WEBINAR – Tongue-Tie Update: How Oral Restrictions Impact Feeding, Speech, and Sleep Across the Lifespan

April 9 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm PDT

Join our complimentary webinar to deepen your knowledge of tethered oral tissues (TOTS). The American Laser Study Club is delighted to feature Dr. Richard Baxter, DMD, MS, a renowned educator and author of “Tongue-Tied,” in an enlightening session titled “Tongue-Tie Update: How Oral Restrictions Impact Feeding, Speech, and Sleep Across the Lifespan.”

It seems that everywhere you turn, parents and professionals are discussing, concerned about, and asking questions about tongue and lip-ties. With so many opinions, objections, and success stories, it’s hard to cut through the noise. This evidence-based and clinically informed presentation will provide clarity to the real issues a restricted tongue can cause throughout the lifespan. Healthcare providers are well-positioned to screen for, diagnose and treat, or refer these patients with a team-based approach to manage these very common conditions. A review of the relevant literature, over a dozen clinical cases of all ages, diagnostic criteria, assessment techniques, treatment videos, and recommendations will be discussed in this comprehensive lecture. Dr. Baxter will share the knowledge, successes, and struggles from his practice and experience in treating thousands of patients with these conditions.

Course Objectives:

  • Conduct a thorough exam on a baby, child, or adolescent; classify the degree of tongue or lip restriction; and screen for common symptoms related to these conditions.
  • Know if the attendee wishes to treat these patients in the office as part of a multidisciplinary team or refer them for care by a trained provider.
  • List the steps involved in assessing, diagnosing, referring to other specialists, and treating when indicated children with tongue restrictions.
