Hi everyone!

It has come to my attention that a researcher is mass-posting a survey for the members of this message board. Before anything like that is posted on this site, I must vet the member who is posting. I do this to protect you guys from possible scammers or people with dubious agendas.

I personally don't have an "agenda" and I'm neither pro nor con regarding certain topics. This message board exists to disseminate information to adults about orthodontic treatment, and sometimes that information isn't happy or favorable. That's OK, as long as the information is accurate.

Anyway, please understand that I won't let anyone come onto the message board and use it for their own research until I vet who they are and get a clear understanding about what they are doing and how they are using the information.

If you are a researcher or journalist, before you post any sort of solicitation for participation, contact me at: If you are already a registered member (your member name is color green), you can also send me a PM.
