Washington, DC Orthodontist Returns from Giving Invisalign® Lecture in Asia

Washington, DC — Super Elite Invisalign® provider Wayne Hickory, DMD of Embassy Row Orthodontics recently returned from Gangnam, Seoul, South Korea where he presented a lecture series on Invisalign® to Invisalign® certified doctors in Korea. Similar to previous lectures he gave in both Hong Kong and Jakarta at the beginning of February, his presentation in South Korea focused on three main topics:

  • “Invisalign® for Early Phase Orthodontics (7 to 10 year-old patients)”
  • “Why Invisalign® is Now Faster and more Effective than Braces”
  • “Propel Orthodontics” (a system designed to accelerate the Invisalign® treatment)

A common theme stressed throughout the entirety of Dr. Hickory’s lecture series was the growing superiority Invisalign® has over traditional teeth straightening techniques. According to How Invisalign® Surpasses Braces for Children of All Ages, a blog post on the Embassy Row Orthodontics website, “In comparison to metal braces, Invisalign® provides several distinct benefits, including removable aligners, no broken brackets, and no poking wires. Additionally, difficulties with proper oral care can be reduced by removing the aligners while brushing and flossing.”

The blog entry goes on to say the Invisalign® treatment typically requires fewer visits to the orthodontist office for maintenance and repairs, and should the patient ever lose an aligner, he or she will typically be able to skip to the next custom aligner in the incremental series without experiencing any issues.

Upon his return to Washington, DC, Dr. Hickory said he was grateful for this opportunity to share his knowledge about Invisalign® in Asia, and he looks forward to continuing to lecture both nationally and internationally.
