This year’s British Orthodontic Conference in Glasgow held on 19-21 September will see Professor Greg Huang from Washington State University delivering the prestigious Northcroft memorial lecture
Dr Huang will describe the findings from a large, prospective, practice-based network study conducted in the United States.
The study assessed the practitioner recommendations, patient acceptance, treatment outcomes, patient satisfaction and long-term stability.
Ninety-one practitioners and 347 adult anterior openbite patients from across the US were initially enrolled, with approximately 250 completing treatment during the study period.
Aligners, fixed appliances, TADs, and orthognathic surgery were investigated and Dr Huang will reveal the interesting results about treatment recommendations, acceptance, success, and satisfaction from this recently completed study.
Dr Huang received his dental degree from the University of Florida and then earned a certificate in orthodontics and an MSD from the University of Washington (1989).
After 10 years of private practice, he decided to pursue an academic career at the University of Washington.
He has been involved with many studies, from retrospective investigations to randomised trials.
In 2008, he was named chair of the department of orthodontics at the University of Washington.
Dr Huang is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and is the co-editor of two orthodontic textbooks: Evidence-based orthodontics (2011 and 2018) and Orthodontics: current principles and techniques, 6th edition (2016).
