You are beginning to think that quality care is becoming equated with rapid treatment completion. The speaker of the seminar you are attending proudly presents an array of cases that were completed in 14 to 18 months of treatment time. He lauds the modern methods of accelerating tooth movement, including advances in appliances, accelerating devices, and various forms of surgical adjunct. As he projects his slides depicting final treatment results, you can’t help thinking that the finishing and detailing that you’ve consistently tried to provide were lacking. In many of his cases, buccal segment interdigitation is insufficient, anterior alignment is inconsistent, and the second molars are not controlled.
