    Meet Dr. O'Rourke & Change Your Life!

    Meet Dr. O'Rourke & Change Your Life!

    Dramatic headline? We don't think so - meet Dr. Karen O'Rourke. She is a dentist that specializes in "orthotropics" which is a treatment that focuses on guiding the growth of the face. Why is this important in our little ones? Because the growth of the face, placement of the jaw and tongue and eruption of teeth all help to stabilize an open, patent airway. As we know, breathing is key to life, so let's start when they are little with the RIGHT information.

     Let's ask questions, learn and advocate for ourselves and our children's future. Dr. O'Rourke's information is based in solid science and years of clinical experience. We can tell you first hand the difference she makes in the children that we refer to her practice. So tune in and be EXCITED because you are about to learn information that will improve your health and the long term health of your child!
