About

Chris Zombek has been helping people of various ages live a better life by providing therapy and correcting disorders related to the muscles of the face and mouth since 2014. 

Working in the field of dentistry for two decades and noticing the deformity of the face, upper and lower jaws from sucking habits, prolonged bottle and sippy cup use, tongue ties and mouth breathing.

I realized that most patients would end up in orthodontics and possible surgery if not addressed early on.

Even with their treatment of orthodontics, I witnessed prolonged or relapsed situations which lead me to understand why early intervention orthodontics and myofunctional therapy had to collaborate for the best results. 

Often during her comprehensive evaluation, she uncovers the etiology that  possibly lead to your orofacial myofunctional disorder.
