Patients often need someone to understand the root cause of their problems. Often these problems occurred during an event in their life that created a "gap" in their journey toward wellness.
Providers often need the professional support through continued and quality education so that they can continue to benefit from the most recent updates and evolution of thought.
By seeking knowledge about these "gaps", we can better understand our role in "filling the cracks" of impaired or interrupted development - both personally and professionally.
Sometimes the difference between where someone is and where they want to be can be understood and supported by a provider with dedication to seek the root cause of the problem.
ALF Therapy offers unique opportunities in providing structural, functional and neurologic development for patients who need our help the most.
It takes time to tell a story - especially the story of one's life and development.
By helping our providers to understand the ways to support a healthy beginning, middle and ending of a successful life story, we can be a meaningful part of improving their lives.
Trauma creates gaps in ideal development.
The key to recovery is to understand the root cause of the problem. By helping our patients benefit from the most innovative and effective techniques and technology, we can support them in recovery from structural and functional issues that bring them to our offices for help.
Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.” – José N. Harris.
The key to living a resilient life is to have the tools necessary to help one overcome the challenges in life. We are all given the tools, but sometimes we lose them along the way.
Appreciating the dash as a concept - not a race to the finish.
Connecting the dots to see a clearer picture.
We are living our story...and that takes time. Being in a rush to judgment, hurry to finish and need to prove ourselves to others can create a sense of vulnerability and scarcity.
By taking a closer look at the science, we can better understand ourselves. Together as a community, we will explore the neurobiology of connection, the dynamics of development and the importance of resilience as a common theme in living our best lives. By discussing the unique opportunities that ALF Therapy offers, we can improve our skills in connecting our patients with the support that they need to improve both structural form and neurologic function.
Do we know so much about ourselves and our patients that we can gamble with their lives by using primitive appliances?
During this discussion, we will share the truths of physiology that cannot be modified to meet the needs of those looking for easy answers marketed to the masses.
Our community of ALF providers should be dedicated to embracing the complexities of life and supporting the needs of patients who deserve the very best care as provided through comprehensive ALF Therapy.

As we contemplate our role as doctors, therapists and healers, how can we truly measure the impact of our therapeutic interventions?
InterFACE 2022 will take a deep dive into the aspects of functional assessments and the role of various tools for biometric analysis.
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.
The ALF InterFACE conferences and courses are held in the metropolitan St. Louis, Missouri area in the 11 South Professional Building in Columbia, Illinois which is an approximate 30 minute drive from Lambert International Airport.

Where east meets west, the clinical meets the classroom and where the conceptual meets the practical is where our ALF Therapy community meets 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.
Additional presenters have complemented Dr. Nordstrom's vision for ALF Therapy education in an approach that encourages collaboration and creativity.
