Why Dentists Choose the CFOO Solution

In 1978, I founded Clinical Foundation of Orthopedic & Orthodontics & TMD out of frustration, quite frankly. 

General university courses were completely missing the boat on teaching dental students about the importance of maxillo-facial orthopedics in treating patients with developmental issues relating to the oral facial complex.

So, I designed courses to educate dentists of all ages and experience levels that focused specifically on the general development and growth of the human jaw… as well as how size and position relates to proper joint function and overall good oral health.

I’ve traveled the world for the past 40+ years teaching dentists the proper way to straighten their patient’s crooked teeth using orthopedics… and creating beautiful smiles.

Once you understand how jaw development affects facial bone and teeth development, you’ll see how antiquated the traditional practice of orthodontic treatment is today, and why it needs to change immediately.

That’s our mission at the CFOO…

We want to empower you with the knowledge and support to diagnose and treat your patients orthopedically… and then deliver orthodontic care in a way that is consistent with their natural oral-facial development.

When you do this with our help, you will be an Orthopedic & Orthodontic Treatment Specialist.
