Why Do RDHs Want to Become Orofacial Myologists?
RDHs are in the unique position of being able to observe patients at very close range. As such, they are ideal professionals to use their finely tuned skills to detect when something is wrong. They can observe if someone appears to be tongue tied, has an open bite accompanied by a sucking habit, if dental eruption is delayed, the presence of chronic mouth breathing. These and dozens more orofacial myofunctional symptoms are among the areas that RDHs learn to assess and treat during the Orofacial Myology: From Basics to Habituation training course.

“Hi Sandra, I took a course in August from someone else and I’ve had no support, and I feel totally isolated in my field. I do not want to stop practicing this, as my very first client, a 25 yr old orthodontics patient, told me I’d changed her life, but I know my own limits and I need that support network. I’m working on finances and time commitments so that I can enroll in your course. Many thanks”

“This was dynamic and thorough. No one wanted to leave at the end of each day!”

Jamesa, Becky and Karen were also an amazing wealth of knowledge. Very happy!”

“The information is presented in an easy to understand way.”
“I appreciate the many resources available on the website and specifically to Neo-Health graduates.”
“I have a small start-up Airway-Centered practice where I do all of my own therapies. I took another group’s course in February and thought it was comprehensive. Since then, I have seen where there are holes in my myo training. I will start by purchasing your Myo Manual and going from there. I referred a few colleagues to your course since and they took the other group’s course and were very disappointed.”
“I am truly lost. I practice dental hygiene in a general practice and I have been speaking with one of your Neo-Health course graduates. I would like to think my time and investment was not a total loss in the other class, but I feel I need more. Can you fit me into a class in the near future? Please advise.”
“The instructors were extremely helpful, funny, and entertaining. This is a great well organized presentation of fantastic information.”
“I liked everything – this class was worth every single cent!”
Whoo hoo!!! Awesome! I have to say I think this test is much more practical and relevant than the COM test.
I appreciated reviewing the Myo Manual in depth during my exam. Thank you for everything Sandra and Becky ❤️.
This gave me the opportunity to review the Myo Manual after class and I found some things I had previously missed!
This exam was just what I needed to feel confident. Thank you!
The QOM process is applicable and doable…a great way to report, analyze and reflect on the skills we have learned while using the Myo Manual! Yippie!!!
