This two-day course teaches a roadmap of how to facilitate Phase 2 ALF treatment,

EMPHASIZING THE COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE OSTEOPATHIC PHYSICIAN AND THE ALF DENTIST.

We clarify the difference of both the goals and the therapeutic process during phase 1 and 2 ALF treatment.

Exploring different possibilities, we discuss strategies to reach a positive outcome of phase 2 treatment when co-treating a patient.

We also address the common challenge of what the ALF dentist can do if the patient is not seeing an osteopath coincidently or how the osteopath can best support a patient that undergoes traditional orthodontic treatment.

As we assess live patients, we use our knowledge and palpatory skills of the cranial reference points to communicate with each other, optimize the ALF wire activation, and/or create design variations.

Focused on bringing the best results to your patients.
