In this FREE pilot episode, Salme Lavigne, scientific editor of the Canadian Journal of Dental Hygiene (CJDH), interviews Seema Virji, lead author of a recently published article on orofacial myofunctional therapy as a treatment option for a young client with malocclusions created by oral habits. Learn about Seema’s journey to becoming a certified orofacial myologist (COM®), her experience with the peer-review and publication process, and how myofunctional therapy aids in improving dental malocclusions by eliminating oral habits.

Read Seema’s case study and learn more about the integral role that COM®s play in client care. Also, browse past issues of CJDH for complementary research on similar topics. Individual journal articles can be easily viewed, downloaded, and printed.
