Everything happens for a reason. The one time in my life I didn’t throw away a piece of “junk mail”. Maybe something caught my eye. But for some reason, I ended up not only reading that invitation, but I made a phone call to attend the class.
The letter was regarding an up and coming technology becoming available for orthodontists to more effectively treat their patients. A small group of specialists would be in attendance, and somehow I just knew I needed to go. Little did I know how much a small slip of paper would end up changing my life and revolutionize the way I practice orthodontics.
My head was spinning with questions on my way home from Dr. Damon’s presentation.
No extractions? No appointments every month? Little pressure? Shorter treatment time? Healthier movement? Facial aesthetics over just straight teeth? Smile arc?! This information really did rock my world!
Over 15 years and thousands of Damon smiles later, I have been given many opportunities to both expand my knowledge and expertise and to share that experience with others. I was selected for the honor of being a member of Ormco Insiders. Ormco is a leader in consumable technology for progressive orthodontists. Being an insider allows me the privilege of being able to test new orthodontic products before they enter mass-production and to meet with the best of the best of the orthodontic world.
During one of the Insider meetings at beautiful Lake Tahoe, it was mentioned to me that there was great interest in having me share my cases with practicing specialists abroad. I was thrilled with this new opportunity and did not take too long to agree. This last December, I was able to spread the word about the Damon System to 450+ foreign colleagues in two days in two separate wonderful cities.
My hope is that I was able to inspire at least a few of these many orthodontists to change their vision the same way that Dr. Damon inspired me all those years ago. I am very grateful!
