About our Founders
Dr Donny Mandrawa, co-founder of mYofocUs, has been performing myofunctional orthodontics since 2001. 95% of his patients are children. He has a great passion for helping children to grow towards their maximum unique genetic potential, and has attended numerous professional development courses all over the world to further his knowledge in this ever evolving field.
He has a wealth of clinical experience at developing the jaws, through correction of oral and facial muscle dysfunctions. Furthermore, he has educated over 150 dentists on myofunctional orthodontics for The University of Airlangga in Surabaya, Indonesia.
Now, he co-runs and co-presents the mYofocUs Mini Residency Modules and Courses with Dr. Dan, teaching dentists and various health practitioners (including Ear Nose Throat Specialists, Bodyworkers, Speech Language Pathologists, Lactation Consultants, etc.) about the mYofocUs pre-orthodontic system.
Dr. Dan Hanson, co-founder of mYofocUs, co-founder of The Tongue tie Institute and inventor of SleepYstrip - the exclusive nasal breathing device. He has dedicated his career to paediatric pre-orthodontics since 2011.
He lectured to dental practitioners, for Myofunctional Research Company (MRC), globally until 2017; and was the principal dentist of the MRC Clinic in Robina, Queensland, from 2012 to 2016.
