Your Special Smiles Special Care Series

We have learned things along the way, and we want to share. We have partnered with various individuals and entities to bring you info-packed courses with personal touch. All courses are based on our clinical experiences and/or patients' lives. We do not claim to be experts teaching you, but rather friends sharing experiences and our "homework".  We hope you enjoy our courses.

Prader Willi Syndrome: A Brief Look

Dr. Brooke will go through the basics of Prader Willi Syndrome: etiology, common traits, and medical/dental considerations. Then it will get a little more personal as she interviews two of our wonderful patients who have Prader Willi Syndrome. She will join them in their homes with their families.  While all people are unique and individual patient needs will vary,  getting to know these wonderful people and learning the basics may provide insight to help providers deliver quality care. 

Half of profits from this course will be split  between featured patients to compensate them for sharing their stories with us.
