SYNOPSIS OF LETTER SENT TO OPRAH PRODUCERS
Winfrey guest appearance.htm will provide you a thorough
background of my work in Orthodontic Jaw Wiring for weight loss/control
I am a specialist in cosmetic orthodontics practicing in Brooklyn Heights since 1976 (www.drted.com).
I invented OJW and have provided this
service to 100 patients since 1998.
My goal is to make OJW better known to my fellow-professionals, the public-at-large and ultimately to be recognized and covered by the major insurance companies.
Cordially, Dr. Ted.
Ps: I see the Oprah Magazine (May 2008) features Oprah showing her gorgeous smile proving that "A wining smile is a priceless asset".

Re: Guest appearance on the Oprah show
Dear executive producer responsible for selecting talent/and guests for appearance on the Oprah show.
I am an orthodontist practicing in Brooklyn Height since 1976 and the inventor of Orthodontic Jaw Wiring for weight loss/control (OJW).
I have provided the service to about one hundred patients since 1998.
What is OJW?
ORTHODONTIC JAW WIRING refers to the entire domain of the OJW provider's responsibility for selecting patients according to a specified criteria, providing them with informed consent so that they are aware of the risks and limitations of OJW, then wiring their jaws (see also) (see also) together by a prescribed, method, transmitting that know-how to the patient (especially if they are not able to return to your office and can not find a professional level provider) and finally, reexamining them and rewiring them periodically after examination has shown that their dentition, gingiva, and TMJ have remained healthy until the period of time that they have elected to receive OJW expires (usually about 6-9 months; representing a weight loss of 50-75 pounds) and you have removed the wiring and brackets. OJW presumes that the service is provided under the auspices of a healthcare team which includes: the patient's physician and dentist, the provider of the OJW service, a dietician, and when applicable the patient's psychologist and/or psychotherapist as well as the input of a bariatric surgeon.
By April 7 we will begin getting some Mini-DigCam film footage of the "OJW Story" (working title).
I thought now would be a good time to let you know more about me and OJW; as for me here is my CV.
If I were sending you a press release it would be the one you can see at: http://www.drted.com/OJW Jaw wiring press release 101807.htm.
Should you be interested in having me on the show please email Dr. Ted Rothstein (email@example.com).
Finally, Anne Collins had this to say about Orthodontic Jaw Wiring:
An index-directory of my chronological efforts to make OJW known and recognized by my fellow-professionals, the public-at-large as well as major insurance companies can be found here.
Below you will find the introductory letter I send to all would-be OJW patients some of whom would appear with me or agree to be interviewed were I invited to appear as a guest.

DIRECTIONS FROM ALL AIRPORTS TO THE OFFICE
Cordially, Dr. Ted
Question: Who is not a good candidate for this procedure?
Answer: Your mouth has many functions both obvious (talking) and not so obvious (sneezing) and is therefore the source of many pleasurable activities. The loss of any of them may provoke anxiety. Therefore one should think carefully about undertaking this method of weight control.
A partial list of poor candidates for OJW would include:
a. Persons who need to floss their teeth due to gum problems or other compulsive reasons.
b. Persons who speak abundantly for business or other reasons whose speech might be rendered less than perfectly clear because of being wired closed.
c. Persons whose sex life would be rendered intolerable if intimate oral functions were impaired… even a little.
d. Persons with multiple-missing, loose or decayed teeth
e. Those with psychological or emotional disorders who might feel powerless/ panicky with their mouths wired closed.
f. Those whose work functions might be impaired such as an actor, singer, waiter, teacher etc.
g. Persons with systemic diseases such as diabetics whose diets could not accommodate a liquid diet.
h. Persons who cannot breathe through their nose and whose breathing might be compromised by being held continuously in a closed bite teeth position.
i. Those who are highly allergic are more at risk.
j. Persons who have respiratory ailments such as snoring and/or sleep apnea as well as those who must use a broncho-dilator spray such as asthmatics.
l. Persons who are taking oral pill/capsule form medications could encounter some difficulties trying to pass a large capsule into the mouth behind the last teeth. It would be virtually impossible if the wisdom teeth were fully in place.
m. Persons who compulsively clench/brux/gnash their teeth.
n. Persons who have, or are suspected of having, anorexia or bulemia to begin with.
Persons with frank unresolved periodontal (gum-tooth socket) problems.
p. Persons who drink alcoholic beverages. (Alcohol suppresses the gag reflex). In the event of alcoholic intoxication vomiting can occur. [See note from respected oral-surgeon/orthodontist educator.]
q. Persons who 1. will not provide a telephone number 2. do not have an Email address. 3. below the age of 21 unless accompanied by a parent. 4. are NOT more than 125 pounds overweight or less than 25 pounds overweight (i.e, moderately obese and obese, but not "morbidly" obese).
