Courtney Atkinson RDH BAS FAADH IAOM Trained Ora Facial Myologist

Gulf Coast Tongue Tie and Airway Development
Courtney Atkinson graduated from Dental Hygiene school in 2015 with honors. Never anticipating herself as a pediatric dental hygienist prior to McMurphy Pediatric Dentistry, she can no longer imagine working in any other specialty. The rewards from her daily impact on total health and well beginning at an early age is beyond anything she could have comprehended.

Courtney recently completed an intense training in myofunctional therapy. Myofunctional therapy focuses on correcting improper oral habits, such as mouth breathing, tongue thrust and incorrect swallowing patterns that can lead to various oral health issues and impact overall well-being. Courtney developed a no pacifier/no thumb protocol with positive reinforcement that is becoming very popular and successful within our practice.
