  • As always ,thank you for providing these excellent podcasts.
    I was quite disappointed with the content of Dr Yoon,s lectures and this podcast.I was hoping for a studied academic response to Dr O,Brien,s (and others )clear opinions ,re the role of orthodontics in airway management.
    I could not determine a clear ,evidence -based response amidst a wordy discussion.
    I was hoping for a much clearer and well defined point of view from an institution and academic of this calibre!
    Were there any useful conclusions that might have been relevant clinically ?

    • I have to agree with you.
      Farooq’s podcasts excel in condensed information, so maybe we are spoiled in this regard.
      There were no real concise statements in this episode. Besides, the audio quality of the interviewee was not too enjoyable.
      In general, though, I am a huge fan of your podcast, Farooq!
