  • Dre Elizabeth Menzel

    Dre Elizabeth Menzel

    DDS, Orthodontiste

    Orthodontiste avec un intérêt pour la fonction optimale des ATM. La Dre Menzel est une sommité mondiale dans les traitements d’orthodontie respectant la fonction globale. Elle parcourt la planète depuis la dernière décennie changeant la pensée sur les relations orthodontie et fonction de l’appareil manducateur. Sa philosophie minimise les traitements avec extractions. Elle préfère les traitements de stimulation de croissance utilisant des forces qui supportent la fonction de la langue, des lèvres, des joues et de toutes les structures orales, autant chez l’enfant que chez l’adulte. Dre Menzel concentre ses traitements sur l’harmonie des structures en modifiant l’occlusion d’une position souvent potentiellement dommageable vers une nouvelle position plus fonctionnelle et ce sans perte de temps. Ses dernières présentations couronnent sa renommée internationale. Ce cours se veut un cours d’orthodontie-ATM pour tous ceux qui pratiquent l’orthodontie autant chez les adultes que les enfants.
