The second annual BFOA conference will be even more successful than the first one, which has already surprised everyone! You will be the first in the Baltic States, who will learn, how to use occlusion to achieve symmetry of the body, to eliminate body asymmetries and to protect the whole human musculoskeletal system from their negative influence.

Our goal is to expand dentists’ attitude to their work, to encourage their interest in a regular oral and facial development, correct position and function of the jaws, muscles and joints, as well as their impact on the entire human body, general well-being and health. In other words – to promote orthotropic approach to the treatment, when we remove actual causes of the disease rather than the symptoms. Together with you we want to change people’s lifestyle, posture, breathing patterns and to allow the correct bite development from a young ageIf we all start to observe our patients, to teach and to educate them today, we’ll have a new, more beautiful and much healthier generation in 15 years! That’s why the main direction of our common way – the symmetry of the Fibonacci sequence, which should be observed both in patient’s mouth and in the face.

If you are a member of BFOA and you’re dreaming of becoming a lecturer and want to present your  work to your colleagues, you’re invited to register for a 20 minutes report. This is a unique opportunity to introduce yourself to the wide world!
