I am a general dentist who developed an interest in orthodontics in order to treat my own children. I began incorporating orthodontics in my practice in 1999 with fixed and removable appliances, treating adults and growing children, practicing also dentofacial orthopaedics.
In 2004, I incorporated Invisalign aligners in my "toolbox". Because of the success I had treating patients with this technology, I did more and more cases and became rapidly an Elite Prefer Provider of Invisalign.
In 2015, after winning the Invisalign Summit Shootout in Las Vegas, Align Technology offered me to become an instructor. Since then I teach Invisalign Fundamental, Intermediate and Advanced courses across Canada and USA and hopefully Europe soon ;)
I believe aligner orthodontics is something all general dentist should incorporate in their day to day general practice. It is for the benefit of our patient, our team, ourselves and for the benefit of dentistry.
In 2015 I was the first Canadian dentist to win the INVISALIGN Summit Shootout held every two years in Las Vegas at the INVISALIGN Summit convention.
In 2016 I was the first one to present an INVISALIGN case for the Case of the Year at the annual IAO (International Association fro Orthodontics) convention in Tucson Arizona. I received third place.
