When I was at USC dental school, I was fascinated by the dynamic changes in the oral cavity and related structures. It became my mission to constantly seeking to understand more about the human body and the necessary procedures to achieve the best possible results for the individual.
This mission was not carried out until after I had completed 6 years of practice in general dentistry and then going back to University of Pennsylvania to pursue my training in orthodontics.
Over the course of my career, I have always been thinking about this mission and my interest in all phases of orthodontics. More recently (for the last ten years), there were two main topics that were of interest me:
1) How to treat cases with compromised bone support?
2) How orthodontic treatment affects patient with compromised airway?
Fortunately, after long term efforts, our office has been recognized by the local community and I have two publications in The International Journal of the MEAW Technic and Research Foundation in December,2006 and in the PCSO Bulletin Spring 2012 related to orthodontic treatment for compromised (limited bone support) cases.
You are very much welcome to visit our office so I can share with you the information I have gained.
