Third annual European Carriere Symposium

Published: 06/07/2017

Henry Schein Orthodontics, the orthodontics business of Henry Schein, Inc., has announced its third annual European Carriere Symposium, to take place on September 14-16, 2017, in Barcelona, Spain, at Hotel W.

As in prior years, the event is expected to sellout, bringing together leading orthodontic speakers and forward-thinking attendees in a powerful learning environment.

The event will showcase a broad spectrum of the latest innovations and new clinical solutions that deliver dental, facial, and total-health results. Progressive topics will range from advancements in self-ligation and sagittal first concept, to new airway-friendly orthodontics cases and strategies and digital orthodontics. Attendees will have the chance to experience cutting-edge technology and forward-looking, evidence-based protocols that can help enable orthodontists to achieve new levels of patient care and practices efficiencies and effectiveness. Several networking opportunities will be available to allow orthodontists to share their experiences with other peer professionals practicing around the world.

The exhibition will also review the key elements of the digital orthodontics workflow, including intraoral scanning, digital imaging, clinical ortho planning and 3D printing. A digital orthodontics exhibition area will be powered by Henry Schein ConnectDental, a platform that reflects the interoperability of digital dental technology and links together every step of the clinical workflow.

For this year’s event, the keynote speaker will be Luis Carrière, and the program chairman David Paquette, along with an impressive line-up of world-renowned speakers. Luis Carrière will focus on how facial, skeletal and dental harmony can be achieved using the leading-edge Carriere System. By using cases treated at his practice, the Spanish orthodontist and inventor of the system will demonstrate that orthodontic treatment using the Carriere System is a favorable alternative for patients with facial disproportions who would otherwise have to undergo invasive surgery.

“Orthodontists should claim their position as facial-aesthetic specialists. We do not only deliver straight teeth, but provide renewed confidence, enhanced appearance and, consequently, new lives to patients,” said Luis. “In my opinion, the orthodontist should be the first professional to be consulted when it comes to oral and maxillofacial treatment planning.”

Additional speakers and topics include:

  • Sean Carlson: Learn how to unlock the vault of digital diagnostics and incorporate a total-patient treatment approach. He will focus on the visualisation of the airway in particular and show how orthodontic treatment can improve outcomes in patients with temporomandibular disorders or obstructive sleep apnea.
  • Francesco Garino: Learn how to use the Carriere Motion Appliance as a break-through treatment strategy to correct challenging class II aligner cases.
  • Anil Idiculla: Learn how to align core philanthropic values within your practice and develop an unforgettable orthodontic experience.
  • Jep Paschal: Learn how digital intelligence can help increase clinical efficiencies, effectiveness, and patient satisfaction, plus why we should pay attention in this progressive era.
  • Thomas Shipley: Learn about his recent study using CBCT, which validates how the Carriere Motion Appliance repositions the mandible and expands the airway.


The event will be held in English and simultaneously translated into Spanish, Italian and French.
