WEBINAR - Tongue & Lip Tie: The Game Changer Studies September 5th, 2019 @ 12 pm CT

Tongue & Lip Tie: The Game Changer Studies

Dr. Hazelbaker presents on several change-maker studies regarding the subjects of tongue-tie and lip-tie. She includes previously unknown studies from 1971 to 1995 and combines their findings with more recent studies. Participants will be surprised, delighted and maybe even disgruntled about the conclusions made in these studies. All, however, change the way we think about these subjects!
