Building a community

ALF InterFACE

The annual ALF InterFACE conference was created to provide an opportunity for advanced problem solving and interdisciplinary training.  


 This conference is not an introductory course on how to provide ALF Therapy in your practice.  Instead, it is designed to help the ALF Therapy provider be a better clinician and healer by understanding that multifaceted patients require a sophisticated and interdisciplinary approach to care.  


The goal of supporting the practitioner, treatment TEAMS and patient care is achieved through both clinical and classroom opportunities using authentic ALF foundational principles as well as new techniques and technologies.

Course Details

Pre-course electives will be  available on Thursday June 13th . The main conference will be from 9am-5pm Friday the 14th and Saturday the 15th with optional evening social events Friday and Saturday evenings.

Where east meets west, the clinical meets the classroom and where the conceptual meets the practical is where all of us will meet this April to share our talents, skills and knowledge.  

Darick Nordstrom DDS, the creator of the Advanced Light Force appliance will be sharing his knowledge and experience gained through years of development and use of the ALF in transformative patient care. The ALF appliance has revolutionized the role of dentistry in the scope of healthcare as we know it and has the potential for helping generations of people lead healthier, more functional lives while creating beautiful, balanced faces. The simple sophistication of the ALF family of appliances provides opportunities that surpass the expectations of both patients and providers when properly utilized by adequately trained providers in a TEAM approach to wellness. Dr. Nordstrom will bring a new level of understanding into why life is a continual cycle of development, expansion and transformation from our very first moments and through our everyday lives. He will share his knowledge of the influences of our environment as it relates to form and function in the oral environment and how the use of the ALF can be used to support improved function in the continuum of life.  Dr. Nordstrom will also be addressing the topic of interdisciplinary collaboration in cracking the complicated case with a focus on pediatric craniofacial growth and development in the context of midline awareness. Clinical application of the concepts will be brought to life in a clinical setting with hands on patient care through lab/breakout sessions guided by volunteer instructors and trainers.

Friday Evening Activities - Fiesta with Friends

After an exciting day of cutting edge educational opportunities, we will share our evening with new and old friends.  We will have learning centers open throughout the evening for those who want to take advantage of this unique opportunity while other can relax and  enjoy the dinner and cocktails.  

Saturday evening activities - Meet me in St. Louie

As many of you might already know, St Louis is known as the Gateway to the West.  Lewis and Clark departed from this area to discover the opportunities in what the yet unknown areas of our country had to offer in search of the Pacific Ocean.  It is not a coincidence that as we embark on our own mission of discovery at InterFACE 2019 that we share the continuity of intention as co-discoverers of a new paradigm. St  Louis is known for its rich history as well as a rich culture of unique food and a friendly people.  We want to share with you the best of St Louis in our Saturday evening event with food  and beverages that our area is known for and is identified with our St Louis culture.


 After the second day of InterFACE learning, we will change gears to  transition from business to pleasure.  As we all share our thoughts on the lessons learned throughout the InterFACE event, we also get a chance to get to know the members of our ALF Therapy family.  The  conference center will be open throughout the evening for free-form interaction and collaboration.
