Mindy: Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist
Mindy has been a part of our team since we opened in 1996. She started her career as a dental hygienist and after discovering her passion for Myofunctional Therapy, is now our exclusive Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist for Payson, Utah. This therapy is not new, but has just recently made its way to the United States. This treatment has been used in European countries for many years. The purpose of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy is to retrain facial muscles that may have developed incorrectly due to childhood issues such as; thumbsucking, tongue and lip ties, pacifiers, and more. Receiving Myofunctional Therapy as a child can reduce or eliminate the need for braces, CPAP machines, and more later in life.
