We offer online Telemedicine

For a convenient and easy way to get a consultation and care, Nebraska Myofunctional specialties offers online telehealth options using the latest technology. Telemedicine can be done on several platforms, including FaceTime, Facebook, Skype, and Zoom. The initial full consultation takes two hours, a tongue-tie only initial exam takes an hour and each therapy appointment is 30 minutes in length.

You will be able to actively participate in your child’s appointments and printable measuring tools are accessible on this page. We offer a variety of myofunctional treatment plans, all of which are tailored specifically to your unique needs. The result is a comprehensive treatment approach focused on returning true functionality to the orofacial complex and eliminating dysfunctional breathing patterns and habits. The results our patients have experienced have been life-changing.
