We Want Your Patients and Your Practice to Thrive

This seminar will show you non-retractive, AIRWAY-Centric treatments for patients of all ages combined with an interdisciplinary approach to airway health & overall patient well being.

Each guest lecture was specifically chosen to help you understand the medical & dental concepts, treatment protocols, marketing methods and team training techniques you need to achieve better patient outcomes, higher case acceptance rates & accelerated practice growth.

Topic: Can Orthodontics Cause OSA? Cure OSA? or Both?

William M Hang DDS MSD
Face Focused Orthodontics® - Agoura Hills, CA

Early in his career, Dr Hang, who was a traditionally trained orthodontist, saw serious limitations in esthetics and function with the orthodontics he had been taught. Having rejected retraction - in all of its obvious and not so obvious forms - he learned and developed innovative techniques to protect and enhance the airway while enhancing esthetics and function.

Patients from more than 25 states and several foreign countries have come to Dr. Hang for non-retractive orthodontics &/or resolution of their E.R.R.S.™ (Extraction Retraction Regret Syndrome™). In his presentation Dr. Hang will outline these nonretractive techniques as well as give a step-by-step protocol to reopen extraction spaces which often eliminates symptoms such as TMJ pain, facial pain, sunken lips, and SDB/OSA.

Dr. Hang has spoken on orthodontics, facial esthetics and airway locally, nationally, and internationally. He was awarded the AAPMD Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016 for his contribution to the field of airway orthodontics.
