Summer is approaching and our schedules aren't set in stone the same way they are during the school year. It's helpful for some patients to find extra time to wear their appliances but lack of schedule can also make it difficult to remember to put on your headgear or change your elastics. Keep in mind that orthodontic care ( and patient cooperation) doesn't stop just because it is the summer!

It's graduation time and we, at Kaspers Orthodontics, want to wish all of our graduates a hearty congratulations.

Dr. Kaspers has been busy teaching students on how to accurately treat and diagnose patients to have a balanced occlusion. His hope is for all patients to avoid TMJ issues-lock jaw, breakdown of teeth, bone and gums, as well as headaches. Dr. Kaspers last spoke to a group of students in St. Louis, MO on March 9, 2018.

Dr. Kaspers spoke at the Midwest Dental Meeting in Chicago on February 22, 2018. Many dental professionals came to the Kavo Kerr booth to find out what he had to say.

Dr. Kaspers taught a class at Case Western University in Ohio. His hope is that the new class of orthodontists will be knowledgable on treating patients to avoid TMD problems in the future. He will also be leading a seminar in St. Louis in March. He will be discussing how to transition an orthodontic practice from 2D imaging to 3D imaging.

Dr. Kaspers  spoke at a professional seminar on Friday, September 29, 2017 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Des Plaines. The seminar focused on transitioning orthodontic practices from 2D imaging to 3D imaging as well as the advantages that 3D imaging offers to the orthodontic specialty.

Guess who is a grandmother for the second time?????

Dina has a grandson-although she was expecting a little girl to be born and now, a granddaughter as well!!!  Gee, we wonder if they'll need braces in the future!

Dr. Kaspers  spoke in San Diego, CA on April 20, 2017. The program was about how to use 3D technology to achieve a seated condylar position for accurate clinical diagnosis and treatment. He has already heard from other dentists that would like him to speak at their study clubs!

 

Dr. Kaspers spoke at the 3-D Congress in Las Vegas on March 9-11, 2017. He  discussed his desire to help the dental/orthodontic profession understand the advantages of the CBCT scan machine so that diagnosis of orthodontic cases can be made more easily and more accurately.

 

ORTHODONTIC HUMOR

Dr. Kaspers is featured in the Dental Products Report magazine. The article is about how the I-Cat 3D imaging helped diagnose and correct constricted airways for a patient, her siblings and her father. The family is relieved knowing that Dr. Kaspers is taking care of health issues that may happen when the children grow older as well as straightening teeth.
