries of orthodontic practice.
