MRC International European Summit
MRC’s 2023 International European Summit will teach you the myofunctional evaluation system that identifies breathing and myofunctional problems limiting facial growth and causing malocclusion, as well as provide you with the ability to treat myofunctional problems evident in almost every child.
The four-day summit includes workshops on how to diagnose and treat airway dysfunction, TMJ Disorder (TMD) and malocclusion. MRC CEO & Founder, Dr. Chris Farrell, will be a key presenter, along with leading myofunctional orthodontic practitioners.

Dr Chris Farrell
Dr Chris Farrell graduated from Sydney University in 1971 having gained a comprehensive knowledge of traditional orthodontics using the BEGG technique. Through clinical experience, Dr Farrell took an interest in TMJ/TMD disorder and, following further research, he discovered the aetiology of malocclusion and TMJ disorder was myofunctional, contradicting the established views of his profession. Dr Farrell founded Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC) in 1989 to develop myofunctional appliances that would prove effective in early orthodontic treatment. His Trainer and Myobrace® appliance systems are now used by orthodontists and dentists in more than 100 countries around the world.

Dr Peter Jan Meulenbelt
Dr Peter Jan Meulenbelt graduated as a general practitioner from the University of Utrecht in 1981. His interest in orthodontics started in in the early 90’s when he attended the first course of Progressive Orthodontic Seminars (POS), introducing orthodontics to general practitioners. Together with three colleagues he founded the Orthodontic Association for General Practitioners (OVAP), which had around 450 general practitioners listed as members, and he was a member of the OVAP board for many years. In 1997, he organised a course (Habitual Mouth Breathing, more than just an orthodontic problem) and acted as moderator of this OVAP-course. After following several postgraduate courses within the Netherlands and abroad, his practice started working with the Bioprogressive Therapy of Dr Robert M. Ricketts. In 2012, he learned about MRC and the Myobrace® treatment protocols.
As a result of the summer of 2015, he started the first clinic for preventive orthodontics in the Netherlands, Wijs Met Je Neus, using myofunctional equipment and OMFT. In 2020, he started giving lectures to dentists and other practitioners on the health benefits of using the Myobrace® treatment system compared to traditional orthodontics. His interest in using the BWS in combination with Myobrace® has become a strong pillar of his practice.
