Andrews completed orthodontic training at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF).  He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, past-president of the Southern California Component of the Edward H.

Andrews Foundation for Orthodontic Education.  He is a visiting lecturer at UCSF, an adjunct professor at West Virginia University and an adjunct associate professor at the University of North Carolina.  He has published articles and lectured worldwide about the Six Elements Orthodontic Philosophy and maintains a private practice limited to orthodontics in San Diego, California.

摘要
Topic:
Orthodontic Classification – Is it time to abandon Angle’s system?
Lecture Abstract:
For more than 100 years orthodontists have relied on Angle’s system of classification.  Despite its well-documented shortcomings, a viable new system has not been adopted.  Admirable attempts to modify or augment Angle’s system have been proposed but all share the crucial flaw of assuming that pre-treatment tooth positions and/or traditional cephalometric reference planes are reliable enough to use as landmarks for deciphering underlying problems.  Instead, a workable system of classification must be predicated on idealized tooth positions; only then can arches and jaw positions, be meaningfully described and categorized.  A new orthodontic classification system called the Six Elements Classification System©™ will be introduced in this lecture.  The new system classifies individual arches, not malocclusions.  Optimal individual arches, in turn, are the basis for classifying jaw and chin positions.  It is positionally-correct, three-dimensional, concise, and implies the most appropriate treatment.
