Hi Guys!

Recently, we decided to record a video on how to hook up the Medibyte Jr for an at home sleep study. This video is MUCH easier to understand than the handout we send home. Check it out below!


Have a great day!

 Karen Adler, Dr. Patrick McKeown, Dr. Michael Adler, LVI 

Dr. Adler and I attended Patrick McKeown’s 3-day workshop “The Oxygen Advantage” at LVI on Feb. 3-5, 2016.

As a new part-time member of his team, I was also hoping to...

Yesterday we were hit by a major storm here in Boulder county.  The crew managed to make it to the office and home safe, and it's a good thing we did.  It seems as though we were one of the only dental offices actually open in Boulder.  We saw 5 emergencies in the office yesterday ranging from broken crowns, crowns that fell off, chipped front teeth, and an abscessed tooth. The team was able to take care of all of these people including a 5 year old boy with an abscess.  Speaking of infected (abscessed) teeth, these kinds of infections are nothing to be taken lightly.  We advised the mother that the child may need to go the emergency room...

I am excited to be taking courses on orofacial myofunctional disorders and myofunctional therapy at LVI the first week of February. The first course addresses issues with improper tongue posture and swallowing. The tongue plays a huge role in sleep apnea, snoring, TMJ pain, orthodontic relapses, open bite, speech, posture and swallowing to name a few. Treating orofacial myofunctional disorders are critical to the successful treatment of many dental issues. 

I hope to be able to incorporate myofunctional therapy into my treatments immediately.  It seems like I am seeing more and more open bite orthodontic cases as a result of a...
