You need to be introduced to Dr Dave Singh DDSC PhD BDS. He is the founder of the field of Epigenetic Orthodontics and Pneumopedics( non-surgical Airway remodeling) and the inventor of the MRNA appliance which will remodel the bone of the Craniofacial region correcting the underdevelopment of the midface. If you are at the Seattle Sleep 2015 medical meeting at the Washington state convention center this Monday and Tuesday I would be more than happy to introduce you. I can also show you a pre and post treatment airway of a 60 year old male that had his airway increased by 233% that was 3D printed to illustrate the changes to the airway and the concept of pneumopedics.

Wishing you all the best of health.

Look me up on LinkedIn to see a post I wrote that showcases this case. Ken Yielding
