This presentation will synthesize an approach to juvenile and adolescent treatment, incorporating many of the current orthodontic and orthopedic technologies that have emerged during the last two decades. The material presented in this course is based largely on Dr. McNamara's 40 years of experience as a practitioner in ann arbor, on his knowledge of craniofacial growth and development, and on the outcomes of experimental and clinical studies conducted at the University of Michigan. His presentation will be evidencebased in that he and his colleagues have carried out prospective and retrospective clinical studies concerning most of the treatment techniques to be discussed.
