Tongue-tie, Lip-tie, Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTS) and Infant Feeding
15 May 19 | Dr. Greg Notestine
Scholarship Opportunities for Active Leaders (does not include registration for CERPs credit)
This presentation was written for healthcare providers and modified to be suitable for Leader enrichment, too. Dr. Notestine explains to medical professionals how to do a release procedure themselves and Leaders should understand that when he says “you”, he is speaking to healthcare providers. Many Leaders will find it useful to see how the examination and procedure should be done by trained medical professionals. The intention is NOT to teach Leaders to do the examination or procedure. As always, Leaders viewing these webinars need to remain aware of the scope of their Leader’s role. As Leaders we do not diagnose, promote treatment, or speak against treatment for oral issues. We may highlight a variety of options for mothers to consider and discuss with their healthcare providers. This webinar shares one perspective for consideration and makes clear that a Leader may only observe, inform and refer parents for possible tongue tie issues, or any other potential issue.
In this informative webinar, Dr. Greg Notestine teaches how to recognize potential Tongue-tie, Lip-tie, Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTS) by signs and symptoms, how to define TOTs, and how TOTS are diagnosed and treated. He also helps participants to understand the value of working with other healthcare providers for best outcomes and learn potential future outcomes of untreated TOTS.
Please note: This webinar portrays an actual surgical procedure. Please be aware of some content that may be disturbing to sensitive viewers.
