Traditional orthodontics is a mechanical activity to straighten teeth. Quantum orthodontics works with the body to heal itself. Two pursuits as different as Newtonian and Quantum physics.
The illustrious Dr. Gavin James has been a practicing orthodontist for 40 years. Early on in his career, he redefined the goals of orthodontics to go well beyond the teeth. He will show you an approach to straightening teeth using the ALF appliance that will also improve overall health in a way that is as revolutionary to orthodontics as Einstein's theory was to Newtonian physics.
This course is for those who want to learn more about the ALF appliance or those who already know how to use it but want to extend their knowledge by learning from one of the world's premier practitioners and teachers. This course is not especially good for practitioners who know nothing about "big picture" orthodontics.
This is a hands-on course with patient demonstrations. There is an additional fee for a sample ALF that can be used for practice and patient demonstrations. Please purchase that model 5-6 weeks in advance to have it available at the course. If you don't want to purchase a model, you can bring a sample from your office, or just watch.
