Hello colleagues and people curious about orthodontics,
I am part of the first generation of digital natives, being born in the early 80s. Since my very first x286 personal computer I was magnetically attracted by technologies and it was natural to transfer this passion into orthodontics while getting into it. Oh well, as the name of the blog may let think I am an italian orthodontist living in Lausanne (Switzerland). I love to work hands-in-the-mouth of my patients but I also love to deeply understand what I do. That’s why I never really ceased to study and I am working in private practice but also in the University of Geneva (Switzerland) as a part time researcher. When I am not working as an orthodontist I am running somewhere or climbing some mountains, as these are my favorite hobbies beside orthodontics =)
Since the very beginning I oriented my studies and research in the 3D-imaging field, and more specifically into digital models. I was wishing to prepare myself to the future, but what was supposed to be the future 10 years ago, is pretty much the present right now. By opening my practice I intended to totally abolish all alginate and silicon impressions and have a no-plaster / no-paper office. I was wishing to exploit as best as possible all the advantages of digital models and I would like to share my experience with my colleagues my experience as 3D orthodontist*. Our profession is evolving so rapidly that a total shift to digital is getting imperative.
This is my first post, in my first blog. I hope you could find useful tips around the blog. I would like to share little by little on a monthly basis tips and tricks of how to run, manage and profit of a 3D practice. There will be posts as well as videos. Comments and debates are welcome to live up the blog! =)
The time is now to master digital 3D orthodontics. Don’t wait any further!
