Owen Crotty – Beyond digital orthodontics: enjoy the view

Owen Crotty has been a principal at Crotty Orthodontics in Cork since 1992.

With over 30 years as a specialist, Owen has seen orthodontics evolve from analogue to digital systems.

As well as this, he is a faculty member and KOL for Invisalign and Dental Monitoring, and has beta tested products for both Invisalign and for Suresmile.

Owen’s lecture will discuss how the tools available to treat orthodontic patients have evolved during the digital era.

On his lecture topic, Owen commented: ‘It is important to understand how they complement traditional orthodontic principles and the value of treating with a hybrid approach.

‘As the rate of development accelerates, we must remember that what is now “innovative” is likely to become “best practice” at some stage.’

In addition, he hopes delegates take away from his lecture:

  • An understanding of the meaning of ‘digital orthodontics’
  • A visualisation of some of the possibilities opened up by the digital tools now available to us
  • An understanding of the similarities between traditional and more modern orthodontics.
