My Recent Trip to the AAO Conference in San Diego A LEARNING EXPERIENCE

of the technology, but it’s still constantly being updated and adapted to maximize ease of use and

patient engagement.

Convention in San Diego, an enlightening

Saving our patients time in general was a big theme at the conference. Photobiomodulation is a promising new technique in orthodontic care. With photobiomodulation, we use light to help the cells in the mouth produce more energy in order to facilitate the growth of bone cells. The analogy is simple: If you take a stick of butter straight out of the fridge and try to cut it, it’s going to be a struggle. But if you heat the butter beforehand, the process goes much more smoothly. Not only that, but photobiomodulation reduces pain discomfort during treatment significantly, allowing for completely medication- free applications. At any given moment, I am working to improve myself, my skills, and my practice. Gatherings like the AAO Conference are an opportunity to grow

five-day event with a wide selection of lectures aimed at keeping us orthodontists up to date. When serving patients is your passion, these conferences are a lot of fun. They give you an opportunity to meet up with those colleagues you don’t often get to see — I had lunch with a friend I hadn’t seen in 25 years — while absorbing a vast amount of knowledge. I was even invited to work with other top doctors in Invisalign to push the technology forward into the future. The whole conference was abuzz with discussion of new phone-based technologies that will aid our practices, especially the latest dental monitoring phone tools. Dental monitoring is essentially using an app on your phone to take pictures of your teeth in the middle of alignment treatment that then gets sent to your orthodontist, allowing us to more closely monitor the progress of your treatment while reducing the need for further office visits. We were an early adopter

Before I say anything else, I’d like to say a big thank-you to everyone who came out for our Friends and Family Day on May 12. We were so excited to meet the people closest to our patients and help them in any way we could. All of us at Alborzi Orthodontics appreciate each and every one of you so much, and thanks again for the huge turnout! I hope every new person who came through our doors last month had a positively exemplary experience. We strive to create the most comfortable, welcoming environment possible, while applying the latest and greatest in orthodontic technologies and practices. Staying abreast of cutting-edge techniques in the orthodontic field is a vital part of providing robust service to our patients. To that end, I’m always participating in various orthodontic conferences and events. Most recently, I attended the massive annual American Association of Orthodontics

and learn as both an orthodontist and as an individual. Even more importantly, they equip me with the tools to serve my patients more effectively, comfortably, and efficiently than ever. – Dr. Alexa Alborzi
