    Mariano Zocche

    My interest for orthodontics started in 1977. After getting my diploma as a dental technician 1982, I started my own business creating an orthodontic laboratory in Vicenza where I have been running the lab from 1983. Afterwards, in 1992, I opened another lab in Verona.
    I held many presentations in several congresses and national meetings :
     Orthodontic devices for active and passive restraint
     Construction of the orthopaedic system of Bass
     The morpho corrector Frankel
     Third class lip-bumper
     Fast palatal habit-breakers and tongue retaining devices
     Orthodontic tongue devices
     Repositioning bites
     Verona Safety Device
     Construction of Frankel, Bionator and Andresen devices
     The activator Fox 3
     Liù expanders
     Bites and occlusal plates
    Some of these presentations appeared on some magazines of the sector. I cooperated with the University of Verona in order to research and develop devices for the distraction of implants and teeth. Moreover, I made research concerning the use of Ni-Ti springs in mobile orthodontics.
    I also took part to the experimentation of the Pro-slaider in cooperation with the company that produced it and the University of Padua. I hold several courses regarding the construction of functional devices and fixed braces at the University of Ferrara, in private centres and at my lab.
    Moreover, I implemented a device called UNICA-N-Z – currently in the testing phase with the University of Cagliari – for sleep apnea.
    I am the founder and a member of the Accademia Italiana di Ortodonzia Tecnica (Italian Academy of Orthodontics); I was the President of the academy in 2010 and the Secretary in 2012. I am also the founder and a member of the GTO Associazione Nazionale Tecnici Ortodontisti (National Association of Orthodontists) in which I was the Secretary and the President.
