Dr. Chris Farrell BDS Sydney - Dr. Chris 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. Dr Farrell founded Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC) in 1989 to develop myofunctional appliances that would prove effective in early orthodontic treatment. His Trainer and Myobrace® appliance systems are now used by orthodontists and dentists in more
than 100 countries.
Dr. Rohan Wijey B Oral H (Dent Sci), Grad. Dip. Dent O.M. - After completing dentistry at Griffith University in Queensland Australia Dr Wijey undertook further myofunctional study in the USA and achieved his Orofacial Myologist qualification. Since joining MRC in 2007 Dr Wijey has assumed responsibility for the organisation’s training program and presented courses and seminars around the world. Additionally, Dr Wijey has had articles regarding the aetiology of malocclusion, Class III treatment, early intervention and myofunctional orthodontics published in numerous dental, paediatric and orthodontic journals.
Dr Dan Hanson BDS UK - Dr Hanson became passionate about Early Incerceptive Orthodontics during time spent running a private practice. Since then Dr Hanson worked closely with MRC CEO Dr Chris Farrell learning MRC’s treatment modalities and as well as now using the MRC treatment system exclusively, has become an integral member of MRC’s clinical as well as lecturing team. Dr Hanson also runs breathing training programs for dental and non-dental clients to help reduce symptoms of sleep apnoea, asthma and allergies.
Ingrid Seibert O.M., B Oral Health (Dent Ther) - Since graduating from Griffith University, Ms Seibert has been predominantly involved with paediatric dentistry using a holistic approach. During her work, and after seeing many children with developing malocclusion, became interested in preventative forms of orthodontic treatment rather than focus solely on the symptoms. After achieving a qualification as an orofacial myologist in 2010 and continuing research into early treatment, Ms Seibert joined MRC Clinics® in 2011. She now shares her knowledge and clinical experience with South American orthodontists, dentists, speech pathologists and myofunctional therapists during educational lectures in her native Brazil.

When & Where
Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC)
MILLIONS of 21st century children require orthodontic intervention and increasingly, often as a result of their own orthodontic experience, parents are insisting on earlier, non-invasive, more stable treatment options. During the last 25 years Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC) has developed modern, innovative pre-orthodontic treatment to satisfy the demand of more than 5 million patients.
By changing poor myofunctional habits and encouraging correct natural facial development in children, MRC’s Myobrace System™ provides an opportunity for early orthodontic intervention without braces or extractions.
Rather than used fixed appliances to apply mechanical force and move teeth into position, The Myobrace System™ incorporates a removable Myobrace® appliance, worn for one hour each day and overnight, with a series of physical therapy activities for the face, completed daily.
With positive patient compliance, encouraged by MRC’s unique patient educational and motivational tools, The Myobrace System™ can achieve stable, easily reproducible and natural results while providing financial benefits for the practitioner and patient.
