33 RECYCLING: PENNY WISE — POUND FOOLISH The recycling of orthodontic attachments is problematic. The original use of the attachment, its removal from the tooth, and the recycling process all impart irreparable damage. This damage compromises the attachment’s ability to provide precision tooth control which costs the practice far more than the attachment is worth. Clinicians who have used recycled SPEED brackets have bitterly found that it was “penny wise but pound foolish”. TRANSFER PATIENTS A large number of orthodontists throughout the world are now using the SPEED Appliance. If you have a patient who is moving and would like to know the name of someone using the SPEED Bracket in a particular city, please contact SPEED System™ Orthodontics. Transferring patients appreciate being sent to an orthodontist already using the appliance. If the orthodontist to whom you are referring the patient is not familiar with the SPEED System™, we will, upon request, send a no-charge instruction manual and/or an instructional DVD. SPEED COURSES SPEED System™ Orthodontics frequently sponsors courses on the SPEED Technique. “Introductory”, “Intermediate” and “Advanced” courses are offered in a variety of locations throughout the world. These courses, conducted by experienced SPEED users, combine lectures and, in the case of our Introductory Course, typodont exercises to provide attendees with the best theoretical and practical knowledge available on the SPEED Technique. Topics included are Bracket Placement, SPEED Mechanotherapy (including recommended techniques for treating all types of malocclusions), SPEED Clinical Tips, etc… in a format that is easily translated for use in clinical practice.
