Our mission and responsibility at powaybraces.com is to constantly stay abreast of current information in all phases of orthodontic treatment. At the meeting we just attended in Atlantic City, updates on advanced 3D imaging, missing teeth, infection control and the H1N1 virus were just a few topics experts shared current information. Our office is highly proactive regarding the H1N1 virus – we require any ill patient to reschedule their appointment and we request families to not bring ill children or adults into our waiting room. We and use hand disinfection solutions all around the office. Dr Thomas attends well over the minimum 25 hours a year of Advanced Continuing Education, which is required by the State of California Dental Board. He often attends or teaches 50-75 hours each year. Our next orthodontic meeting is the upcoming Damon Forum, to be held in Phoenix Arizona. This is one of the largest and most informative meetings in the Orthodontic field. Dr Thomas has taught at each of the past 3 annual meetings as a certified educator for the Damon System. In addition, Dr Thomas is President of the Southern California Damon Study Club, a member of the Progressive Orthodontic Study Club, and has taught in many locations in North and South America.
