WHO TREAT'S OMD'S?

There are some misconceptions that have emerged in recent years regarding the "profession" of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist (often being referred to as OMT).  OMT is only an acronym that stands for many things.  There is currently no existing licensure in the United States that establishes OMT as a profession.  Instead the identification and treatment of Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMD's) remains a Scope of Practice for specialized and licensed healthcare professionals who have secondary education and training related to the orofacial complex.  Educational and background training vary widely. Do your due diligence and request  licensure and accreditation information before registering for a course of signing a contract for services in the field.
