Hands On Cleft Palate NasoAlveolar Molding (NAM)

Nasoalveolar molding therapy for infants with a cleft lip, alveolus and palate anomaly has matured to a widely employed technique for reducing the severity of the cleft deformity while greatly improving the shape of the nose prior to surgical repair. While its efficacy and benefits have been proven, it remains a fairly labor-intensive technique which is not easily learned through the literature or technique articles alone. This course provides a hands-on step by step review of the basic technique of fabricating a NAM appliance for an infant with a unilateral cleft lip/alveolus/palate. Familiarity with the fundamental aspects of NAM would be beneficial to the attendee.

Limited to 10 Participants! Register early to reserve your seat.
Price: $200.00 USD / person ($225.00 USD after October 1st)

SILIMPLICITY!  The Fusion of Silicone and Simplicity in Keeping it Simple

The goal of this workshop is to demonstrate a number of technique tips, from the many years of clinical experience to the attendees. As in any workshop we are under time restraint so we have designed this workshop to be filled with demonstrations we have learned to keep the creation of a silicone prosthesis simple. This is not designed as a hands on workshop but one with discussion and demonstration of the topic “The fusion of silicone and simplicity in keeping it simple’’.

Facilitated by Factor II / Technovent
