The McLaughlin Philosophy

Goal-directed orthodontic treatment is extremely important. If the goals of treatment are not established and kept in mind from the initial diagnosis and treatment planning phase through the phase of retention, continuous errors can be made. Treatment then becomes inefficient and results will be disappointing. However, if treatment goals are constantly kept in mind, results will be much more consistent, and when minor compromises must occur, the reasons for these can be understood.
