Orthodontics is Changing. Are You?

3D imaging is quickly emerging as the standard of care in orthodontics as new ultra low-dose CBCT technology offers safer and more affordable volumetric scanning than ever before. The advantages of CBCT over traditional 2D imaging are numerous, including:

  • 3D treatment planning and the transverse dimension
  • Airway-centered treatment from information not available using 2D imaging
  • Improved pre-existing TMJ knowledge and avoiding surprises during treatment
  • Mixed dentition and eruption guidance in 3D imaging
  • Visual Craniometric Analysis (VCA) – a new paradigm in 3D Cephalometrics
  • Unparalleled imagery for patient marketing and case acceptance

Did You Know?

  • New generation CBCT machines have less than half the radiation of a digital panorex1
  • As of 2011, 4 out of 5 US and Canadian orthodontic residency programs use CBCT regularly2
  • CBCT provides stronger diagnostic and more accurate measurements than 2D imaging3, 4, 5


Dr. Duane Grummons
"Two early-adopter orthodontic colleagues, Dr. JC Quintero and Dr. Sean Carlson, deeply know and effectively teach accurate maxillo-mandibular structural and airway CBCT aspects. Be a continuous student by seeking their game changing knowledge."

Dr. Carlson is an Associate Professor at the University of Pacific School of Dentistry, where he served as a Senior Investigator in the Craniofacial Research and Instrumentation Laboratory. He has received several academic research awards and has published numerous orthodontic articles and abstracts. Being at the forefront of 3-D imaging technology since its introduction to the orthodontic profession, he has developed and introduced the Visual Craniometric Analysis (VCA) to aid clinicians in designing more appropriate treatment plans and to improve their understanding of treatment success.

Dr. Juan-Carlos QuinteroDr. Juan-Carlos Quintero

Dr. Quintero earned his dental degree from the University of Pittsburgh and received his orthodontic training at University of California, San Francisco, where he also obtained his Master of Science degree in Oral Biology. Dr. Quintero first worked as an associate to Dr. Ron Roncone before settling into private practice in South Miami, FL after purchasing the practice of late Dr. Lindsey Pankey, Jr. Dr. Quintero has served as National President of the American Association for Dental Research-Student Research Group and has won numerous national research competitions.
