International Affiliation of Tongue-Tie Professionals?!

tongue-tie

What a mouthful for the name of a meeting! Dr. James and Dr. Lauren will be learning all about tongue problems this weekend. We often see infants in our practice who are having difficulty breast feeding. After referral from a lactation consultant, Dr. James performs a clinical exam to see if the infant is truly tongue-tied and if they are uses a laser to help with the problem. We will be meeting with other professionals who treat tongue-ties at this meeting and we can’t wait to learn more!
