The Iconic Bugatti

Written by

If someone asked me whether I’d like to make a journey in a Bugatti Veyron, the answer would be a yes! But what if the driver of the Bugatti lacked experience? Would it not be better to reach the destination in a superbly driven Mini?

This was the question I posed to a group of orthodontists from around the world who gathered in Lake Como for the European Society of Lingual Orthdontists annual conference.

My point was that the Bugatti Veyron is undoubtedly alluring. It can even be said to have torque, a topic much loved by orthodontists! But with an inexperienced driver at the wheel, this top end car is considerably less alluring. I used this analogy to illustrate that the system used by an orthodontist is only as effective as the clinician managing the patient’s treatment. The ability to drive different cars on different roads in all types of weather is comparable to the ability of an orthodontist to manage the patient’s treatment with the system best suited to their malocclusion.

The title of my talk was Lingual orthodontics – solving problems, finding solutions. For a bit of fun, I completed my talk by playing a little bit from the song ‘Fully dressed orphans’ from the musical Annie get your gun, the refrain: It’s what you wear from ear to ear and not from head to toe.
