Their award, entitled “Accuracy, Reliability and Clinical Feasibility of AI-assisted Remote Orthodontic Tooth Movement Monitoring Technology,” totals $30,000.
The two specific goals of this project are to validate Dental Monitoring’s ability to monitor artificial intelligence (AI)-assisted crown movement and explore the clinical viability of AI-assisted tooth root movement tracking.
Dr. Park will work as a principal investigator. Co-principal investigators are ATSU orthodontic residents Drs. Janet Kim and Andy Liu. Curtis Bay, PhD, ATSU-Arizona School of Health Sciences professor, biostatistics, and Institutional Review Board chair, will also work as a consultant.
Dr. Park also noted support from Kathy Rushlo, MHA, director of sponsored programs on ATSU’s Mesa, Arizona, campus.
Dr. Park’s article selected to receive 2021 CDABO Case Report of the Year Award
Jae Hyun Park, DMD, MSD, MS, PhD, chair of the postgraduate orthodontic program at A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH), recently received the 2021 College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics (CDABO) Case Report of the Year Award.
The award is given annually to authors of the best Case Report published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics (AJO-DO) during the previous year.
The article’s title was “Maxillary molar intrusion and transverse decompensation to enable mandibular single-jaw surgery with rotational setback and transverse shift for a patient with mandibular prognathism and asymmetry,” by Min-Su Kim, Sung-Hoon Lim, Seo-Rin Jeong, all of the Department of Orthodontics, College of Dentistry, Chosun University, Gwangju, Korea; and Dr. Park.
CDABO is composed of orthodontic clinicians who have passed all phases of the American Board of Orthodontics examination. The College established the award to recognize excellence in clinical orthodontics.
The award was scheduled to be presented at CDABO’s business meeting. Winners were also to be recognized at AJO-DO’s editorial board meeting. Both were to be held during the American Association of Orthodontists’ Annual Session, June 25-27, 2021, in Boston, and online. However, due to the pandemic, the in-person award ceremony was canceled.
