MRC Latin Summit

MRC’s Latin Summit will teach you the myofunctional evaluation system to identify breathing and myofunctional problems limiting facial growth and causing malocclusion, as well as provide you with the ability to treat myofunctional problems evident in almost every child.

Participants will be introduced to MRC’s range of products and services that complement orthodontics. They will also learn to use the Myofunctional Orthodontic Evaluation (MOE) to evaluate their patients, the appliance selector to provide the appropriate myofunctional appliance, and adjunctive activities to maximize treatment.

Our curated staff will guide you in transitioning your practice by integrating systems to ensure that your patients are diagnosed early, treated effectively, and have a stable, healthier future after completing the program.


  • Identifying, evaluation and diagnosis of the underlying causes of malocclusion;
  • A comprehensive guide for the implementation of the Myobrace® for Braces appliance series into your practice;
  • Diagnosis and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and breathing disorders in adults and children;

Key Presenters

Dr Chris Farrell

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 aetiology of malocclusion and TMJ disorder was myofunctional, contradicting 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 around the world.

Dr Barry Raphael

Dr Raphael is an orthodontist and founder of the Raphael Center for Integrative Orthodontics in Clifton, New Jersey.  His focus on 'big picture' orthodontics started with his introduction to Chris Farrell and The Myobrace® System in 2008. Now, Dr. Raphael offers a wide range of integrative techniques designed to help children grow in the best possible way and to help adults find wellness, not just symptomatic relief.  He teaches these concepts at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, at the Raphael Center for Integrative Education, nationally and internationally. Dr Raphael is working closely with the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) to move the practice of dentistry forward in the 21st century.

Dr Ana Lorena Gómez

Dr Ana Lorena Gómez has practiced general dentistry for 27 years. Her practice was exclusively orthodontics for 17 years, however, she incorporated The Myobrace® System as a regular treatment for her patients in 2009. 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 myofunctional evaluations and, in doing so, was able to address the problem of bad function earlier and as part of an integral preventive orthodontic treatment, changing the way the delivery of care was given.

Dr Ben Miraglia

Dr Ben Miraglia, a graduate of SUNY at the Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, Buffalo, New York, is a member of the ADA, AGD, NYSAGD, and the Ninth District Dental Society. He has been in private practice for 21 years, and currently maintains a family practice in Mount Kisco, NY, at Browne Goetz & Miraglia, with a focus on full-mouth restorative dentistry.
