KIND WORDS FROM OUR PATIENTS

Dale was by far the most thorough of any [speech therapist] and was the only one who recognized her tongue restriction

 

“We have seen so many speech therapists for our daughter (15) since she was 19 months old, but Dale was by far the most thorough of any of them and was the only one who recognized her tongue restriction. I knew from the initial evaluation that we were in the right place to get our girl on track. I have since been working with her myself after correcting my own tongue restriction. Our only regret is not finding out about Dale 15 years ago. We are so thankful our orthodontist recommended her, and we highly recommend her to anyone needing myofunctional therapy!"

- Alyssa, Parent
