In addition to orthodontic private practice, Dr. Samson holds formal faculty appointments at 6 USA postgraduate programs, is consultant to private pediatric dental and orthodontic practices, lectures extensively both in the United States and internationally.  In addition, he reviews orthodontic mechanics articles submitted for publication to The American Journal of Orthodontics and The Angle Orthodontist.  He was the invited guest Co-Editor of the Journal Seminars In Orthodontics: “Age Appropriate Orthodontics”, March and June, 2014 and author of the orthodontics mechanics chapter in the reference text book by Wiley Publications, “Recognizing and Correcting Developing Malocclusions: A Problem-Oriented Approaches to Orthodontics” – Prof. Eustáquio A. Araújo, Prof. Peter H. Buschang, 2016. Dr. Samson’s presentations emphasize clinical decisions based on science.



Gerry offers meaty clinical presentations spiced with a blend of biting wit, edgy humor, and substantially sauced with evidenced based literature. Always armed with unusually high quality hand out materials for seminar attendees, Gerry’s zany, brainy and engaging methods have made him one of today’s most popular educators.  Participants are certain to enjoy a unique educational, clinical experience that is both informative and motivating.
