When is the time for orthodontic tooth movement after periodontal treatment? Periodontal health is a sine qua non condition before any orthodontic treatment. Defining health and healing outcomes after periodontal treatment for gingivitis and early-stage periodontitis patients might be more straightforward. However, this is definitely not the case for advanced stages and grades of periodontitis cases. When is the time for orthodontic tooth movement after periodontal treatment? In this talk, the current concepts of health and periodontal stability, periodontal therapy endpoints, and the timing to achieve them based on the biology of periodontal wound healing will be explored, trying to answer this question.

    Chris has been in full-time employment for 49 years. He has operated his own businesses for 32 years and has been a trainer, consultant, coach and mentor to the UK dental profession for 23 years. Chris combines long experience and deep expertise with the originality and independence needed to resolve the thorniest problems. ​ Naturally direct, assertive and determined, he can reach conclusions quickly, as well as possessing the sharp reflexes and lightness of touch to innovate, change tack and push boundaries. As a speaker, he is dynamic, energetic and charismatic. ​ Chris spent the first 17 years of his working life in the corporate sector and followed this with 30+ years of business ownership. The different dynamics of both worlds have given him the valuable gift of knowing how to operate – and communicate – in both. ​ In 1987 Chris was active in the establishment of the Institute for Financial Planning, an organisation representing the first fee-based Financial Planners in the UK; Chris specialised in working with small businesses. ​ In 1993 Chris decided to make the transition to business coaching and became one of the first UK students at Coach University, from where he graduated as a certified coach. Recognising the opportunity in the dental profession, 1997 saw the creation of The Dental Business School (DBS) and the development of a 12-month business coaching programme for dental practice owners and their teams, delivered to over 1000 UK dental practices in the following 10 years. ​ The first decade of the 21st Century saw Chris in a variety of roles including Non-Executive Directorships as well as continuing his training, consultancy and coaching work for dental corporates, PCTs, dental retailers and, of course, independent practices. ​ Chris has co-authored Profitable Dental Practice (with Prof. Phil Newsome) and The E-Myth Dentist (with Michael Gerber) and is a prolific contributor to dental journals as well as author of his own e-books and blog since 2004. ​ In 2014 Chris experienced a “brief but enjoyable” summer of celebrity after appearing as one of the first castaways on the TV survival show “The Island with Bear Grylls”, abandoned with 12 others on a Pacific desert island and left to fend for themselves for a month. ​ His own day to day work as Coach Barrow with The Extreme Business programmes is still focused on strategic coaching with the owners of dental practices and micro-corporates.

  • Dr Istvan Szentmariay

    Over the decades I have had the opportunity to learn about a large spectrum of diseases in people on whom I have performed autopsies. It has also been valuable to learn about the wide array of lifestyles and behaviours of society through investigations undertaken and histories provided. Although we all know that death is as natural as birth, it is difficult to comprehend the death of a loved one, but this is especially so when the death is unexpected. Although there is probably no such thing as the much clichéd “closure”, a detailed understanding of the events or disease process that led to death, despite high tech medicine, certainly helps people to accept and eventually live with the death of their loved one.

Plastic Predictability Pearls: Improving the Predictability of Clear Aligners I like predictability because I know what I’m getting into. – Actress, Katherine Heigl As the limitations of clear aligner treatments have been identified, conceptualizing techniques and devices to improve the predictability in producing desired results has been the next logical step. A variety of concepts, methods, and adjuncts have subsequently been introduced to enhance the efficacy and effectiveness of clear aligners. As a consequence, the scope of biomechanics and type of malocclusions that can be more predictably treated has increased. As one example, the inclusion of miniscrew temporary skeletal anchorage has permitted the addition of direct and indirect anchorage to support and control more predictable programmed tooth movements with aligners. In addition, specific instruments have also been developed to facilitate the individualization of aligners to apply specific forces.*

Due to the genetic nature of the vertical growth, however, it has been recognized as very challenging to correct the hyperdivergent face. A latest meta-analysis revealed the lack of clinical evidence in the vertical control using conventional appliances including high pull head gear. In contrast, our recent clinical & experimental studies revealed the possibility of total arch movement according to the force direction with regard to the estimated center of resistance of entire dental arch. Therefore, replacement of orthopedics using reliable total arch intrusion using miniscrews is inspiring. In this session, the biomechanics, clinical effects and stability of vertical control using total arch intrusion will be explained in the aspects of etiology, protocols and stability in Class II, III and asymmetry cases. Additionally, the rationale and possibilities of radical root movement of lower incisors leading to ‘symphyseal remodeling’ in children with hyperdivergent face will be demonstrated

This raised thousands of dollars for the dental treatment of homeless people which was donated to the Inner South Community Health service and the show was received with great reviews when performed at The Hilton Hotel at a dental congress and several music venues in Melbourne. It was designed to spread oral health messages to teenagers and make oral hygiene more sexy, especially flossing.

  • Dr Stephen Dudgeon

    I joined Avenue Dental in 2005 and never dreamed how well things would turn out. I am now fortunate enough to own Avenue Dental with my best friend, Dr Eli Burger, and we have an absolutely fantastic team of talented dentists, hygienists, oral health therapists, receptionists and dental assistants to work with. Steve and Dentistry After six years of university life, I graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Dental Science with First Class Honours. After graduating, I was lured to the lifestyle of Caloundra and the Sunshine Coast and joined the Avenue Dental family in 2005. I thank Dr Richard Bell for giving me the opportunity to work at Avenue Dental. My particular interests in dentistry are crown and bridgework, dental implants and cosmetic dentistry, however I like all aspects of dentistry. Generally, the larger the challenge, the more excited I get about dentistry! The two areas of dentistry I am not as passionate about are wisdom teeth removal and orthodontics. Fortunately we have Dr Richard Bell who is fantastic at wisdom tooth extractions and Dr Rachel Glancy who completes outstanding orthodontic treatment. After completing over 1 year of training at a dental implant training facility in Brisbane, I am excited to be able to offer dental implants right here on the Sunshine Coast. I love to see the difference that dental implants can make to people’s quality of life. Previously, when people had missing teeth the only option was a denture. Now we can replace missing teeth with a dental implant that looks, feels and chews like a natural tooth. Cosmetic Dentistry is the other area that I love because it makes such a difference to people’s lives. I feel a great sense of achievement when I am able to do fantastic dentistry that positively affects my patients. I also love being able to educate other dentists and pass on my passion to the next generation of dentists. For this reason, Dr Eli Burger and myself founded the Australian Dental Graduate of the Year Award to recognize and celebrate the best new graduate dentist in Australia each year. We also then take the top 5-10 new graduates in Australia and put them through the Avenue Dental Mini Residency in General Dentistry. This is an intensive program designed to best prepare newly graduated dentists for the challenges of dentistry and to develop them further into the best dentists that they can be. I am strongly committed to continuing education. I attend numerous courses each year, and also helped establish a study club in 2006; of which I am vice-president. To maintain registration as a dentist, the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) requires dentists to participate in 20 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) every year. I usually complete over 200 hours of CPD a year so that rather than just staying compliant with regulations, instead I am continually improving and raising the standard of care I can offer my patients. To complete this many hours of continuing education I dedicate a significant portion of my life to ongoing learning, as well as personal and professional development. This involves weekly team training meetings with our whole practice, one on one clinical coaching meetings with each of our dentists, monthly clinical and treatment planning meetings with our dentists, hygienists and oral health therapists, regular reading (I aim to read at least 1 book a month), regular journal reading, quarterly coaching and mentoring of other dentists through the Avenue Dental Mini Residency in General Dentistry, as well as attending other lectures and hands on courses that spark my interest. Steve and Avenue Dental My good friend and mentor, Dr Richard Bell, founded Avenue Dental in 1991. He hired me straight after I graduated from dental school and I am forever grateful for the faith he showed in me, and the time and effort he invested in me to help me become the dentist I am today. I love coming to work as each day I try to work towards our purpose, “Positively Transforming Dentistry in Australia”. I have found it very rewarding to clarify the values of Avenue Dental: Passion; Personal and Professional Growth; Positivity and Fun; People Synergistic Teamwork; Proactive and Creative; and Pursuit of Excellence. We use these as the standard by which we work together as a team and care for our patients.

Since graduating from dentistry at Latrobe University in 2012, Damian dived straight into a TMD and Dental Sleep Medicine clinic in Melbourne. Damian is passionate about looking “beyond the mouth” and treating the body as a whole. He believes dentists play an important role in being able to recognise airway/breathing issues, sleeping problems, and craniofacial pain (such as headaches, neck pain, and TMD). Damian first gained deeper knowledge and understanding of TMD, craniofacial pain, sleep medicine, and airways by completing the TMD & Sleep mini residency program by Dr. Steven Olmos in 2013. This led to Damian working in Darwin’s first official TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre in 2014, where he then restricted his practice to treating patients for snoring, sleep apnea, bruxism and TMD. He pursued further education in the field of sleep medicine and achieved his Post Graduate Diploma in Dental Sleep Medicine with the University of Western Australia in 2016. Over the years, Damian completed various mini-residency programs covering TMD, craniofacial pain, sleep medicine, orofacial myology and orthodontics with Dr Derek Mahony, Dr Jeffrey Okeson, Dr Tony Ancell, Dr Jamison Spencer, and Dr Steve Gallela. Knowing the value in multidisciplinary treatment, Damian has also completed courses in biochemistry, nutrition, exercise biomechanics, neuro kinetic therapy, Buteyko breathing, mental health and well-being. He also works closely with many different health practitioners ranging from physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, acupuncturists, speech pathologists, sleep respiratory physicians, ENTs, oral surgeons and even personal trainers.

  • Dr. Leo Lander

    Dr Lander graduated as a dentist in 2005. After graduation, he worked as an army dentist for several years followed by 2 years of training in Oral Surgery. During that time he also obtained an MBA degree to get a better business and financial background. In 2016, Leo completed a 3-years postgraduate program at the University of Otago (New Zealand) to become a specialist periodontist. Treatment of gum disease and Implantology have always been Leo’s main areas of focus. His primary objective is to provide all patients with healthy gums and a healthy smile. Leo believes having teeth as a natural organ is preferable to an artificial replacement; however, in cases that some teeth are missing or can not be restored, dental implants provide the best state of the art alternative. Leo is absolutely sure that Periodontal treatment is not a complicated thing, as long as you understand the principles, respect the biology and follow basic protocols … no bull!
