Another milestone achieved by the Association of Philippine Orthodontists (APO), the Philippines’ only recognized specialty society for Orthodontics by no less than the Philippine Board of Dentistry. For its 10th Biennial National Orthodontic Congress held last August 1-2, 2016 at SMX Aura, Taguig City, APO presented the very timely and constantly significant topic of managing difficult cases, with its theme: Mind the Gap: Simple Biomechanics for Difficult Orthodontic Cases. This theme is specially significant to all practicing Orthodontists because we always encounter cases that turn out to be more difficult than what we have anticipated.
