We recognize the high levels of malocclusion in children, but we often miss the connection to how unhealthy the child may be. This course will connect the dots from airway compromise to the everyday medical symptoms that children and parents are struggling with, to the treatment options that exist to help these families. The dental team is uniquely positioned to evaluate and treat children through collaboration as young as 3 years old to improve their overall health, growth and development. Attendees will be able to understand the role of an orofacial myofunctional therapist, understand how myofunctional guidance appliances work, and understand how to develop a child’s airway through collaboration.
