Are we there yet? Reaching your destination on time with computer programmed sequential aligners

Event Details

Explore the increasing efficiencies in monitoring and finishing procedures with computer programmed sequential aligners.

Traditionally, finishing is the final and most challenging aspect of orthodontic treatment. Everything needs to come together in terms of clinical outcome and patient expectations, in a reasonable timeline. Join Dr Vlaskalic as she suggests effective preparation, monitoring and finishing measures to allow you to reach your treatment goals in a more efficient and effective manner.  

You will learn to:

  • Identify key areas affecting our finishing timeline
  • Implement strategies that increase efficiency
  • Troubleshoot finishing issues with clear aligners
  • Recognise management strategies to improve patient expectations and experience.

In 1997, Dr. Vlaskalic acted as co-investigator with Professor Robert Boyd in the original feasibility study of the Invisalign appliance, becoming one of the first orthodontists in the world to develop and use the system.

During her 6 years at Pacific, Dr. Vlaskalic received several awards, including 3 from the American Association of Orthodontists Foundation. Aside from Invisalign, Dr. Vlaskalic is published in topics including measurement of orthodontic outcomes and root resorption, as well as presenting abstracts and papers at IADR and international orthodontic meetings. She has been instrumental in the introduction of Invisalign into many countries, including the USA, Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, China and more recently Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Since returning to Melbourne, Dr. Vlaskalic works in her orthodontic specialty practice as an Invisalign Platinum Provider and as a clinical instructor at the University of Melbourne where she collaborates with students and faculty researching various aspects of the Invisalign System.
