When an important function such as swallowing is thrown off, problems may develop. Becoming an Orofacial Myofunctional l Therapist is a natural career progression for Dental Hygienists. As oral care therapists, we are able to partner with our patients to co-diagnose, co-treatment plan, and mutually enjoy healthy management of dental illness and abnormalities.
