Skokie Orthodontist Speaks on Craniofacial Orthodontics at French University
SKOKIE, IL-Practicing orthodontists are usually thought of as doctors who straighten teeth with appliances or braces. But Dr. Michael Stosich of iDentity Orthodontics does so much more.
He recently traveled to France and spoke to the pediatric surgeons and residents at the University of Dijon on craniofacial orthodontics, as well as cell-based therapies.
He talked about his treatment philosophy, methods of treatment, diagnosis and stem cell-based reconstruction research.
The American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association, or ACPA, is comprised of health care professionals who treat and/or perform research on birth defects of the head and face. As stated on their website, association members play a vital role in the management of those with cleft lip, cleft palate and other craniofacial abnormalities.
The ACPA abides by five core values that include the well-being of patients and families, development and dissemination of knowledge, excellence in clinical care, interdisciplinary respect and collaboration, as well as professional integrity.
Being a member, Dr. Stosich takes great pride in all the time he dedicates to the association.
We mentioned in a previous blog that Dr. Stosich specializes in a number of craniofacial orthodontic areas. He offers extraordinary treatment and surgical planning, as well as orthodontic management of patients.
Plus, Dr. Stosich is connected with a myriad of specialists in the fields of:
- Craniofacial reconstruction

- Facial cosmetic surgery
