Digital Orthodontics: The New Standard of Practice, Dr. Christian Favero
Digital advances such as CBCT, scanners and 3D printers have allowed development of applications that use various approaches to visualize patient records in 3 dimensions, perform virtual 3D treatment for tooth movement, surgical treatment and more accurate treatment modalities such as labial and lingual bracket systems, robotically bent arch wires, bracket placement accuracy, and in-house aligner fabrication. This presentation will review some of the latest digital orthodontic advances.

Selected Indications for the Use of CBCT, Dr. David Hatcher
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) provides an anatomic accuracy that is not achievable with conventional panoramic and cephalometric imaging – it has the potential to have unique clinical value in selected clinical scenarios. The intent of this presentation is to identify key patient phenotypes that may benefit from an investigation with a CBCT scan, including dolichofacial growth pattern, mandibular asymmetry, acquired change in bite, impactions, craniofacial malformations, TMD and patients with suspected sleep disorders.

Digital Prosthodontics – Don’t Be Left in the Stone Ages, Dr. Brock Hinton
Digital dentistry is here to stay. Bunsen burners, waxing instruments, casting, dental x-ray film, paper charts, pouring up models and PFM’s have all become dinosaurs. CAD/CAM, CBCT and other digital advancements offer improved quality, improved cost and time efficiency, improved communication and an improved patient experience. Come find out what’s happening in Prosthodontics!

Virtual Surgery, Guided Execution and Orthognathic Surgery, Dr. Richard Jackson
The virtually dynamic patient-specific models have multiple therapeutic uses in dentistry today. They are used for orthodontic, prosthodontic, endodontic, and implantology cases. This lecture focuses on virtual dynamic patient specific models for corrective jaw surgery, including data acquisition and the construction of the use of the virtual models for treatment planning of the face, airway, bite, smile and joint, as well as the production of custom plates, marking and cutting guides that are utilized in a state of the art guided surgery.

Christian Favero, DDS, MSD:

Dr. Favero is a Board Certified orthodontist practicing in Roseville with his father, Scott Favero. Before dental school, Christian worked as an industrial designer for 5 years. His work included product design and development, textile design, and 3D modeling and prototyping. He received his dental degree from University of the Pacific and his masters degree and orthodontic certificate from The University of Texas at Houston. While in residency, Christian’s thesis involved evaluating and comparing the accuracy of various 3D-printers in orthodontics. His work was published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. He has also co-authored a related article published in the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics. Christian’s background in 3D programs and design allows him to bring a unique approach to patient treatment and applying the latest technology to orthodontics is one of his passions.

David Hatcher, DDS:

Dr. Hatcher, received his D.D.S. degree from the University of Washington. Subsequently he completed two years active duty in the U.S. Public Health Service and a one year general practice residency program at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Dr. Hatcher entered the graduate program in radiology at the University of Toronto and was granted a specialty degree in Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology in 1982 and a M.Sc. in 1983. His thesis topic dealt with radiology of tempormandibular disorders. Presently Dr. Hatcher is in private practice in Sacramento, California and has faculty appointments as Clinical Professor at the University of California San Francisco, University of California Los Angeles, University of California Davis, and University of the Pacific. Dr. Hatcher has published 150 Articles/ book chapters and has presented nationally and internationally.

Brock Hinton, DDS:

Dr. Hinton is a prosthodontist with 30 years of experience in a group specialty practice treating complex dental problems. His practice includes all phases of prosthodontics including full mouth rehabilitation, dental implant reconstruction, cosmetics, TMJ and sleep disorders.

Richard Jackson, DDS:

Dr. Jackson is a Board Certified Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon who has been in the practice of oral maxillofacial surgery in Sacramento, California for the past 32 years. Dr. Jackson has a well-rounded full scope practice with special interest in surgically facilitated orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. His interest began in orthognathic surgery in 1974 while he was an intern at Wright- Patterson Medical Center in Dayton, Ohio. Back in those days, the vertical ramus osteotomies were done extra-orally, and the maxillary osteotomies were done in two distinct stages. Obviously, orthognathic surgery has changed vastly since those early days. Dr. Jackson was a pioneer and forward thinker who was a frequent guest lecturer in orthognathic surgery. Dr. Jackson retired from major hospital surgery and orthognathic surgery in 2018. Today, he continues to practice office based oral surgery, part-time.
