Introduction: I thought I might try and follow the precedent set by Richard Barrett in the November 1988 issue of the IJOM. He wrote of the early development of myofunctional therapy, with a charm which can only emanate from a man with a rare combination of talent, and the ability to be self-critical. For my part I thought it might interest readers to have the views of a foreigner from outside the specialty, who to some extent could stand back from the controversies which have arisen in the U.S.A.
