Odds and Ends in Orthodontics

Course Description

Frequently, orthodontic presentations isolate one topic within our field to cover. This is not one of those.

Dr. Coby will touch upon a number of completely different topics and techniques. The intent is to maximize the participant’s exposure to different concepts, hints and tips that can be applied to the clinical practice of orthodontics.

Some of the areas of interest will include torquing and de-torquing auxiliary wires, force-decay considerations, asymmetrical mechanics, tips to improve treatment efficiency, diagnostic set-ups, open gingival embrasures, superelastic nickel titanium coils, and unconventional nickel titanium wire configurations.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the presentation, the participant will hopefully have a better understanding of the clinical applications reviewed and have some new tools for their toolbox.


Dr. Guy Coby is a Clinical Associate Professor of Orthodontics at Penn and is a Guest Visiting Lecturer for Harvard’s orthodontic program.
He reviews clinical and didactic curriculum including biomaterials, biomechanics, and interdisciplinary treatment with a particular focus on helping residents prepare for the board examination process.
