What is a Frenectomy? Who needs one?
At the NC Tongue Tie Center, we care for your children like they’re our own. We are committed to providing a compassion-filled experience as we help you and your family achieve your breastfeeding, eating and speech goals. We always start with a thorough evaluation and a proper diagnosis before discussing any treatment options.
By Your Side. From Start To Finish.
From our thorough consultations, and our dedicated guest services coordinator, we’ll walk you through every step of the process to provide a seamless experience from start to finish. The NC Tongue Tie Center is a local
practice- no corporate offices, no unanswered calls or emails, no barriers to getting your questions answered. Just real people, here to help you all along the way.
What Sets Our Practice Apart?
Integrated and Personalized
Our integrative breastfeeding model combines chiropractics and lactation consulting with our frenectomy services to provide a comprehensive array of services available at one appointment. We also work with a variety of professionals such as speech therapists, eating therapists, occupational therapists and bodyworkers to provide a complete start to finish approach when addressing lip and tongue ties.
Evidence-Based, For Real Results
During our consultation, we’ll help you sort through all the google and facebook posts, and update you on how the most current evidence and science relates to your child, to help you make an informed decision. Additionally, the NC Tongue Tie Center functions as a research center, dedicated to using the experiences of moms today, to help the moms of tomorrow. Your experience with us today will help moms with tongue-tied babies for years to come.
Same Day Treatment Available
Same day consultations and treatment are available. Is your baby experiencing failure to thrive? Driving from far away? This option is available to all patients- give us a call to determine if this option is right for you.
We Work With Your Insurance
Insurance can be confusing and we’re here to help! We work with and file to medical and dental insurances, from pre-authorizations to advocating for you and your child. All surgeries are pre-authorized so there are no surprise charges for you.
All Inclusive Pricing
If insurance is not an option due to lack of coverage or high deductibles, we have special all inclusive pricing for those that do not want to involve insurance.
One Year, 100% Guarantee
In the rare chance that a mouth restriction grows back within a year, we’ll fix it again, free!

We brought our two week old son in for a lip tie and tongue tie revision. I was at the end of my rope with so many issues breastfeeding when we were referred here. I’m so glad we were because Dr Ray and his staff were super helpful, knowledgeable and kind.
