9:00 AM Mon, August 21, 2017 - 5:00 PM Sat, August 26, 2017
The Myobrace® System
Traditionally, the view among orthodontists was that mechanical symptom correction was the only means of treating genetically inevitable malocclusion. Focus has shifted from the technical and mechanical excellence of the past and dental professionals are increasingly looking towards more health driven, biological, evidence-based and effective approaches to correcting malocclusion. As the incidence of malocclusion in 21st century children approaches 100 per cent the demand for orthodontic treatment has never been greater.

Myobrace Certified Provider: 6 Day USA Summit 2017
MRC is dedicated to ensuring Myobrace® Certified Providers receive the support necessary to become an even more successful Myobrace® practitioner. The MRC Annual Global Summit is a great opportunity for MCP’s to network with other professionals, find out about the latest developments in appliances and myofunctional orthodontic techniques as well as learn about the most recent advances in patient education and compliance programs. The three day summit includes workshops regarding how to diagnose and treat airway dysfunction and TMJ disorder as well as advanced myofunctional orthodontic and expansion techniques course presented by MRC CEO and founder Dr. Chris Farrell and other leading practitioners.
Dr. Chris Farrell BDS Sydney - Through clinical experience, Dr. Farrell took an interest in TMJ / TMD Disorder and after further research discovered the etiology of malocclusion and TMJ Disorder was myofunctional, which contradicted the established views of his profession. Dr. Farrell founded MRC in 1989 to develop myofunctional appliances to be effective in early orthodontic treatment. The Trainer and Myobrace® appliance systems are now used by dentists and orthodontists in more than 100 countries.
Dr. German Ramirez-Yañez - For more than 20 years Dr. Ramirez-Yañez has worked to treat malocclusion in the early stages using functional appliances. He is well published, regarding functional appliances and the biological rationale for functional treatment, in peer reviewed journals and has written a book focused on looking in depth at craniofacial growth and development, the patho-physiology of functional disorders in the craniocervico-mandibular system and how the craniofacial structures are modified by functional appliances.
Dr. Barry Raphael - Dr. Raphael has close to three decades experience working as an orthodontic practitioner. In recent years, he has recognised the benefits myofunctional therapy provides to both his patients and his practice and has firsthand experience moving from a tooth-centric philosophy of orthodontic mechanotherapy to a muscle-centric philosophy of orofacial development.
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. Steven Olmos, DDS - Dr. Steven Olmos has been in private practice for more than 30 years, with the last 20 years devoted to research and treatment of craniofacial pain, temporomandibular disorder (TMD), and sleep-disordered breathing.

Dr. Ana Lorena Gomez - Dr. Ana Lorena Gómez has practiced general dentistry for 27 years. Her practice is exclusively orthodontics for 17 years. In 2009 she incorporated The Myobrace® System as a regular treatment for her patients. This resulted in an increase in the number of patients treated and better results in stability of cases and facial Harmony. Dr. Gómez shares her experience of how she changed the way of doing the initial diagnoses, incorporating the Myofunctional Evaluation of the patient, and by doing this, the problem of bad function can be addressed early and a Integral Preventive Orthodontic treatment is then implemented, changing the way the delivery of care was given.
Dr. Annelisse Pereyra - Dr. Annelisse Pèrez Martich got her dental degree from the Universidad Autonoma of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Got her Master degree in Orthodontics and Maxilofacial Orthopedics at the Centro de Estudios Superiores de Ortodoncia in Mexico D.F..
