The Team

Our team offers an inter-disciplinary and comprehensive management of tongue and lip ties 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 breastfeeding support and bodywork 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.
