A lot of people think that doing a dental examination for a child is much easier than to examine an adult - after all, they only have 20 teeth. However, learning how to guide your child’s development so that they have beautiful facial development and smile as they grow is not as simple as you might think. You should take into account thumb sucking, breathing, swallowing habits, vertical as well as horizontal growth. Dr Min Stephenson (Deng) has done a lot of post-graduation studies on these topics. She still thinks that there is a life-time of study to do. She is here to help you decide when to simply monitor their growth and when to intervene and take action.

“we believe that ideal development of the face and jaws is dependent on correct 'oral posture'. Correct posture should be with the tongue resting against the palate, with the lips sealed and the teeth in or near contact. We are committed to improving unattractive faces and crowded teeth by guiding the growth of the jaws horizontally while the patient is young, by means of appliances, supported by postural training of the tongue, lips and cheeks” “
