The Sanders Sisters invite Irene Iancu, RDH onto the microphone to discuss Children's Dental Health Month, discussing the importance of prevention, counseling and patient-centered care for our pediatric patient population.
In this episode, we have Irene Iancu, a restorative dental hygienist who incorporates myofunctional therapy in her adult and child patients. She discusses the steps and challenges involved in making this career transition or incorporating elements of OMT into everyday dentistry and orthodontics. Recorded live at Yankee Dental Congress, we discuss a few essential and often overlooked elements.
Overview of Myofunctional Therapy
Irene's Journey to Becoming Myofunctional Therapist
Skills and Qualifications Required for Myofunctional Therapy
Challenges and Opportunities in Myofunctional Therapy
Making a career transition to myofunctional therapy requires a combination of dedication, hard work, and a passion for helping others. Irene's journey serves as an inspiration to all dental professionals who are looking to expand their skills and make a difference in the lives of their patients long-term. Remember, Lips together, teeth slightly apart, breathing through the nose and stick that tongue just behind those front teeth.
