Symposium Description:
Orofacial myofunctional disorders are prevalent in our society, affecting general well-being and quality of life. In this course we will consider deviant oral and head and neck rest postures and how they relate to the function of breathing, chewing and swallowing. Attendees will gain an awareness of deficient oral development and impacts on the rest of the body. Through a look at the research, we will discuss prevention, awareness and the importance of a team approach in partnership with dentists, dental hygienists, speech language pathologists and physical therapists among other healthcare professionals. Collaboration is key to successful treatment as is recognizing the interconnectedness of each bodily system to the whole.

Terri Patrick – RDH, MS, CHES, CDHC, CIC®, Adjunct Faculty Member at Texas Woman’s University
Regina Gentry – RDH, Adjunct Faculty Member at Texas Woman’s University
