    Salzmann Lecture Criteria

    "The lecture should deal with orthodontics and cognate subjects as they relate to the provision of orthodontic care under community, state, federal and private programs in which the fee is paid in part or in whole by an agency other than the direct recipient of the orthodontic service.  The lectures may deal also with research and actual methods of practice as they apply to the individual patient regardless of the method of payment or nonpayment for the service."[1]
