Dr. Panaghiotis “Panos” Bazos received his DDS from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry in 2000. He served as an Assistant Professor at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC, Division of Primary Oral Health, Los Angeles, CA. from 2005-2007, mentoring undergraduate dental students in the disciplines of Dental Morphology and Restorative Dentistry under the supervision of Dr. Pascal Magne, the Don and Sybil Harrington Foundation Chair in Esthetic Dentistry, Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC. Upon returning to Europe, he maintained a private practice limited to aesthetic and restorative dentistry in Athens, Greece. In 2011 he founded the Bio-EmulationTMGroup which constitutes a global think tank that promotes clinical excellence in dental restorative techniques when combined with interdisciplinary approaches. From 2013-2016 he completed his postgraduate specialist degree (MClinDent) in Orthodontics and Dento-facial Orthopaedics at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland and has qualified with the Royal Colleges of Surgeons of Edinburgh (MOrth RCS Edin). He is the inventor and the developer of the polar_eyes reflective cross polarisation filter and recently the co-developer of the OneBite Evolution maxillary plane cranio-facial registration apparatus. Currently he resides with his family on the Peloponnese in the coastal town of Aigio, Greece and maintains practices limited to Orthodontics and Restorative Dentistry in Athens, Patras and Aigio.

ENTER THE CUBE: CRANIOFACIAL SPATIAL ARRANGEMENT REDEFINED VIA THE BASELINE
Enter the Cube; Cranio-facial Spatial Arrangement Redefined via the BaseLine.
The diagnostic template serves as the point of origin for any facially generated treatment plan in the modern restorative practice. Thus an accurate and precise maxillo-mandibular three dimensional spatial registration will provide the dental team with a flawless workflow, maximizing efficiency and effectiveness, when working in either the conventional (manual) or contemporary (digital) modes.
The position of the occlusal plane in the patient and the articulator is an essential link for achieving the functional and esthetic goals of the anticipated treatment plan. Patient specific anatomic craniofacial landmarks within the frontal, transverse and sagittal planes will be thouroughly explored and analyzed.
Participants will learn how to mitigate transfer errors and increase accuracy via specific BaseLine driven photographic and radiographic protocols in addition to utilising the OneBite Evolution in an analogue or digital workflow, aiding both clinicians and technicians to systematically manage the proper spatial orientation of the maxillary cast.
OBJECTIVES: At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Patient specific soft tissue land mark driven portrait photography.
Customized maxillary arch registration according to the BaseLine.
Understand the implications of accurate 3D transfer of the occlusal plane.
