The Great Orthodontic-Periodontic Relationship
Exploring the Orthodontic-Periodontal Interface
Speaker: Dr Derek Mahony
With the rise of clear aligners and aesthetically pleasing orthodontic brackets, adults are increasingly seeking orthodontic treatment. The relationship between orthodontics and periodontology are diverse and complex. Prior to embarking on orthodontic treatment, it’s essential to establish optimal periodontal health in these patients. Effective management of perio-ortho patients demands a strong collaboration between the general dental practitioner and the orthodontist.
Join leading Orthodontist Dr Derek Mahony for a webinar focused on the management of periodontal disease in orthodontic patients, the best orthodontic treatment available for perio compromised patients, and how to handle complications that may arise.
- Periodontal assessment prior to orthodontic treatment to determine the status of the patients’ periodontal health
- The best treatment options to manage periodontal disease before and during orthodontic treatment
- The use of micro-implants, TADS in orthodontics
- Team collaboration in managing the patient and their treatment outcomes
Dr Mahony will present a clinical case study so come with your questions at the ready! This is a not to be missed webinar for all practitioners involved in orthodontics and periodontics.

About the Speaker
Dr Derek Mahony
Derek Mahony is a Sydney based Specialist Orthodontist who has spoken to thousands of practitioners about the benefits of interceptive orthodontic treatment. Early in his career Dr Mahony learned from leading clinicians the dramatic effect functional appliance therapy can afford patients in orthodontic treatment. He has been combining the fixed and functional appliance approach ever since. His lectures are based on the positive impact such a combined treatment approach has had on his orthodontic results and the benefits this philosophy provides from a practice management viewpoint.
Dr Mahony has been seeing an average of 250 patients per week for the last decade and has gained a vast amount of experience which he can pass on to clinicians so that they can come to appreciate the key elements of his combined treatment approach. He currently has over 3000 orthodontic patients in active treatment and has been a key note speaker at the International Orthodontic Summit meetings, the International Association of Orthodontics meetings, and the American Association of Functional Orthodontics meetings. He is considered by some to be the "next leading lecturer on functional/fixed orthodontics." Dr Mahony will provide a stimulating presentation for clinicians wishing to advance their treatment results via a simplistic step by step approach.
