Dr. Paul Pocock shows us a demonstration of his new 3D facial scanning technology.
Summer holidays are on the way and orthodontic problems can occur whether you are at home or away. Orthodontic emergencies can range from slight to traumatic.
They can be categorized into 3 different types:
- Annoying issues
- Problems causing pain, swelling or bleeding
- True emergencies involving trauma
SmilesbyPocock knows: mouth guards may feel like a nuisance to wear but they are a crucial piece of equipment when playing full-to-moderate contact sports, such as wrestling, ice and field hockey, basketball, martial arts, and soccer.
This November Dr Barry Grayson put on a Master Class In Naso-Alveolar Molding organized by Dr Paul Pocock an orthodontist on the B.C. Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Team
A total of 8 orthodontists, and pediatric dentists who have had sub-specialty training at NYU by Dr Grayson, met to be brought up to date with the latest developments in this area and to discuss difficult cases and exchange experiences. These practioners came from BC and Alberta.
Thank you for your support of my “Ride to Conquer Cancer’ this summer.
What a weekend!! It turned out to be the worst storm of the year - if not the decade - with torrential rain and winds gusting up to 115km per hour. Needless to say, we got soaked at the start. Then 10 km in - going downhill at 25kph - I hit a four foot high traffic cone. This sent my bike flying off the road onto a piece of rough ground. I was sure I was going down, but I was thinking, “At least I’ll be in a Canadian hospital!” Surprisingly I stayed upright… and managed to cycle back to the road to the amazement and cheers of the cyclists around me!
