9th Annual William H. Bell Lectureship: Overcoming Obstacles in Orthognathic Surgery

Friday, November 16, 2018 - Saturday, November 17, 2018 | 12 p.m. – 12:20 p.m. Add to Calendar

Program Overview

Three-dimensional virtual planning improves the outcomes of orthognathic surgery, but several barriers have prevented full implementation. Successful implementation requires

  1. an understanding of computer tomography, image processing, and three-dimensional geometry,
  2. the use well-tested software and planning protocols, and (3) cost-control.

In this seminar, attendees will learn the fundamentals of three-dimensional medical imaging, how to diagnose facial deformities using advanced morphometric tools, and how to efficiently simulate treatment in a 3D virtual environment. Additionally, attendees will learn the latest treatment planning protocols and how to reduce treatment cost.

Target Audience

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontist, plastic surgeons, otolaryngologist, residents/fellows, researchers, nurses, and technicians involved with or interested in oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Educational Objectives

 Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to:

  • Describe the fundamentals of three-dimensional imaging
  • Assess and quantify jaw deformities correctly
  • Plan orthognathic surgeries efficiently and effectively
