Divine Proportions (Golden Proportions)

By Clayton A. Chan, DDS, MICCMO

Phi is in Art, Nature and Science. It is comprised of null and 1. The Fibonacci sequence, 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13….are intrinsically related to the Divine Proportions (1.6.1803…). The divine proportions of a rectangle is 5:8 was found to be the average ratio that was close to the φ and was preferred by most people in regards to its proportions.


Phi simply describes the relationship in perfect proportions of the whole to its parts. It is a relationship so perfect that its parts are to each other as the whole is to its larger part.  The Logarithmic Spiral - Golden Proportions = Divine Proportions

The POWER OF PHI creates harmony and a unique capacity to unite different parts of a whole so that each preserves its own identity, yet blends each into a greater pattern of a single whole. My desire is that Occlusion Connections be a living and dynamic entity to assist the greater pattern of a single whole.

We can only be our best when we align ourselves with the Greater null and 1.

The regenerative principle we have all inherited within our DNA allows us to reflect natures intended design and keeps us on trajectory and at physiologic rest within.

Skull Orientation, Fox Plane vs. HIP Occlusal Plane Relationships

by Clayton A. Chan, DDS

When considering the “HORIZONTAL GAZE” for each of these skulls one will note that picture “A” skull could have the head tipped slightly more downward to improve a level eye gaze which would increase the occlusal plane angle relative to the horizontal table approaching what I would consider a better more anatomical relationship.

The pictures of the 2 skulls with both physiologic and pathologic head postures will go a long way to clarify the issues of the relevance of the Optimized use of the Fox Plane vs. the HIP mount.

Seeing the bigger picture and correlating these key principles to earths gravitational forces and cervical muscular balance works best and compliments the clinician's cosmetic treatment when a clear and balanced understanding of these foundational occlusal plane concepts are presented in an unbiased manner.

We cover the clinical and laboratory aspects more extensively in our Level 6 Occlusion Connections training.  I hope many of you would consider coming to our OC courses to learn "why and what I do" to help my esthetic/TMD cases.  It is impossible to convey all these great concepts in just a short posting.
