Rebecca Rose, RDH
I am a native of the Puget Sound area in Washington State; which is where I also met and married my wonderful husband of 25 years. We have two young adult sons (proud ASU Sun Devil Mom of a 2023 Senior!) and a miniature schnoodle. I worked for many years as a Dental Assistant prior to transitioning into Dental Hygiene. In 1999 I obtained my degree in Dental Hygiene while living in New England as my husband completed his enlistment in the United States Navy (proud Navy Vet Wife!).
After many successful years practicing clinical dental hygiene in a private practice setting, I completed advanced training to become an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist. I personally know the struggles of being a mother of babies with a tongue tie defect. I lament not having the information and knowledge, available today, about airway health and myofunctional disorders when my children were young. Because this defect is largely genetic in nature I've seen first-hand the struggles of adults with orofacial myofunctional disorders and the impact it has on their health, quality of their lives, and also their families'.
It is my personal experience that drives my desire to help other families unravel the complexity of myofunctional symptoms, correct their orofacial myofunctional disorders, and greatly impact their overall well-being. It is stunning to me what a complex creation the human body is and all of its potential capabilities. Often in dentistry and medicine we experience 'compartmentalizing' of illness or wellness; where it is focused too narrowly on a specific function, organ, symptom, or illness. I strive to see the bigger picture... the whole picture. The body is a fascinating interconnection of processes and systems. It's all connected and often it starts with the mouth!
Recently my husband and I relocated to beautiful Ogden, UT where I am very excited to expand my practice and help more patients! Thanks to modern technology, I am able to continue to assist my clients in Washington State and anywhere in the US through a combination of both virtual and in-person appointment options.
I have over 30 years invested in my profession and have a passion for assisting others achieve a healthier, higher quality of life!
In our free time we enjoy anything outdoors - mountain biking, skiing, hiking, rock climbing, and traveling!
