Whether you are new to myofunctional work, or whether you are an experienced practitioner, this is a great chance to learn about the trademarked ‘Take Off’ algorithms.

Dr Dan and Dr Donny have a combined experience of using Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) of over 20 years. Not only have they learned the theory and practical aspects from the best OMT educators in the business. They have both successfully incorporated OMT into busy dental practices and know how hard it can be to make it work.

What they bring to the world of OMT education is direct experience of introducing successful OMT programs to no less than 7 practices between them. They know what works and what does not. With their “Take Off’ program they have created a method which is easy to follow and highly effective.

You will learn over 50 different exercises and more importantly you will be coached on when to use each exercise while still keeping every OMT treatment plan bespoke for each patient. No patient is the same, and no ideal OMT plan is the same either. Therefore, you will learn how to tailor the plan according to clinical need.

Educational tools will include live demonstrations, videography and their unique ‘Take Off’ Algorithms which tell the user which exercises to use according to the specific overall muscular dysfunction of the patient at that moment in time. ‘Take Off’ Algorithms enable the practitioner to key in a specific code for the dysfunction and generate an appropriate treatment plan – so you will go away from this course with pre-made treatment plans which are written according to the patient’s specific treatment need.
