The Evolution of Osteopathy and Dentistry 



“The dental traumatic type of lesion opens a field of new possibilities to members of the osteopathic profession. It should interest the dentist as well. Dentists possess special anatomical knowledge and constructive surgical skill in relation to the facial bones, and this type of lesion invites cooperation by the two professions.”
-Dr. W.G. Sutherland

ALF Training - Level 2 

Schedule: TBA

McLean, VA

These courses are an interdisciplinary course taught with Dr. James Bronson DDS and Kathy Winslow RDH, MFT

You practice in a dynamic and rigorous field. While keeping clinically current is imperative, it is expected. "Clinically current" does not give your practice the edge over surrounding practices. The edge goes to one who can acquire the skills necessary to observe and diagnose symptoms with a unique perspective, manage a more effective and efficient practice.

So the need to keep professionally current is obvious but the questions are when and how do I start? The ALF Educational Institution was made specifically for dentists, osteopaths, and PT's who want to evolve their practice into one with transformative and healing qualities.  Yes, our course is an opportunity for CME 1A credits, but more importantly, the knowledge obtained in this course will help you treat the complicated patient with craniofacial dysfunction.
