Dr. Andrey Tikhonov from Russia has opened the second day program of the 2nd MENA Symposium with his lecture “Damon System Truths versus Myths” during which he said that “Orthodontics is about changing people destiny, so it is not only about straightening teeth.” The lecture of Dr. Tikhonov was followed by Dr. Philippe Van Steenberghe on elastics and how important they are under the title’’ Early elastics a new world to explore ‘’. The day was finished with two lectures of Dr. Jeff Kozlowski’s Digital Orthodontics showing how to use Insignia and how passive self-ligation can help enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of treatment for your practice and patient.
