About Elizabeth Hafer RDH, COM®

Hi, I’m Elizabeth. I have been practicing as a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2002. I have focused the last 15 years of my career in a pediatric setting as I have especially enjoyed working with children and young adults. I love educating all of my patients and providing them with the tools to create healthy, lifelong oral hygiene habits.

I am originally from Frederick, MD. After graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene at West Liberty University in West Virginia, I returned home to Maryland, and I am now settled in Chevy Chase, MD with my husband, Greg, stepdaughter Cora and two sons Ryan and Luke. When not in the office, I enjoy spending time with family and being outdoors. Having completed my third Marine Corps Marathon in 2019, I am now training for my first triathlon coming up this summer!

I started my Myofunctional Therapy journey in 2019 after becoming passionate about the need to educate patients and parents about the significance of myofunctional disorders. Working with patients to tackle the challenge of eliminating unhealthy habits and creating an awareness with good oral posture is both exciting and rewarding.
