Barbara is a biological dental hygienist and orofacial myofunctional therapist, who is dedicated to promoting oral and total body health. She is a practicing dental hygienist at Green City Dental in Edmonds, Washington, and provides myofunctional therapy through her business, Washington Oral Wellness. Barbara is passionate about educating people on the importance of oral health and often lectures local schools and professional audiences to share her philosophy.
Barbara started a blog at the encouragement of her daughter, Alexa, who also serves as her editor. Despite her initial skepticism that anyone would be interested in reading about tooth decay, gum disease, oral hygiene, tooth products, or myofunctional therapy, she has been pleasantly surprised by the feedback and engagement from readers all over the world. Barbara is grateful for the opportunity to share her knowledge and is delighted to see where her blog will take her.
