Ever wondered how a speech pathologist could revolutionize the world of orthodontics and dentistry? That’s exactly what we’re unpacking today. Join us as we navigate the interconnected paths of consulting, specialized therapies, and the powerful influence of myofunctional therapy in preventing orthodontic issues. Our deep-dive explores how creating educational video content and hosting events can help establish a speech pathologist as an expert in the field. Plus, we get candid about the collaborations with dental professionals that are enhancing patient outcomes and shaping a new frontier in comprehensive care.

Spotting a child’s mouth breathing or hearing their snoring can be more alarming than you think – it’s not just about getting a good night’s sleep. Our discussion takes you through the often-missed signs of speech sound and oral facial myofunctional disorders, unmasking their potential ties to broader health concerns such as ADHD. We stress the vital role of early intervention and the holistic approach to treatment that ropes in various specialists. With insights on the importance of pediatricians and dentists in early detection, we emphasize that looking beyond the symptoms to the core of a child’s health is key to fostering their overall well-being.

Balancing the scales between a thriving career and family life can be a high-wire act, but it’s one we embrace with open arms and a dose of reality. Listen as we share our personal narratives on juggling motherhood, personal passions, and the entrepreneurial spirit necessary to run a successful business. From the nuances of networking to the power of following one’s gut instincts in health matters, this episode is a testament to the courage it takes to advocate fiercely for the health of our children – and ourselves. And as we sign off, we celebrate the joy and hope that come from helping others break free from the shackles of dependency and embrace a life of independence through effective therapy.
