Description

MRC’s International Summit 2020 is an excellent opportunity for Myobrace Members, Myobrace Certified Providers and other professionals to network with like-minded industry professionals and discover the latest developments in sleep dentistry and myofunctional orthodontic techniques, using MRC’s appliance systems. With a high prevalence of sleep disordered breathing problems in children and adults, opportunities now exist for practitioners to broaden their scope of treatment by offering avenues to practice sleep dentistry using MRC’s appliance systems.


During the three-day summit you will learn:
  • How MRC combines treatment of airway dysfunction, TMJ issues and malocclusion;
  • The role of orthodontics in paediatric sleep disordered breathing;
  • Relationship of tethered oral tissues to poor myofunctional habits and sleep disordered breathing;
  • About the causes of TMJ disorder and airway dysfunction;
  • How to diagnose and treat airway dysfunction, TMJ disorder and malocclusion;
  • The implementation of MRC’s protocols for efficient, effective and profitable treatment;
  • How to ensure good record taking for MRC treatment protocols;
  • Myofunctional Orthodontic arch expansion techniques;
  • About the company’s most recent advancements in appliance technologies and patient education programs;
  • Advanced techniques in Myofunctional Orthodontics;

Lecturers:

Dr Chris Farrell
Dr Chris Farrell BDS
Dr Farrell graduated from Sydney University in 1971 having gained a comprehensive knowledge of traditional orthodontics using the BEGG technique. Through clinical experience Dr Farrell took an interest in TMJ/TMD disorder and following further research he discovered the etiology of malocclusion and TMJ disorder was myofunctional which contradicted the established views of his profession. He founded Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC) in 1989 to develop myofunctional appliances that would prove effective in early orthodontic treatment.
