Exploring Interdisciplinary Dentistry with Dr. Rebecca Bockow

In this episode of Jaw Talk, we have the privilege of speaking with Dr. Rebecca Bockow, a remarkable dual-trained orthodontist and periodontist, who is the only dual-trained provider in Seattle and one of only a handful in the country.

Dr. Bockow is not only a skilled practitioner but also a passionate educator. She regularly lectures nationally and abroad on topics such as periodontics, orthodontics, interdisciplinary orthodontics, airway, and skeletal growth and development. Her dedication to sharing knowledge extends to contributing to multiple professional journals as an author and editor. As resident faculty at Spear Education, Dr. Bockow continues to inspire and train the next generation of dental professionals.

In this episode, she shares insights into interdisciplinary dentistry, the shift towards airway-focused care, and the importance of early intervention and growth guidance in establishing a solid foundation for oral health. Dr. Bockow also discusses the interplay between posture, musculoskeletal system, and dental health, and the power of collaboration in providing comprehensive patient care. Tune in to gain valuable insights from an esteemed expert in the field of dentistry.
