Ponder an unbelievable thought: that it’s possible to understand, enjoy and actually be entertained by the clinical application of basic engineering principles. Yes, those murky physical science doctrines we use for tooth movement can be deciphered to clarity.  Consider that allowing the brackets and archwires to make corrective and independent decisions is not a treatment axiom.

For this seminar, our attention will focus on a unique hands-on and simplified approach to understanding applied clinical orthodontic physical science: moments, forces, couples, moments of forces, moments of couples and their equilibrium.  In addition to a number of educators, recognition is due to Dr. Robert Isaacson for the development of these clinically useful materials and methods.

This educational, informative and entertaining presentation will provide simplified answers to clinically complex questions.

Learning objectives:

• Why are some deep overbites easy to correct and others exceptionally difficult or impossible to resolve?

• How the “Angle of Wire Entry” has a profound influence on treatment response and treatment time.

• How additive and subtractive forces work for and against shorter treatment times (hands-on participation).

• Reversing the Curve of Spee: why it works well in some patients and not all in others (hands-on participation).

• Feeling smart, cool, and confident in today’s ultra-competitive market

Instructor: Gerald S. Samson, DDS, Diplomat of The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO), Fellow of The American College of Dentists (FACD)


Described as an educational entertainer, Gerry Samson completed a pediatric dental residency at Emory University in 1979 under the direction of Dr. Ed Hibbard and orthodontics at Northwestern University in 1981 under the direction of Dr. Hal Perry. Since 1981, Gerry has been in private orthodontic practice and is a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics and a Fellow of The American College of Dentists. In addition to orthodontic private practice, Dr. Samson is an Adjunct Professor at The University of Texas at San Antonio, Associate Professor at The University of Alabama at Birmingham, at Case Western University Department of Orthodontics, and at St. Louis University Department of Orthodontics. He is visiting lecturer for orthodontic post-graduate programs at 8 universities in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China and throughout Southeast Asia. In addition, Gerry reviews orthodontic mechanics articles submitted for publication to The Angle Orthodontist. His zany, brainy and engaging methods have made him one of today’s most popular educators.  Online subscribers are certain to enjoy a unique educational, clinical experience that is exceptionally useful and motivating.
