  1. Hello Timbrey! I took a myofunctional course with you last year in San Diego. I live in Austin and have begun working with a dentist who uses the Tru denta system. I see patients privately for myofucntional therapy (I took my first course in 2006). I recognized your name (I am also aquainted with Carol Van Der Stoep), and I wanted to get your take on both the Trudenta system and incorporating myofunctional into it. Any details or advice would be great! Thanks, and I enjoyed your blog!!!

    • Hi Jill!! I remember you! Ok, first off, I love Carol.. she is absolutely amazing in every possible way. Second, I’ve been using TruDenta for a couple of years now and it is VERY good to incorporate into myo. Especially the cold laser since it promotes healing. I use it on a lot of my pain patients with myofacial pain and TMD pain. Feel free to email me, I’d love to talk more! integrativehygienist@gmail.com
