US Retrospective study of malocclusion in WAP raised children: New York/New Jersey
Malocclusion (crooked teeth) affects upwards more than 75% of children today. In my dental practice, I don’t see children grow jaws that can house 32 teeth.
As a pilot study, we are seeking children who grew up with the WAP philosophy of nutrition. Our purpose is to document what impact the WAP diet has on facial, jaw and dental development. The study will compare children raised with the WAP philosophy against population norms.
It will consist of:
· A historical questionnaire
· A diet questionnaire
· An orthodontic assessment
The study will assess children 10-18 years of age with a parent who is a member of the WAP Foundation.
The exam will be FREE OF CHARGE and parents can choose whether to allow specific details of their child’s case to be used in subsequent publications. If preferred, the measurements will be used in data and no personal details of their child will be published on any medium.
This is specifically for New York and New Jersey. For other states, please forward your interest and we will attempt to host other locations.
