developmental dentistry

at developmental dentistry, our goal is to provide people of all ages with holistic wellness & therapies for symptoms related to craniofacial underdevelopment, TMJ pain, & sleep-disordered breathing. 

Our office leaves the fillings, crowns, and cleanings to the very special and important relationship you have with your primary dentist and instead focuses on the foundation in which those teeth are held.

Improper bite and alignment of the teeth are the result and not the cause of a patient’s craniofacial disorder. When the maxilla, mandible, palate or tongue do not grow to their full potential, the result is a child with a compromised airway. This child then grows into an adult with a greater risk of systemic disease, physical and emotional disorders, and even premature death.

We imagine a world in which not only are adults free from pain and sleep-disordered breathing, but where the next generations are prevented from enduring the consequences of poor airway development.

Sleep disordered breathing is a medical condition with a dental solution.
