Is it possible for a highly experienced and Healthy Start/airway trained (for adults and kids) dental assistant to take the course?
We have been doing airway growth and development for many yrs and are losing our MFT due to circumstances of living 1.5 hrs away and her busy schedule. We really need someone to fill in the blanks. I am certain our lead asst, who really wants to do this, could be of help to me and our pts. We have no one else in our region and I simply donât have the time to do the care, one on one, even if I took the time to do the course.
What are the rules n regs re this, or are there any in particular?

Hello Dr. Samaha! There are no rules and regulations currently that guide myofunctional therapy. However most educators will not train a dental assistant. There is no straight path for all assistants to become assistants. Whereas with dental hygiene there is a standard of education and licensure set forth. That education provides the background to support working with oral function remediation and reeducation. If you have a dental hygienist in your practice that would be interested in taking a course there are online courses available on http://www.dentalsleeptoolbox.com .
