Patricia Kooyman, D.O. Presented for Tri-State Orofacial Myology

On September 21, Dr. Kooyman presented information about the history of collaboration between dental practitioners and osteopathic specialties and other historical perspectives on this topic. 

She discusses how her colleague, Dr. Nordstrom's collaboration with osteopathic physicians and orofacial myofunctional therapists, as well as his training of dentists in the proper use of the ALF (Alternative/Advanced Lightwire Functional) appliance, has led to the present-day evolving "Interface" of osteopathic medicine, orofacial myofunctional therapy, and appropriate use of the ALF Appliance for the benefit of patients.
