Pre-Congress Course

Keynote speaker: Dr Luis Carrière (Spain)


„SAGITTAL FIRST: Treatment Planning Transformed“


Dr Carrière is charting new territory with his groundbreaking SAGITTAL-FIRST Philosophy. Correcting the Class II or Class III malocclusion at the beginning of treatment, when patients are most compliant, provides greater efficiencies, shorter treatment times and long-term aesthetics. Dr Carrière will show how using the Carriere® Motion Appliance to correct the AP, reposition the mandible, and expand the airway, reduces average treatment times to 12 months or less. This new unique and innovative treatment approach ensures that the orthodontist addresses the total facial harmony of the patient. Dr Carriére will also review soft tissue analysis and how to ensure long term treatment results which benefits patients as they age.


Dr Carrière will provide ground-breaking clinical evidence that will challenge your views on traditional treatment philosophies. Each attendee will leave this event with a unique set of new tools to differentiate their practice, satisfy your patients, while maintaining optimal clinical results.

  • Achieve Class II and Class III correction in an average of three to four months
