Professionals

Your patients deserve the most comprehensive care.

As a practitioner, you want to offer the best to your patients.  Trouble is, sometime the solution is specialized, and we didn't learn everything in school.  As an orthodontist, it wasn't in school where I learned about tongue-ties or airway and sleep disordered breathing.  It was only after my education, as a fully-practicing orthodontist, that I started noticing symptoms of family members and in myself.

After treating thousands of patients, in-depth research and attending many courses to broaden my education, I discovered that patients' lives, young and old, were being transformed.

It has now become my mission to give interested practitioners the information and tools they need to help their patients live healthier lives.

A large portion of the course fee will go to charity.
