HERODONTICS: Heroic or Stupid? Round 2

A light hearted look at orthodontic cases many dentists get involved in, heroically trying to resolve difficult orthodontic problems. Often motivated by altruism, benevolence or ego, review of these decisions finds that some end reasonably well but in retrospect, different and more practical treatment choices would have provided better outcomes. Basic mechanics, clinical pearls and treatment strategies will be touched on during this entertaining lecture series.
