The Combined TMJ, OSA & Myofunctional Orthodontic Advanced Course

9:00 AM Fri, November 16, 2018 - 5:00 PM Sat, November 17, 2018

MRC AUS 2 Day Course: Combining TMJ, OSA & Myofunctional Orthodontics Advanced

MRC will be holding one of it's first Seminars with it's new appliance range the myOSA which helps to regulate breathing and people who suffer from TMJ pain while sleeping.

Treating the causes:
Rather than just focus on alleviating the symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB), the philosophy behind the myOSA® myofunctional sleep appliance range is aimed at treating the upper airway and neuromuscular dysfunction that are the fundamental causes of SDB. The myOSA® range functions by posturing the lower jaw slightly forward, correcting tongue position and opening the bite, which opens the airway, regulates breathing and helps the wearer to sleep well the natural way.

LECTURERS:

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. -   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®.

Jess Maidman has been in the dental industry since 2006 and joined Myofunctional Research Co. in 2012. Her passion for improving the health of all children combined with her lively enthusiastic personality and years of experience in paediatric dentistry make her a wonderful addition to the MRC team. After working in Myobrace® Pre-Orthodontic Centres for the past five years, Jessica is now the Senior Educator for Myobrace®, offering support, education and training to Myobrace® members and assisting practitioners to implement The Myobrace® System. Jessica is also apart of the MRC lecturing team and is passionate about sharing the Myobrace® philosophy around the world.
