Introduction to Myofunctional Orthodontics
During MRC's introductory course, attendees will learn how myofunctional appliances can be used to treat soft tissue dysfunction, as well as receive advice regarding how myofunctional orthodontics can offer their practice a profitable alternative to traditional orthodontic techniques.
Attendees will also be presented with information regarding a wide range of MRC's appliances, as well as receive information about profitably managing a clinic solely devoted to myofunctional orthodontic treatment.
MRC’s expert presenters offer doctors and their staff a practical and modern approach to diagnosing poor myofunctional habits and treating the underlying causes of malocclusion. This course also include case studies, task delegation and workshops explaining and demonstrating the various MRC systems and appliances.
