ABO Educators Symposium | November 11, 2023
The 2023 ABO Educators Symposium was dedicated to honoring Dr. Peter H. Buschang, who is a Regents Professor Emeritus at the Texas A&M University College of Dentistry. Prior to moving to Dallas, Dr. Buschang had held the position of a National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Orthodontics, University of Connecticut Health Science Center. Then, he became a Fonds de recherche du Quebec (FRSQ) scholar in the Human Growth Research Center at the University of Montreal. In 1988, he accepted a faculty position in the Department of Orthodontics at the Baylor College of Dentistry, which is now known as the Texas A&M University College of Dentistry. Dr. Buschang’s research interests primarily focus on craniofacial growth, developmental adaptations to orthodontic and surgical treatments, and oral-motor function. He has a remarkable record of publishing over 330 peer-reviewed articles, three books and numerous book chapters. Additionally, he has delivered over 200 invited lectures and workshops and served as an associate editor for several journals. Dr. Buschang is the only person to hold honorary memberships in both the AAO and the Edward H. Angle Society. In recognition of his services, he was awarded the American Association of Orthodontists Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019. Dr. Buschang’s residents honored him in 2022 by establishing the Peter H. Buschang Endowed Chair in Orthodontics.
Dr. Allen Moffitt, Past President of the ABO, demonstrates the manual measurements for Discrepancy Index and the Cast-Radiograph Evaluation. These videos were recorded in March, 2011. Refer to the Discrepancy Index instructions and Grading System for Cast-Radiograph Evaluation for any updates.
