Dr. Anoop Sondhi, D.D.S., M.S., USA

Dr. Anoop Sondhi received his dental degree from the Indiana University School of Dentistry, and his post-graduate certificate and M.S. in orthodontics from the University of Illinois in 1977. Following his graduation, he was on the graduate faculty of the Department of Orthodontics at Indiana University. During his full-time academic appointment at Indiana University, he maintained a part-time private practice. Since 1988, he has been in full-time private practice in Indianapolis, and continues as a Visiting Professor for several graduate programs in orthodontics. He has presented seminars and continuing education courses to several dental and orthodontic organizations in the United States, and has been invited to give courses in Canada, Central America, South America, Europe, the Far East, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

In his orthodontic practice, Dr. Sondhi devotes a significant amount of his work to the development of effective and efficient treatment systems, indirect bonding, interceptive treatment of complex malocclusions, and the orthodontic management of temporomandibular disorders. In addition, he teaches courses on practice management, office organization, and staff management. Dr. Sondhi has also served as a consultant to the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.
Dr. Sondhi and his wife, Rani, live in Indianapolis. They have four children, ages 29, 27, 25 and 19. Anoop’s major hobby is flying. He has a Commercial Pilot’s License. For fun, he enjoys doing aerobatics, and simulated combat flying.

Dr. Sondhi has served as a consultant to the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, as well as the Journal of Craniomandibular Disorders, Facial and Oral Pain. He is a member of the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists, and has served these organizations at the state, regional, and national levels.

Contemporary Orthodontic Treatment with Self-Ligating Appliances and Variable Prescription Orthodontics

Lecture: 04 October 2018

This seminar will review key principles that are necessary to effectively understand ligated and self-ligated appliance systems in an orthodontic practice. In addition to a detailed demonstration of the treatment of different types of orthodontic challenges, the seminar will include a number of the clinical and management pearls that are critical to effectively implement these treatment systems into your office. The lecture will be supplemented by live video taped demonstrations of some of the archwire and bracket placement procedures.

The Impact of Ligated and Non-Ligated Treatment Mechanics on Treatment Results and Clinical Efficiency
Treatment sequences with ligated and non-ligated appliances will be contrasted to assess the impact of different bracket systems on treatment results, as well as efficiency in archwire sequencing. Some of the differences in treatment mechanics when treating with ligated and non-ligated brackets will be reviewed and analyzed.

Arch Wire Sequencing for the Management of Extraction and Non-Extraction Orthodontic Treatment
  1. The specific advantages of managing extraction cases with self-ligation.
  2. Differentiation between segmental canine retraction, and en masse anterior retraction.
  3. Clinical “pearls” for the effective management of Clarity™ SL and SmartClip™ Appliance treatment systems.

Self-Ligation & Variable Prescription Orthodontics: The Next Paradigm Shift

Lecture: 04 October 2018

Coupled with the efficiency that the SmartClip Self-Ligating System brings to orthodontic treatment is the enhanced effectiveness made possible by the use of Variable Prescription Orthodontics. It has become increasingly evident to the orthodontic practitioner that a standard selection of anterior torques is not going to provide the level of excellence that is desired. We will review a number of defining details that would affect the clinician’s choice of expressed anterior torque, such as extractions, ethnic differences in dentofacial characteristics, heavy marginal ridges, excessive occlusal wear on adult patients, etc. Given the rapid incorporation of digital technology into orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning, it has become quite clear that a more precise choice of appliances will allow the clinician to deliver treatment that is both effective and more efficient.

4 CE Credits | HAAD 3.75 CME | DHA 2 CME
  1. Clinical Examination
  2. Radiographic Analysis
  3. Differential Diagnosis
  1. Biomechanics of the Temporomandibular Joint
    1. Function and Dysfunction
    2. Splint Construction and Management
  2. Phase II Corrective Procedures
    1. Orthodontic Treatment
    2. Restorative Treatment Options
At various points during the presentation, references will be made to the basic biological principles of Temporomandibular Joint function and dysfunction. Information obtained through electromyography, arthroscopy, and other current clinical research will be presented. This information will be introduced as necessary to help explain the logic of certain clinical observations and procedures.

  1. Clinical Examination - A comprehensive explanation of the method for conducting a clinical examination for the patient with a Temporomandibular disorder, supplemented with videotaped demonstrations.

  2. Radiographic Analysis - Explanation and discussion of the radiographic procedures employed for imaging the Temporomandibular Joints.

  3. Differential Diagnosis - The different diagnostic entities possible in TM disorders will be identified and discussed. The salient diagnostic features of Myofascial pain, different types of Intracapsular Derangements, Occlusal Dysfunctions, and Pathologic Disorders will be demonstrated. Detailed discussion of the specific diagnostic procedures for establishing specific diagnostic profiles prior to instituting definitive therapy. Indications and procedures for obtaining consultations from other specialists - neurologists, ENT, psychologists, etc., will be explained.

  4. Occlusal Splints – Description and discussion of the various splints used for TMJ therapy today. The rationale behind different splint designs and methods of construction will be analyzed, with a discussion of their relative advantages and disadvantages. The diagnostic, therapeutic, and corrective functions of splints will be differentiated.

  5. Phase II Corrective Procedures - The indications and contra-indications for different post-orthotic treatment modalities.
    1. Orthodontic Treatment
      1. A discussion of the indications and contra-indications for orthodontic treatment for patients with temporomandibular disorders.
      2. Documenting the need for orthodontic treatment. Incorporation of information derived from temporomandibular joint radiographs into the orthodontic treatment plan.
      3. Procedures for transitioning from orthotics to orthodontic treatment.
    2. Anterior Interferences – Their impact on temporomandibular disorders and orthodontic finishing procedures
