Simplicity System Offers Innovative Way to Maximize Orthodontics in Your General Dentistry Practice

April 6th, 2010 · No Comments

(March 29, 2010) Vista, CA – Beginning in 2009, Lancer Orthodontics has teamed with former IAO President, Dr. Thomas Hughes D.D.S., to form a new approach to orthodontics called The Simplicity System.

This new strategy is geared to help those doctors who already have some experience in orthodontics but have been unable to make this area of their practice efficient, effective, and profitable. The Simplicity System focuses on teaching practitioners how to incorporate orthodontics into their practice in order to both increase patients and revenue.

Eliminating on-shelf inventory, The Simplicity System consists of merely two wires for the entire treatment, a fixed lingual arch and indirect bonding trays. This kit allows doctors to treat approximately 90% of all orthodontic cases including crowded and narrow arch cases. As Dr. Hughes explains, “this systematic approach to Orthodontics allows me to focus on treating my patients without having to stress about product, organization or long term results.”

Starting this summer, Dr. Hughes is offering CE courses on The Simplicity System nationwide. The first of these courses will occur May 7th in San Diego and May 8th in San Francisco. There will also be courses offered in Dallas, Phoenix, Detroit, Chicago, Orlando, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Denver, Washington D.C., New York, Seattle and Costa Mesa. For more information and details regarding the course schedule and The Simplicity System in general, consult the brand new website at

The new website features information about Simplicity including video demonstrations and case presentations. Furthermore, product order forms, bonding prescription forms, and model analysis of information are available via the site.
