AAO OVERLOOKS OBESITY IN
LONG-AWAITED WHITE PAPER
The American Association of Orthodontists published findings from a 2-yr study on methods of treating SLEEP APNEA
Disappointingly, Weight Control was left off their list as an effective method to treat the most common cause of sleep apnea - OBESITY... It was long believed that the Sun revolved around the Earth, until Nicolaus Copernicus proved otherwise :-)

MEET THE BETA VERSION OF THE NEW
I created this bracket by modifying a "lingual eyelet" (Orthazone)
It's OJW--lite. I will offer it in the coming months.
IT'S MINIMAL: It does away with all the unnecessary parts of an edgewise bracket and looks good with .012 wire-- improved cosmetics.
Opening the lingual eyelet to create the Uni-post
Creating the post: not too long not too short; not too far out and not to far in
Curving the base which comes flat
Holding them ( i had no instrument available to hold and place them) I was working with crazy glue on the model which made the bracket "swim"
Post was too close blocking wire from inserting
Possibly breaking the brittle post trying to reshape its position
Uncertainty if cohesiveness of the base is sufficient
Uncertainty whether substituting .012" for .014" wire is strong enough to sustain the forces in the mouth.
OJW WINS APPROVAL BY OREGON
BOARD OF DENTISTRY
The decision allows OJW to be practiced by Dental professionals across the state and opens up new possibilities for OJW to be practiced by dental professionals across the country
[On a personal note I would like to add that one of my colleagues who commands great respect among my peers had this say: "Teddy: Good for you (and good for Dentistry too)"--L..J.]
June 23, 2017, OREGON, USA: Weight-control Services provided by Dental Professionals has been approved.
On December 16, 2016, the Oregon Board of Dentistry agreed to examine my proposal to allow Dental Professionals to Provide Weight-control services with fixed intra-oral appliances.
On June 23 2017, the “LICENSING, STANDARDS AND COMPETENCY COMMITTEE” of the Oregon Board of Dentistry unanimously agreed that Dentists who provided Weight-control services were in total accordance with the rules and regulations set forth in the DENTAL PRACTICE ACT 2013 LEGISLATIVE SESSION ORS CHAPTER 679 DENTISTS consequently permitting Dentists to legally provide weight-control services.
What is the Legal Status of Providing Weight-Control Services in Oregon? 'Permitted': Read Transcript** of the Meeting June 23, 2017. However, when the Minutes of the meeting proved to be frankly inaccurate and bewildering to a Dentist considering whether to provide this service , I proposed an amendment to them. Read my request to the committee to amend the minutes based on the verbatim Transcript of the meeting, and the outcome.
