Propel Lecture Given Internationally


BETHESDA, MARYLAND, MARCH 25, 2016 – Dr. Wayne Hickory recently returned from giving courses in Asia on Propel. Propel is an innovative, new orthodontic technique. This technique has been proven by studies at New York University to reduce orthodontic treatment time by 60% or more.

Propel, in combination with orthodontic treatment (Invisalign or braces), works to stimulate bone movement, using bone biology in order to have teeth move to their perfect, straight positions faster. Propel is performed by an orthodontist in-office and works by setting micro-perforations in highly strategized places in the gum line.

“Orthodontics has changed so much in the past 20 years – we never could have imagined accelerating treatment time by so much before this new technology,” said Dr. Wayne Hickory, orthodontist and owner of Bethesda Dental Specialties.

Last November, Dr. Hickory led an educational workshop for dentists in Jakarta, Indonesia. He also presented a course to the Singapore Association of Orthodontists. Due to the immense positive response to this advanced orthodontic technique, Dr. Hickory has been invited to give further courses and workshops on Propel and Invisalign. They will be held in Singapore for the Orthodontic Department at the University of Singapore. Dr. Hickory will also sponsor research on Propel orthodontic techniques at the National Dental Center in Singapore.

Propel is one of the many exciting orthodontic techniques offered at Bethesda Dental Specialties. For more information on Propel, visit our Accelerated Treatment page.
