Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy
My goal as a pediatric dentist is to provide comprehensive care to our patients. What I have
learned is that pediatric dentistry is about so much more than just teeth! The way the mouth functions as a whole
determines a lot of how are children grow, develop and function. Some children require a specific therapy
targeted towards optimizes oral function. This therapy is called orofacial myofunctional therapy.
