The North Carolina Tongue Tie Center is the culmination of a long held vision by an interdisciplinary team. The model we use has been in development since 2014 as a vision for a way to best serve families who have children struggling due to oral restrictions -tongue and lip ties. We have witnessed how overwhelming the “tongue tie journey” is for parents, who fight for answers, services, and clarity about what their child needs. Parents who bring their children to us have frequently gotten conflicting advice and information about the right course to take. Their children have often been given superficial treatment that fails to give full resolution.
The NCTTC consists of professionals from a variety of fields who all share a common goal –Patient Centered, Evidence Based, Integrative Care. Our vision is holistic care that treats patients as whole people and considers the needs of the whole family. We value the physical and emotional needs of both parents and the small people they give us the honor of caring for. We work for care that is unbiased in every possible way so that our recommendations and treatment are centered entirely on well informed parents making evidence based decisions about what is best for their children.
