Panel Discussion: Dental and physical therapy collaborative management for patients going through airway orthodonic treatment

Orthodontic treatment of the airway often includes repositioning and/or guided growth of the maxilla, mandible and soft tissue structures. It has been found that patients tolerance and outcomes are much improved when working collaboratively with physical and myofunctional therapy. This panel discussion will focus on evaluation and intervention strategies related to treatment of this population.
Participants will have a better understanding of how physical therapists and dentists are problem solving and working together to help improve patient outcomes for this patient population.
