Pediatric Airway Development


“There are only 2 ways we can breathe. Through our nose or through our mouth. Dentists are the most qualified and have the most training in craniofacial and dental development. So you’re not just a Dentist.

I have personally helped a lot of sick children and helped families. I have sleep physicans asking me if we can improve the airway volume. I invite you to come to my area, and meet my team of specialists. You have to buy us dinner though 🙂 My team consist of perio/Ortho/oral surgery/ent/pediatric sleep physican/and myofunctional therapist.”
