Product Overview

Digital Conference: A Day with Dr. Hazelbaker on Tongue-tie, Posterior-tie, "Lip-Tie" and "Buccal Tie."
Join Dr. Hazelbaker for this live one-day presentation/discussion on all things "tied." Dr. Hazelbaker will present two presentations followed by discussion of participant concerns/questions related to the subject matter. Participants will have a chance to share, ask questions, discuss specific cases, vent, and propose solutions and strategies for addressing today's claims about what is being called "Tethered Oral Tissues."
The Schedule:
9:00 am - 10:30 am: Presentation: To Clip or Not to Clip: The Evidence for Tongue-tie and Frenotomy
10:30- 11:00 am: Q & A for To Clip or Not to Clip.
11:00-11:15 am: Coffee, Tea and Bio-break on your own.
11:15-12:45: Discussion: Is it really a tongue-tie? In this discussion section participants get to weigh-in about what is and is not a tongue-tie, when a baby should be sent for surgery, and frenotomy vs. frenectomy.
12:45-1:45 PM: Lunch on your own
1:45-3:15: Presentation: Maxillary Lip Tie, Buccal Tie, and Posterior Tie: Are they Real or Imagined?
3:15-3:30 PM: Coffee, Tea and Bio-break on your own. 
3:30-5:00 PM: Discussion: What are your notions about these entities? What do you do if you live in a community where over-diagnosis, practitioner cancelling, and infant harm are occurring? Do we need to "tame" the TOTs industry?
