Lauren Ballinger DDS, Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, Certified Specialist in Orofacial Myology, MRC Certified Myofunctional Therapist

The Nurture Frenectomy Center
I am a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist and I have dedicated my practice to help children thrive, as opposed to just survive.. I have “two practices in one”: The Nurture Frenectomy Center where (along with our certified lactation counselor and using the Lightscalpel CO2 laser) the focus is on providing a sanctuary of support, nurturing and expertise in tether tissue releases for mothers, babies and caregivers to optimize the breastfeeding and feeding relationship for optimal wellness, function and growth. Helping children with tethered oral tissues (lip and tongue-ties) attain proper function to aid in optimal facial and jaw growth, swallowing, speech, nasal breathing and restful sleep. Good to Grow Pediatric Dental Wellness, Airway, Growth and Sleep Solutions is a specialty pediatric dental practice devoted to the prevention of disease and realization of wellness. Preventative and corrective early (and very early) orthodontic, orthopedic and orthotropic treatment and myofunctional therapy focused on early growth guidance/correction and function of the jaws and face that make-up the boarder’s of the airway spaces. Expertly nurturing children’s craniofacial growth for better breathing, sleeping and quality of life, as early in life as possible.
