William Harrell, DMD 3D Facial Biomarker Detection of Airway Issues
March 13, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
85% of patients suffering with a “hidden” airway problem are not being recognized. Many do not know that their airway and quality of their sleep impacts their health, performance, learning and development. It is not something that will be “grown out of”. Dr. Harrell has developed a system of for recognizing the biomarkers of airway issues using 3D photos and CBCTs. Both practitioner and the public can become more aware of the presence of these biomarkers leading to earlier care. In this presentation he will share information about his exciting novel technique.
Dr. William (Bill) Harrell graduated from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry in Birmingham, AL in 1975 and completed his orthodontic residency at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1977. He is in private orthodontic practice in Alexander City, Alabama. He is a Board Certified Orthodontist (ABO) in 1989 in also certified in Dental Sleep Medicine.
