“We’ve had an enjoyable evening,” said Dr. Kusnoto. “Local dentists responded to our invitation with a great deal of enthusiasm. Our guests have specifically remarked on the informative lecture and warm atmosphere of the night. The seminar provided a great opportunity to learn about how to detect early orthodontic problems in children and what orthodontic treatments can correct those problems in early age to prevent from more serious dental, orthodontic and craniofacial problems in adolescence and adults.”
The dentists attending the seminars shown strong interest in Dr. Oppermann’s presentation and raised many questions. “The seminar is very informative and helpful. I really appreciate Dr. Kusnoto and Dr. Oppermann for the opportunity to enrich our knowledge in dentistry and orthodontics.” said Dr. Hilary Cheng who is a dental practitioner in Bridgeport with more than 30 years of experiences. “The cases Dr. Oppermann presented are impressive. They gave me more insight of the importance of detecting early orthodontic problems in children and treating them with proper methods to correct the mal-occlusal problems.”
This is the second continual education seminar Dr. Kusnoto organized at AllCare Orthodontic Center. He plans to organize more events of this kind in the future. He finds it very beneficial for an orthodontic specialists to discuss current developments in the field of dentistry with the dental professionals.
