LECTURERS:

Dr. Rohan Wijey B Oral H (Dent Sci), Grad. Dip. Dent O.M. -   Dr. Rohan Wijey is the Clinical Director and Senior Lecturer of Myofunctional Research Co (MRC) and CEO of the Myobrace® Pre-Orthodontic Centers. His myofunctional orthodontics journey began with MRC in 2007 under Dr. Chris Farrell's tutelage, and he has since lectured across 5 continents and has had numerous articles published in orthodontic and paediatric journals around the world. During his time at MRC, he has seen the worldwide acceptance of myofunctional orthodontics grow rapidly.  Dr. Wijey has also trained as a myofunctional therapist with the International Association of Orofacial Myology (IAOM) in Colorado, USA and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Despite his heavy lecturing schedule, he remains very much involved in clinical practice, dividing his time between Myobrace® and myOSA® centres owned and operated by MRC in Australia.

 Vanee Ganesaratnam O.M. (Orofacial Myologist) - Ms. Vanee Ganesaratnam is a foundation member of the Myobrace® Pre-Orthodontic Center, and has worked alongside Dr. Chris Farrell (MRC CEO and founder) since 2005 to develop its philosophy and novel approach to early myofunctional orthodontic treatment. Ms Ganesaratnam's myofunctional education, and consequent orthodontic re-education, began in Colorado, USA, where her eyes were opened to the benefits and potential of myofunctional therapy. Ms Ganesaratnam gained her qualifications as an orofacial myologist in 2009, which was approved by the International Association of Orofacial Myology (IAOM). Ms Ganesaratnam learned how simple exercises for the orofacial muscles produced significant improvements in not only a child’s malocclusion but also facial development and overall health. She has now dedicated her efforts to training other professionals around the world in this field, based on her experiences from the Myobrace® Pre-Orthodontic Center. Ms Ganesaratnam is currently completing the prestigious Sydney University Master's Program in Sleep Medicine, and will provide an expert insight into oro-pharyngeal exercises used to treat Sleep Disordered Breathing and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

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.
