In 1950 a visionary Doctor started his Postgrad course in Orthodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Under the influence of head leaders like Drs. Allan Brodie and William Downs he devoted his Orthodontics career to expand the specialty to new dimensions. Being with very unquiet personality and possessing a great devotion to furthering the field of orthodontics, he developed the Bioprogressive Therapy Philosophy as an option and an answer to many limitations that were surrounding the specialty during that time.
Many great professionals joined his team, such as Ruel Bench, Carl Gugino, James Hilgers, Hiroshi Nezu, Terry Sellke, Duane Grummons, Joseph Caruso, Michael Langlade, Eichiro Nakajima, Juan Font, Juan Carlos Crespi, Franco Magni, Jerry Samson, followed by Sergio Sambattaro, Budi Kusnoto, Mario Sergio Duarte, Nelson Oppermann, Flavio Sanchez and many others around the world, and the philosophy was stretched to a world recognized technique.
Now, years after, The Bioprogressive Therapy teaching is getting back to its origins, the Orthodontics Department of the University of Illinois at Chicago - UIC - USA. A team of professors joined this endeavor and five years after teaching at the UIC’s Postgrad program, it was decided to open a new course opportunity for professionals all around the world who want to immerse into this Orthodontics treatment modality. The Bioprogressive Therapy has a unique approach to all kinds of malocclusions and gives to the Orthodontist a comprehensive approach from growth and development, diagnostics, treatment planning and biomechanics; therefore a careful course program of modules was designed to fulfill all participants' expectations. By joining the program the participant will have a chance to open up and enhance their clinical practice possibilities.
