Dr. John Voudouris’ visit at HSDM, honouring Dr. Jack G. Dale, his Orthodontist, mentor and friend, in his second presentation on Craniofacial growth. The full-day course addressed Phase 1 fixed functional functional diagnosis and treatment plannin optimized by Phase 2 passive-active self-ligation biomechanics. This was in conjunction with several other new technologies including the new JV Barre Distalizer, TS2 and BT2.
