Toronto Invisalign Specialist Speaks to Metro New York Orthodontists

Those seeing Invisalign in Toronto should understand that Invisalign is a technique, rather than a product.  This is why, whenever seeking treatment, price is not really something that can be compared fairly, since your treatment results will differ depending on the doctor you choose.

Last Thursday, Dr. Tam taught a focused group of 8 orthodontists from the New York City area, followed by a full lecture Friday on moving teeth with Invisalign to about 70 doctors.  His primary message was that Invisalign movements are the responsibility of the doctor and that telling patients Invisalign doesn't work is not because Invisalign doesn't work, but rather because the doctor has not learned to feel comfortable using it.

Speaker list:  Dr. Nicozicis, Dr. Tam, and Dr. Kottemann
Other renowned Invisalign speakers included Dr. Jonathan Nicozicis in Princeton, NJ speaking about deep bite and open bites, Dr. Bill Kottemamn from Minneapolis, MN talking about class 2 correction, and famed consultant Rosemary Bray in the staff treatment coordinator session.  Congratulations to Dr. Tam on being invited to speak at one of the most famous areas in North America at the Metro New York City Invisalign Expo!

Toronto Orthodontist Visits Maritimes Invisalign Specialist

Dr. Tam is always interested in seeing the way orthodontic practices are run all over the world.  Recently he was in PEI and visited the Charlottetown office of the largest orthodontic practice in Eastern Canada at docbraces.  Their office is the hard work of Dr. John McManaman, an orthodontist serving New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and PEI.  Thank you to Dr. John for having Nancy show Dr. Tam around the office.

Your Markham Orthodontist also had a chance to speak with Mr. Charney, from King Street Capital, regarding the trend of corporatization of dental practices.  They had some very candid discussion about what this means for private practice and patient care.

Richmond Hill Invisalign Orthodontist in Las Vegas at Work and at Play

Your Stouffville Invisalign Orthodontist believes in an active life in the world of orthodontics, but feels there is a lot that can benefit his patients with input from industries outside of orthodontics.

Recently, he was in Las Vegas to meet with life consultant Kyle Ray, who has gone through the 21st Century Leadership Program.  With a special interest in life direction and perspective, Ray has continually provided Dr. Tam with stimulus to keep challenging himself.

He also sat down with Dr. Alice Chen, a pediatric dentist at Red Rock Kid's Dentistry, pediatric dentist in Summerlin, Las Vegas.  They discussed the ongoing interactions between pediatric dentistry and orthodontics, as well as the use of Invisalign for teenagers as well as adults.  Dr. Tam emphasized the use of Invisalign as a technique rather than as a product.

Dr. Tam was able to arrange a second meeting with Mr. Richard Brodie, the author of Microsoft Word.  He is also the author of the bestselling publications, Getting Past OK: The Self-Help Book for People Who Don't Need Help.  They sat down to again discuss various issues along with Mr. Brodie's friend Nick, an electrical engineer working for the US Government.  Dr. Tam feels it a great privilege to be able to spend time with Mr. Brodie to gain his insights and perspectives.

Invisalign IPR is a Important Part of Many Orthodontic Treatments

Your Toronto Invisalign specialist is the one who plans how your teeth will move using the ClinCheck program provided by Align Technology.  Often times, space is required to move the teeth, but the crowding is not severe enough to warrant extraction, but cannot be achieved by dental expansion.  This is not unique to Invisalign but is used with traditional braces as well.  In these cases, Interproximal Reduction (aka IPR, slenderizing, discing, shaving, polishing) may be employed.

Markham Orthodontist To Deliver Invisalign Lecture in Richmond Hill

Rarely does a dental society have its own member deliver a lecture to its component society, due to conflict of interest and fairness to all members.  This April, Dr. Tam has been given the honour of speaking to the York Region Dental Society about Invisalign in Richmond Hill at the Sheraton Parkway.  It was a natural choice as Dr. Tam has spoken to doctors internationally.

Dr. Jason Tam to lecture on Invisalign in Richmond Hill
He will once again provide his lecture on "Invisalign as a Technique Rather than a Product", focussing on the the requirement for doctors to understand how Invisalign works, and to help them realize that treatment results will differ depending on the planning and knowledge of the appliance.
