We understand that dentists and orthodontists have many options to choose from as they navigate their journey as ALF Therapists.
Our goal is to provide an opportunity to learn from the creator of ALF Therapy as it was intended and continues to be updated and refined as time goes on.
As a natural consequence of the sharing of valuable information, there have been several dentists and orthodontists that have learned a portion of the message and recognized the need to spread the word and attempt to simplify the teachings of ALF Therapy.
Even though some providers have felt overwhelmed by the complexity of the teachings and have been instructed by other people in their ALF educational journey, there is a need to ensure that the authenticity of the true message of ALF Therapy is made available for all who dedicate themselves to learning it.
The blessing of modern technology has now provided an opportunity for providers from all over the world to hear the message for themselves as we come together as a community to share common resources and a common message.
There is a lot to learn about the new resources available for the ALF Therapy community. Feel free to pause the video if you want to take more time to read all about the new opportunities. (this video has no sound/audio)

Our solution is to ensure that we have online options to maximize convenience as well as hands-on clinical "immersion-style" learning in our ALF: HOME course that will be offered in September 2021. Four days of intensive clinical, laboratory and experiential training by experienced providers will enhance your learning experience and ability to implement ALF Therapy into your offices.
The goal of the ALF InterFACE Academy is to support the ALF Therapy provider in having access to authentic and quality educational material in a convenient and cost effective manner.
Through the development of our academy we strive to assist our professional community in discovering the tips, techniques and technologies to support a unique and innovative alternative to traditional therapies and methods. By striving to understand optimized function as it relates to human structure and form , we distinguish ourselves as dentofacial therapists who aspire to assist craniofacial structural , neurological and esthetic development from a whole person dimension as compared to traditional mechanical dental and orthodontic techniques.
The ALF legacy has been established for many years by the leader and founder of our ALF community, Dr. Darick Nordstrom.
Dr. Nordstrom's tireless efforts and selfless devotion throughout the years of his inspired career has created opportunities for him to share his knowledge. The highly trained and skilled providers that have chosen to follow his teachings are able to provide services to patients that are unsurpassed with the use of other techniques.
The multitude of success stories speak for themselves. Dr. Nordstrom wishes to share the gift of the ALF Therapy with all who strive to understand the benefits that only the ALF can provide
To provide consistent , convenient and quality content for authentic ALF therapy education, we have developed an online educational platform for ALF Therapy providers and therapists to share a common source for ALF related education. The content will be accessible and convenient for all who choose to take advantage of the opportunity to learn authentic ALF Therapy principles and procedures for clinical application from its founder and creator.
The non-for-profit ALF InterFACE Academy and their partnership with The Synergy Academy provide continuing education for dental providers. The Synergy Academy has been awarded AGD PACE approval.
