GSF Advanced NAM Program
In line with Global Smile Foundation’s vision and on-going efforts to provide comprehensive, multi-disciplinary cleft care to our underserved patient population, we pioneered the first advanced training program in NasoAlveolar Molding (NAM) therapy in Latin America.
The advanced NAM program provides the prospective NAM fellow with the academic knowledge and clinical skills to proficiently treat infants born with cleft lip/palate utilizing NAM technique. During the training period, intensive workshops and didactic knowledge will be taught by Craniofacial Pediatric Dentists who were trained by Dr. Barry Grayson (New York Langone Medical Center, New York, NY USA), the founder of NAM therapy.
The prospective NAM fellow will also develop an understanding of what is needed to participate in or establish a similar NAM clinic at their own institute. The prospective fellow is expected to treat not less than 10 patients depending on training duration, utilizing NAM before their primary surgical repair. The fellow will also work/ train with local health care providers.
The advanced NAM training program produces proficient and scientifically adept dentists with advanced NAM training who are capable of diagnosing and managing all types of pediatric patients born with cleft and craniofacial anomalies.
