Introduction to Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (Part 1) is a proven, evidence based intensive course designed to prepare clinicians to begin to see and treat patients who have Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs). It is designed as an intensive, hands on workshop to prepare clinicians to begin treating patients. The treatment protocols may be used with young children through patients into adulthood and the assessment principles are driven by early identification of OMDs.
The Introduction to OMT Part 1 course has 4 main components:
1. History of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) and the Etiology of Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs)
2. How to identify/diagnose OMDs along with the related anatomy and pathology (Assessment)
3. How to treat OMDs: structured, phased exercises to treat and correct OMDs, eliminate noxious habits, and work with patients who present with CoMorbidities (OSA, TMD, et al).
4. How to integrate and market OMT in a multi-disciplinary environment, working with ENTs, SLPs, maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists, general dentists, sleep medicine doctors, pediatricians, and others.
- Current Evidence Based Research
- Anatomy/ Physiology / Pathology of OMDs
- Complete Habit Elimination Program (i.e., thumbsucking)
- Comprehensive Treatment Program (exercises in a complete treatment program with reference session videos to assure correct application)
- Successful Marketing and Practice Building
- Ongoing consulting support as you begin to see patients

On top of the Virtual Course, inside, you will have access to weekly mentorship sessions (we call it the Myo Coffee Klatsch) that meets on Saturday mornings 8am - 9am Pacific Time on Zoom.
Following that weekend you will have the option to join our Treatment Sessions on a weekly basis, that allows you to apply the therapy to yourself or others on a weekly schedule based on the Session Sheets we teach. Each week we go over the Session Sheet for that week and how the exercise techniques are applied and what they do.
