Speaker Topics

Friday, April 22 - Dr. Rick Roblee

The Next Generation of Interdisciplinary Dentofacial
Therapy (IDT): Digitally-Empowered with an Airway Focus

Interdisciplinary Dentistry has been an elusive concept since popularized in the 1980s, that few teams have truly been able to achieve due to the complexities of effectively collaborating highly specialized knowledge and techniques among disparate providers. Comprehensive philosophies, like “Interdisciplinary Dentofacial Therapy” or IDT, first developed almost 30 years ago, have helped overcome many of the challenges. Since then, many exciting and game-changing advancements have allowed interdisciplinary therapy to evolve radically. Today, dental teams are more closely partnering with their counterparts in medicine through an airway focus to improve further the quality and even the quantity of their patient’s lives. Individual team members are becoming digitally empowered with enhanced diagnosis, treatment planning, patient education, as well as more efficient and effective interdisciplinary collaboration. This presentation will focus on the thirty-five-year evolution of a time-proven interdisciplinary approach and look at the even more promising Next Generation of IDT.

Saturday, April 23 - Dr. Randy Newby

Orthopedics in Adult and Children Patients

In this presentation Dr. Newby will discuss common orthopedic procedures used on both growing patients (adolescents) and non-growing patients (adults). Orthopedic procedures in growing patients generally focus on transforming Class II dental and skeletal platforms to Class I. This improves dental inter arch alignment, facial balance and serves as a deterrent against possible future TM problems. Orthopedic procedures in non-growing patients often help to resolve TM problems and secondarily improve the dental inter arch alignment. Developing proper skeletal vertical dimension in normal, clockwise, and counterclockwise growers will be discussed.
