Dr. Chris Chang received his PhD in bone physiology and Certificate in Orthodontics from Indiana University in 1996 and is a Diplomate of American Board of Orthodontics. He is the author of Jobsology, co-author of Orthodontics Vol I-IV, Clinical Implant Dentistry I-II, and publisher of International Journal of Orthodontics and Implantology. 

Dr. Chang frequently lectures worldwide on non-surgical orthodontic treatment, implant-orthodontic combined treatment and effective presentations. In addition to teaching and publishing, he also founded Newton’s A, Inc. and Beethoven Orthodontic Group, based in Hsinchu, Taiwan. 

He has been actively involved in the design of orthodontic bone screws and application on impaction treatment. His latest focus is implant and orthodontic combined treatment.

Tips in Clinical Orthodontics

The course will discuss the following topics

View all Close all
  • Simplified mechanics for challenging cases

    This lecture features well-documented cases to help clinicians create and execute easy and logical treatment plans. The supporting basic biomechanical principles will be explained. Critical evaluation of extraction vs. non-extraction will also be highlighted in the lecture. The goal is to convince you how you CAN treat these difficult cases easily with the powerful combination of self-ligation system and miniscrews.

  • Digital Orthodontics

    Digital orthodontics employs customized brackets and main wires, based on the desired final alignment, and indirect bonding with computer-assisted positioning to increase treatment efficiency and precision. Detailed case discussion will be presented to illuminate the benefits and tips in digital orthodontics, and argue why it is the future of orthodontics

  • Asymmetrical mechanics

    Asymmetries, whether dental or skeletal, are among the most challenging problems in orthodontics. While surgery proves to be a reliable treatment option to correct skeletal asymmetries, TADs provides a minimally invasive alternative to achieve satisfactory camouflage treatment results. This lecture aims to demonstrate how to use TADS to develop simplistic and yet effective mechanics in the non-surgical correction of asymmetries.

  • Interdisciplinary treatment to complex adult cases

    Complex adult cases often involve therapies in more than one discipline. It requires a thorough understanding of multiple disciplines in order to provide a comprehensive care. This lecture will focus on the sequence of IDT planning as well as stepwise procedures. Several practical tips will also be proposed.
