My Myo Smiles
Barbara has been an active and passionate dental hygienist for the last 25yrs. Over 7 years ago she attended a lecture on Orofacial Myology. The intent was to learn more on the prevention of orthodontic relapse. Intrigued, it was then that she decided to pursue more information and take other courses. She then completed a course through the IAOM (the only certifying association for hygienists) and in 2015 became the third Hygienist in Alberta to receive certification and her COM designation. Barbs studies have not stopped and have consisted of an advanced course in Orofacial Myology (OM) with Dr. Bob Mason and other related up-to-date courses.
Barbara is enthusiastic about addressing Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders which are critical to complete patient care.
****In August of 2018 Barbara opened the first independent Orofacial Myology office in Alberta.
