He is also a member of the editorial board of 3 international orthodontic journals. 1. Does arch expansion with self-ligating brackets grow bone? 2. Is expansion with self-ligating brackets stable long term? 3. Aesthetics – do buccal corridors really matter? 4. Does orthodontic treatment improve a patient's periodontal condition or worsen it? 5. Does extraction treatment have a negative bearing on aesthetics? 6. Is non-extraction treatment really non-extraction? 2003 - Received the Beni Solow Award for the best article published in the European Journal of Orthodontics 7.

Long-Term Outcome of CLP Treatment as a Result of Interdisciplinary Cooperation and Careful Planning Prof. Dr. Anne Marie Kuijpers-Jagtman - The Netherlands 1995-now - Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Orthodontics and Craniofacial Biology at the Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands) She is a past President of the European Orthodontic Society, a former President of the Dutch Society for the Study of Orthodontics and also of the Dutch Cleft Palate Craniofacial Association. At present, she is Councillor of the World Federation of Orthodontists (WFO). Congress Conferences: Long-Term Outcome of CLP Treatment as a Result of Interdisciplinary Cooperation and Careful Planning The principal role of the interdisciplinary cleft lip and palate team (CLP team) is to provide integrated care for children with clefts and to assure quality and continuity of patient care and longitudinal follow-up. The decisive factors for the final treatment results are: a high caseload per surgeon, a clear and ‘simple’ treatment plan, and a well-organized setting for CLP-care. In 2002, she was honoured with a Fellowship in Dental Surgery by Election to the Royal College of Surgeons of England and in 2004, she received the Cesare Luzi Memorial Award of SIDO in Italy. She was awarded Knight in the Order of Orange-Nassau (Royal Honour of Her Majesty the Queen) for her services to cleft lip and palate treatment in 2007. In 2009 and 2011, her group received the Samuel Berkowitz Award from the American Cleft Palate Craniofacial Association for the best publication on long-term results of cleft lip and palate treatment. From Single 3D Images to Fusion Models of the Head She has undertaken extensive research during the past 25 years in the areas of cleft lip and palate and the biological background of orthodontics. In recent years, her major interests have been in 3Dimaging in orthodontics and evidence-based orthodontic therapy. She has given numerous lectures in 35 countries around the globe. A synergy between these methods is created when they are fused together to display all three facial structures at once in a virtual head. For that reason, improvement of single 3D imaging techniques and fusion processes has been the number one priority within the 3D lab in Nijmegen. Nowadays, the lateral and frontal cephalogram and the OPT can be replaced by one cone beam CT scan, which enables a 3D-analysis of the facial structures. 3D-facial still pictures can be made and just recently 3D-video started to develop, which brings in the 4th dimension. Digital dental casts will replace plaster casts for clinical use and intra-oral digital impression taking is a new exciting development.

The evolution of our techniques allows us to reach such results through a proper mechanical thinking and through the use of specific bracket/wire-assembly appliances. Improved sliding mechanics and lower friction guarantee the generation of the proper forces for dental movement, while taking physiology into consideration. Therefore, the TGO prescription combines the benefits of the In- Ovation® system to an innovative prescription in the anterior region Skeletal Anchorage in Adult Orthodontic Treatment Dr. Johannes Grossen – Switzerland Postgraduate orthodontic training in Bern (Prof. Bengt Ingervall) and earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Bern. 1994-now - Private practice in Langenthal (Switzerland) and is a part-time instructor at the Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at the University of Bern.
