The Myo Spot
As a mother of four, I honestly can admit that I was absolutely oblivious to orofacial myofunctional disorders. Yet, they affected each of my children in various ways! My home was literally flooded with a dysfunction that I was unaware of and that no one ever pointed out. Until that one day, I brought my children in for their cleanings in my new pediatric dental office. Suddenly, it all came together and I was rapidly into a world that was overwhelming and enlightening. I dove deep into the ocean of orofacial myology and enveloped my encounters with patients and (sometimes) strangers in educating others about the subtle ways OMDs are affecting their homes. Improper oral resting posture no longer has a place in my home and I work diligently daily in hopes that one day it will no longer reside in any other homes. I am a dental hygiene graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry NJ, and a proud IAOM orofacial myology certification course graduate of the incomparable Sandra Holtzman.
