The Team

Agave Pediatrics has developed a clinically successful, evidence-based, compassionate, and thorough program for the treatment of tongue-tie. Our team offers an inter-disciplinary and comprehensive management of tongue-tie in children of all ages, including non-surgical and surgical management. The surgical management includes:  pre-surgery consultation, laser surgery (also called a frenectomy), and post-surgery care (including lactation and speech therapy as needed).

With well over a decade of experience and thousands of successful corrective procedures (frenectomies), we are the leading experts for the management of tongue tie - not just in the Phoenix area, but all over the country.
