The podcast features a conversation between Drs. Tracey Nguyen, Michelle Weddle, and Stacy Ochoa. They are the founders of ASAP Pathway. They discuss the importance of considering the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in growth and development management. They have recently started a live course on TMJ to help practitioners incorporate this knowledge into their practice. They have also revamped their courses on TMD, early ortho intervention, skeletal expansion, and other topics to focus on practical application and implementation. They emphasize the importance of being able to apply what is learned in the courses to help children right away.

The speakers then shift their focus to Invisalign and its potential benefits in orthodontics. They mention Invisalign First, which allows intervention at a young age to correct crowded arches and deep bites. They also discuss Invisalign MA, which can help improve airway and breathing by advancing the lower jaw. Lastly, they mention the Invisalign Expander, which can improve nasal function and respiratory health.

The speakers express their excitement about these advancements in orthodontics and their eagerness to try them out. They also mention the growth of the pediatric airway field and the importance of ongoing learning and collaboration among practitioners.
Overall, the podcast transcript provides insights into the speakers' experiences and perspectives on various topics related to dentistry, orthodontics, and airway health. It highlights the importance of continuous education and practical application in improving patient care.
