BARCELONA, Spain: From 14 to 16 September, Henry Schein Orthodontics is holding its third annual European Carriere Symposium in Barcelona. The company’s orthodontic business will bring together leading speakers and forward-thinkers in a powerful learning environment, aiming to showcase its latest innovations and clinical solutions.

The event offers a broad spectrum of new clinical products that deliver dental, facial and overall health results. The range of progressive topics will include advancements in self-ligation, the Sagittal First concept, new airway-friendly orthodontic strategies, and digital orthodontics. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience cutting-edge technology and forward-looking evidence-based protocols that can help orthodontists to achieve new levels of patient care and practice efficiency and effectiveness. Several networking opportunities will be available to allow orthodontists to share their experiences with peer professionals practising around the world.

Furthermore, the exhibition will review the key elements of the digital orthodontics workflow, including intra-oral scanning, digital imaging, clinical orthodontic planning and 3-D printing. A digital orthodontics exhibition area will be powered by Henry Schein ConnectDental, a platform that reflects the interoperability of digital dental technology and links together the steps of the clinical workflow.

For this year’s event, the keynote speaker will be Dr Luis Carrière, along with an impressive line-up of well-known speakers. Carrière will focus on how facial, skeletal and dental harmony can be achieved using the Carriere System. On the basis of cases treated at his practice, the Spanish orthodontist and inventor of the system will demonstrate that orthodontic treatment using the Carriere System could be an alternative for patients with facial disproportions who would otherwise have to undergo invasive surgery.

“Orthodontists should claim their position as facial-aesthetic specialists. We do not only deliver straight teeth, but provide renewed confidence, enhanced appearance and consequently new lives to patients,” Carrière said. “In my opinion, the orthodontist should be the first professional to be consulted when it comes to oral and maxillofacial treatment planning.”

Among the speakers is Dr Sean Carlson, who will be lecturing on how to make use of digital diagnostics and incorporate a total-patient treatment approach. His focus will be on the visualisation of the airway in particular and show how orthodontic treatment can improve outcomes in patients with temporomandibular disorders or obstructive sleep apnoea. Furthermore, Dr Francesco Garino will be introducing participants to the use of the Carriere Motion appliance as a breakthrough treatment strategy to correct challenging Class II aligner cases, and Dr Anil Idiculla will be explaining how to align core philanthropic values in orthodontic practice and offer an unforgettable patient experience.

The symposium will be held in English and simultaneously interpreted into Spanish, Italian and French.
