Australia's leading Orofacial Myotherapy educators.
The Australian Academy of Orofacial Myology provides interesting, high quality courses to Health Professionals with an interest in Orofacial Myology and preventive health.
Since 2012, we have trained hundreds of health professionals all across Australia, including dentist, orthodontists, paedodontists, dental hygienists, oral health therapists, dental therapists, speech pathologists, dental assistants, chiropractors, physiotherapists and osteopaths.
Our courses are not just for dental professionals. Speech pathologists will also gain knowledge that will help with their therapy. Some children produce sounds incorrectly due to a result of an OMD. These dysfunctions can often cause articulation problems, mandibular thrust when speaking, anterior lateral lisp and hyper- or hypo-nasality.
