Team i-CAT Heralds Record Success And Participation At The AAO Annual Session



Attendees at the AAO meet and greet “Their Story” participants and support the Milo Foundation, exploring how to save human canine teeth as well as having some fun with furry friends. 

Hatfield, PA (June 10, 2015) i-CATTM, a brand of the KaVo Kerr Group, is proud of the success and engaging participation at the 2015 American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) Annual Session in May. The exhibit featured i-CAT’s latest “Their Story” featuring Dr. Sean Carlson and his patient Natalie. As part of his treatment armamentarium to save her transmigratory impacted canines in the mandibular jaw, Dr. Carlson used detailed information gathered from the i-CAT scan. At the meeting, orthodontists were able to meet Dr. Carlson and Natalie and learn about how i-CAT scans can aid in diagnosis so that dentist can treatment plan to allow patients to retain their full complement of teeth.More information on Their Story is at http://stories.i-cat.com/.

Also at this meeting, i-CAT hosted the Milo Foundation, an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter in Northern California. Attendees were able to take photos with rescue dogs onsite to raise donations and help promote pet care awareness. Dr. Carlson’s case, which related to saving canine teeth in humans meshed well with the humanitarian effort of helping the animals through the Milo Foundation. This effort raised $3,000 for education, adoption services, and sanctuary for many types of and age of animals at the foundation.
Outreach Coordinator for the Milo Foundation, John Fonseca said, “What a success it was for the Milo Foundation to join with i-CAT at the AAO Annual Session! Our Founder and Director Lynne Tingle and I enjoyed being there with the rescue dogs and meeting so many animal lovers who supported our joint efforts to raise much needed funds as well as awareness about animal rescue. Most special was to see the kindness and affection the attendees showered on the Milo dogs, who lapped up the attention! Thank you for helping Milo and the amazing beings that simply need a chance in a loving home.”
Jessica Kachmar, Marketing Manager for i-CAT, added, “Dr. Carlson and Natalie were so inspiring at our booth. The success of her treatment resulted from a combination of Dr. Carlson’s knowledge and care, effort and energy from Natalie, and quality 3D cone beam scans from i-CAT. We were also so pleased to be able to help raise money for the Milo Foundation.”
