Dear Colleagues, members of the Dental and Medical professions and educators:
RE: Documentary Video: “OJW for Dental Professionals”
The American Dental Association (ADA) has become cognizant of the fact that dental professionals have expertise that the overweight-obese could benefit from. The November 2010 cover story of the Journal of the American Dental Association attests to this thesis according to a massive survey that was carried out among dental professionals.
I am one of the 4% who have engaged in providing these services for the past twelve years, and have done so with a keen sense of satisfaction for myself and my patients.
“Orthodontic Jaw Wiring for Dental Professionals”, is a documentary film I produced showing the protocol for OJW that will air worldwide on a date to be announced.
This 28-minute Documentary video is based on twelve years of clinical experience, and evidence from a questionaire survey completed in 2009. See unpublished manuscript:
Orthodontic Jaw Wiring: The Dental Professional’s Role in Weight Control for Compulsive Overeating Leading to Obesity
Please forward this note to other colleagues who are interested in this topic.
I welcome your response.
