She has since been fascinated with the world of grinding, clenching, cranial facial development challenges, Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction, sleep disordered breathing pattern concerns, and how to find the treatment modalities to help her patients fix these concerns long term. This field of study is always advancing with ever changing research and she dedicates many hours to continued education classes a year.
