American Association of Orthodontists Annual Meeting in Hawaii

In early May, Dr. Tam attended the annual AAO session in Hawaii.  Every couple of years, it is part of his mandate to make it to the AAO because it is a fantastic way to stay in tune with the new science as well as technology in our field.  There were seminars on practice management, use of retainers, facial aesthetics, and more.  

One of the best parts of the meeting is meeting and speaking with orthodontists from all over the world to share experiences and ideas.  Dr. Tam is fortunate to know some of the top Invisalign orthodontists in the world, and met up with them, including Dr. Sam Daher and Dr. Grant Duncan.  Often, this type of interaction leads to a number of great discussions!

Of course, when the meeting is in a place like Hawaii, it is a great time to also have some R and R with the family!
