Expanding the ALF Legacy in addressing the traumatic and developmental midline challenges in the growing child.
Creating opportunities to help childrem recover from traumatic brain injuries, autism, Down's Syndrome and alterations in ideal craniofacial growth
Treating patients with ALF and supportive therapies is a unique and impactful solution when addressing structural and neurologic challenges . Injury and developmental issues often result in the patient either never attaining or losing their relationship to their neurologic midline often resulting functional deficits. The implemetation of ALF Therapy can greatly benefit the patient in finding their midline and themselves.

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. By applying ALF foundational concepts with additional techniques and technologies, he promises everyone to walk away with at least 10 new concepts to apply to your healthcare practice. 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.
After the second day of InterFACE learning, we will change gears to once again have the opportunity to play and learn in a more social and interactive environment. The lecture area will convert to an evening dinner venue with opportunities to gather around the instructors and the rest of the InterFACE community. As we all share our thoughts on the lessons learned throughout the InterFACE event, we have the opportunity to immediately take what we have learned and build on our mutual experiences to create new opportunities in appliance design and use as well as new techniques and applications of technology. The clinic and the conference center will be open throughout the evening for free-form interaction and collaboration.
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 2018 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.

You asked. We listened. We delivered.
There have been many requests for patients to have improved access to educational information from the ALF InterFACE community.
We hope that patients seeking the services of ALF InterFACE Professionals will take advantage of this resource and help to expand the ALF legacy in supporting our community of providers with a unified message.
As a result of the natural evolution in creating opportunities for interconnectedness, we are creating new avenue for ALF InterFACE education under the direction of Dr. Darick Nordstrom and his trusted collaborators. Our interdisciplinary ALF InterFACE Online Academy is currently under construction and promises to offer high quality, convenient and valuable authentic ALF education. The hands-on courses will allow us to efficiently focus on the clinical component of learning to consolidate the efforts of the classroom education provided through the convenience of online education. We welcome your input and contributions as we grow as a community and as an elite group of ALF Therapy providers.
Let the collaboration begin!
