Board of Advisors
Gerald H. Smith, DDS, DNM
Dr. Smith is a recognized international authority on craniomandibular somatic disorders with a focus on resolving chronic pain. He has a Doctor of Natural Medicine degree from The World Organization of Natural Medicine. He is the author of numerous articles on the ALF appliance and two landmark textbooks for professionals, Cranial‑Dental‑Sacral Complex and Dental Orthogonal Radiographic Analysis. He has also contributed equally important books: Headaches Aren’t Forever and two recently published books, Reversing Cancer and Alternative Treatments For Conquering Chronic Pain. The latter is one of the first books to integrate osteopathic, chiropractic, dental, physical therapy, and nutritional concepts. Doctor Smith’s fifty years of clinical research has uncovered several major missing links that focus on the dental whole body connection regarding the treatment of cancer, chronic pain, and somatic structural instability.
Kem Moser, DDS
Dr. Moser was trained in all aspects of general dentistry and helped coin the term family dentistry in 1978. He was always interested in so-called "TMJ" problems because he had one himself. He took a serendipitous course in 1974, his first year after graduation from Temple, and that informed the rest of his dental career until today.
Lawrence Bagnell, DC
Dr. Bagnell graduated from Life University in Marietta, Georgia, in 1991. Dr. Bagnell developed the "Bagnell Technique for Malpositioned Babies." Dr. Bagnell is a guest lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing as well as chiropractic universities and organizations. He dedicates his life to healing the body, spirit, and mind, and believes that the chiropractic approach is the most sensible and effective way to treat many common health problems.
Anthony Rinaldi, DDS
Dr. Rinaldi is a board certified prosthodontist. He was an instructor and taught crown and bridge courses at Temple University School of Dentistry. He holds patents on dental implant devices and authored numerous articles on implantology and crown and bridge techniques.
