IDS 2007


IDS 2007 will be a great opportunity for all to see a complete showcase of MRC.

Just when you thought MRC had come up with the best techniques for awareness and education it gets even better! MRC has seen yet again enormous growth since the last IDS in 2005, and again will be set to educate and support visitors world wide, all seeking to offer a better comprehensive approach to the health of their patients.

It has been exciting to see the development of a vast number of dentist's beginning to see a much bigger picture for their clinics. By offering habit correction at all stages of treatment, brackets and also alternate treatments such as the MYOBRACE®, simple expansion and TMJ treatment for patients with connected TMJ problems, clinics who were once using 40-50 appliances a year, now use 600-800 appliances. All this reflects on complete treatments that are easier, quicker, more stable and offer better faces, less TMJ and better posture.

Our booth at the IDS this year will have two rooms for meetings with dealers, 3 presentation areas and a large front display where Dr Chris Farrell will officially be announcing new support materials, videos, educational support, MRC Clinics and many new appliances. Dr Chris Farrell and his team will also be available to answer your questions and look at individual cases.

It will be great seeing so many people to update and support with all the latest MRC developments. See you this March at IDS 2007.

1st International Symposium on Myofunctional Correction and Cranio-Facial Development (ISMCCD)

The ISMCCD Myofunctional Symposium is a unique opportunity to experience an open forum with speakers and deligates. The conference format will be morning lectures followed by afternoon activities following a unique lunch opportunity – you will be able to “book a table” to dicuss in an open forum any topic with a speaker during the lunch period. This will be a unique and additional learning experience for all. Activity times will be optional excursions where informal discussions will be commonplace. All in the atmosphere of the Gold Coast broadwater.

The majority of children can expect to grow up with a malocclusion. In every country throughout the world you see children from the age of 4 years with underdeveloped arches and early signs of crowding. Is orthodontics using braces the cure for this epidemic? Generally, Dental professionals say yes.Every country has a large group of children with parents wanting more information about their child’s facial and dental development. However the Dental profession and health authorities are largely unmoved by the thought of early treatment due to their confusion regarding what to treat—the teeth, the jaws, the habits, or what really matters: the causes. Only with a sound knowledge of what is happening can dental professionals treat anything. Orthodontics has already demonstrated a century of failure to address the problem. There remain as many patients out of Orthodontic treatment with malocclusion as there are children waiting for treatment with century-old techniques.The ISMCCD Myofunctional Symposium will feature the leaders in the movement for change. For Decades Dr. John Mew has pushed for a change to growth guidance and Orthotropics. Dr. Chris Farrell and Dr. John Flutter have followed the philosophy into different approaches. Each conference speaker has been selected to present their unique variations on the early treatment approach. Be ready for the change. Attend the ISMCCD.
