GOPex App

This app was designed by Dr. Sandra Kahn, author of GOPex, Let´s Face it!, and JAWS, a Bay Area orthodontist with more than 20 years of experience who practices Forwardontics.



Product Description

GOPex app is a tool to help kids (ideally from 4 to 18 years old) achieve the best postural habits for optimum face and airway development resulting in long-term health.

Modeling tutorial videos provided, users will send videos performing postural exercises: chewing, counting or reading. Each video will be reviewed by the GOPex app which will provide 90 days of guidance and feedback for improvement.

Incredible results will be observed in 30 days, but the goal is to make good posture a lifetime habit. GOPex utilizes brain plasticity to re-set children’s resting posture for growing healthier and preventing chronic disease.

Application will be active for 90 days, but long-term subscription membership can be requested for continuing maintenance.

JAWS Book

There's a silent epidemic in western civilization, and it is right under our noses. Our jaws are getting smaller and our teeth crooked and crowded, creating not only aesthetic challenges but also difficulties with breathing.

Product Description

Modern orthodontics has persuaded us that braces and oral devices can correct these problems. While teeth can certainly be straightened, what about the underlying causes of this rapid shift in oral evolution and the health risks posed by obstructed airways?

Sandra Kahn and Paul R. Ehrlich, a pioneering orthodontist and a world-renowned evolutionist, respectively, present the biological, dietary, and cultural changes that have driven us toward this major health challenge. They propose simple adjustments that can alleviate this developing crisis, as well as a major alternative to orthodontics that promises more significant long-term relief. Jaws will change your life. Every parent should read this book.
