This year’s meeting was host to more than 250 orthodontist teams and exhibitors. Planet Holly- wood Resort, in the heart of the Vegas Strip, is the perfect host venue for this progressive-focused meeting. Opening the lecture series was this year’s “VOICE of Excellence” lecturer, Dr. Kate Vig, past department chair of the Ohio State University orthodon- tic department. She was followed by a blend of well-established and new speakers. OrthoVOICE also hosted a special series highlighting three recent-graduate board presentations. Each resident gave a 15-minute pre- sentation followed by a 10-minute question-and-answer session with the presentation attendees. Educational offerings in ‘relaxing, fun’ environment “Of all the meetings we attend each fall, OrthoVOICE consistently has the best speakers and topics available to attendees,” said one OrthoVOICE ex- hibitor. With its focus on creating a relaxing and fun environment, the OrthoVOICE meeting also offers a dy- namic educational component that is hard to beat among fall meetings, or- ganizers said. Having hosted some of the industry's top educators as part of the “VOICE of Excellence Series,” OrthoVOICE has kicked off its meeting with names such as Dr. Bill Proffit, Dr. Lysle Johnston and Vig. Each has been followed by a creative mix of company-sponsored and OrthoVOICE-invited speakers, cre- ating a well-rounded and progressive set of topics, organizers said. “The takeaway from OrthoVOICE has made a tremendous impact on my practice,” said one of this year’s attend- ees. “Each year brings new ideas that cause me to think differently about growing my practice.” 2014 meeting VOICE of Excellence speaker announced OrthoVOICE is already focusing on the 2014 rendition of the meeting. Dr. Henry Fields was recently announced as next year’s “VOICE of Excellence” speaker, and OrthoVOICE will an- nounce the rest of its 2014 speakers and topics in early 2014. OrthoVOICE also announced some- thing new for next year’s meeting: Two groups will be hosting seminars alongside OrthoVOICE, creating added value for OrthoVOICE attendees. Ortho Classic and Orthotown will be offering their own meetings the day before Or- thoVOICE and will provide attendees greater variety beyond a traditional user meeting.
