Restorative Materials in Orthodontics

Volume 50 : Number 6 : Page 0 : Jun 2016

Like most senior orthodontists, I've attended hundreds of lectures on both orthodontics and dentistry as a whole. I have always taken a special personal interest in lectures involving interdisciplinary treatment - cases requiring the services of multiple specialists, with the restorative dentist finally establishing an optimum result. The late Dr. Vincent Kokich was perhaps my favorite speaker on this topic. Among his many professional and personal talents, he had an extraordinary ability to see the big picture in complex cases and to provide exemplary orthodontic care as part of a multidisciplinary team. In the last presentation I attended by Dr. Kokich before his untimely death in 2013, he opened with a statement that will always stick with me: that of all of the things he had accomplished in his professional life, he was most proud of having become a dentist. This probably explains why Vince was one of the best interdisciplinary orthodontists I have known.

What Influences a Pediatric Dentist to Refer to a Particular Orthodontist?

Volume 50 : Number 4 : Page 231 : Aug 2016

While orthodontists have traditionally relied heavily on referrals from general and pediatric dentists, an increasing number of patients have been receiving orthodontic care from non-orthodontic providers. As far back as 1981, Dugoni and colleagues reported that 55% of the orthodontic treatment provided through prepayment programs in California was delivered by non-orthodontists. In 1984, Moorrees noted an increase in the number of general and pediatric dentists offering orthodontic services.
