Dr. Laura Goes Back To School

November 21st, 2019

This is me with Dr. Sean Carlson, a world-renowned orthodontist. He was lecturing on the importance of considering the airway in orthodontics at a conference I attended last weekend.  I loved the course on 3D Cone Beam Orthodontics because I gained great insight into how to use the awesome technology in our office.  Not only do I use the scanner to see well beyond what a traditional 2D radiograph shows in planning orthodontic treatment, I can also use the scanner to analyze the airway to prevent and resolve obstructive sleep apnea in my collaboration with ENT and sleep specialists.

The fun part was I went to San Francisco for training—right now Lineberry Orthodontics is the only office in the Treasure Valley with the 3D iCAT CBCT so I enjoyed seafood and sightseeing after classes!

 

I am always asking you how school is going and what you are learning.  Next time you come into the office, be sure and ask me what I am learning at school; even your orthodontist is still going to class and taking notes!

Back to School Fall

October 31st, 2019

This was a new back-to-school year for me.  My oldest child, Seth, headed off to college.  He is attending West Virginia University…. A long way from home.  But, since I too was  a mountaineer; I take comfort in the fact that he is studying in one of my favorite places!

Payton is a SENIOR this year.  I never imagined how fast my little girl would grow up.  She is beautiful and talented. I am so proud of all she has  accomplished!   Happy back-to-school to all the moms & kids out there!
