This past February, Dr Thomas attended the second largest Orthodontic meeting held in the United States called the Damon Forum. It was held in Orlando Florida & had over 2000 doctors and staff in attendance. Over three days, Dr Thomas attended and participated in 16 hours of continuing education courses – California only requires 50 hours every two years!!

We are proud of the fact that our office always strives to incorporate the latest advances in Orthodontic care. Recently, Dr Thomas and his staff attended the 9th annual Damon Forum held in Phoenix Arizona. It was a 3 day meeting where the doctors and staff attended courses and lectures from 8am – 5pm every day. Topics included advanced treatment techniques including new material on how to correct difficult bites in 18 months with far more comfort for our patients and the use of temporary ancor screws to help many people avoid jaw surgery to correct their bites! Previous years Dr. Thomas was one of the keynote speakers at the Damon Forum teaching how to best use custom braces for all patients. Our office strives to give our patients the best possible orthodontic treatment with great customer service – exactly what we would want for our children as well.

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.
