The LSFO is the oldest teaching centre in the world aimed at affecting facial growth. Set up in 1983 to teach the practical and theoretical skills of Orthotropic therapy, the school aims to teach, treat and research the orthotropic philosophy. Orthotropics® is a form of natural orthodontics and defined as the science of influencing facial growth direction (correct growth, Ortho- straight or correct, tropics- growth). This science aims to identify and affect the causative factors of malocclusion, and associated symptoms. The goal is to cure malocclusion gaining a permanent dental alignment with no retention and all 32 teeth present, and create a well-functioning healthy face. This branch of orthodontics differs in some fundamental points; Orthodontics- aims to push the teeth into alignment, extracting additional teeth were necessary and then maintain the result indefinitely. Orthotropics- aims to change oral posture, muscle function and the balance of the lips and tongue to improve the development of the face and cure malocclusion and the associated problems. At the London School of Facial Orthotropics we run a series of courses to introduce dental and orthodontic professionals the concept and problems associated with “incorrect” facial growth and different methods to change facial growth. The LSFO is the oldest teaching centre in the world aimed at affecting facial growth, set up in 1983 by Professor John Mew. Initially the school was at Foxley Lane but in 2006 it moved to Pampisford Road, Purley,South Londonto provide education for Dentists, Orthodontists and ancillary workers about the science of Orthotropics.
