2024 Surgidontics Conference

JOIN US AT THE DESERT SPRINGS RESORT & SPA!

April 4 – 7, 2024  |  Palm Desert, CA

Please Join Us For Our 5th Annual Surgidontics Conference

The Surgidontics team is excited to host our 5th annual Surgidontics Conference.  Our conferences are designed around high level academic topics that are immediately applicable within your practice.  We keep our meeting small, less than 20 attendees, to cultivate a collaborative environment. The Surgidontics team works hard to curate experiences outside of the lectures for you and a guest from dinners to one of-a-kind activities. There is a growing need for academics in the ortho-surgical field.  Patients are becoming more knowledgeable and seeking specific practitioners with very precise goals in mind.

Surgidontics Conference 2024 – MEET OUR SPEAKERS

We are thrilled to have the guru aligner orthodontist, Dr. Mazyar Moshiri, discuss the following topics:

  • Optimal cases for aligners in orthognathic surgery
  • Surgical cases are not ideal for treatment with aligners
  • Adjunctive techniques
  • Common pitfalls

We are also pleased to welcome back Dr. Alex Waldman to discuss the optimization of practice systems for patients in aligner therapy.  The Surgidontics team always works hard to curate experiences outside of the lectures for you and a guest to enjoy from dinners to one of-a-kind activities in the area.  We can’t wait for you to join us, April 4-7, in Palm Springs.
