Summary

Timbrey is a myofunctional therapist with a degree in dental hygiene. With Timbrey’s passion for holistic health, she has studied multiple subjects to bring the best knowledge to her patients. She started her journey 15 years ago and continues to become educated in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD), Nutrition, Tongue Tie, Lip Tie, and Myofunctional Therapy.

Since she has been practicing Myofunctional Therapy and witnessed how it has changed the lives of her patients, she has become extremely passionate about working with mothers and their infants’ tongue and lip tie issues. Assisting a mother and her baby in connecting through breastfeeding is unlike anything else! This drove her to want to become a lactation consultant so that she could help patients even more and is now pursuing a certification to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC®).

Timbrey’s passion and dedication have sculpted her to be an expert in using Myofunctional Therapy as means of changing lives for her patients. She prides herself in having been able to learn from and work alongside leaders in the field of Myofunctional Therapy such as Joy Moeller and Barbara Greene. She provides in office training to medical-dental professionals, alongside Barbara Greene.

Timbrey continues to foster her learning by building bonds through professional organizations that focus on myofunctional sciences, dental hygiene, lactation consulting, and biological dental medicine.
