Dedicated to Helping You Succeed in the Post-Retraction World
Dr. Hang has committed his career to advancing a paradigm of thinking in orthodontics that rejects traditional retractive techniques in patients of all ages. His Face Focused® treatment techniques are designed to: develop the jaws forward, never backward; create better facial balance & more pleasing facial appearance; protect and/or expand the airway; and produce broad smiles that are complete to the corners of the mouth.
When it comes to orthodontics Dr. Hang does not believe that one treatment can fit every patient. Over the years, experience has taught him that the easier way to treat is not always the best way to treat. But, he always strives to keep treatment times shorter rather than longer.
His goals are: to educate as many patients, parents and professionals about the benefits of the Face Focused® Philosophy as possible; to continue to develop treatments based on Face Focused® principles for patients of all ages; and to teach these methods to other dentists and orthodontists worldwide through seminars, workshops and mini-residencies.
The 3 areas of expertise for which he is best known are…
Dr. Hang teaches an Orthotropics® mini-residency for orthodontists and general dentists from around the world. Residents learn how to optimize facial development in young children during four 2-day sessions held over the course of one year.
Extraction spaces can be re-opened and teeth replaced with implants for many patients. Dr. Hang shares his experience with re-opening extraction spaces in a 2 day lecture.
In all of his courses, Dr. Hang presents non-surgical and surgical treatment plans that aim to prevent or eliminate OSA.
