Dr. Mark Persaud is a co-owner of Tongue-Tie Laser Center of Atlanta located in Sandy Springs, Georgia. He completed his undergraduate studies in New York City, and graduated from Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry. Aside from practicing general dentistry, his personal family life has taken him down a path that has actually chosen him. Having two children who suffered from the symptoms of tethered oral tissues (ties), and countless other medical providers who stated simply that they were “colicky” and would “grow out of it”, he and his wife began to seek out alternative solutions. Attending numerous continuing education courses, and seeing the vast improvements by implementing airway focused practices on his own children, he felt catapulted into a world of medicine he became truly passionate about. He is a member of the Academy of Applied Myofunctional Sciences (AAMS), and has taken courses with the American Laser Study Club, taught by pioneers in the tongue-tie field. He is also an ambassador of The Breathe Institute led by Dr. Zaghi, creator of the “Zaghi Method” (functional frenuloplasty).
Dr. Persaud has dedicated his academic and clinical training to create a center in which multidisciplinary therapies and medicine focus on development throughout a human life, from infancy to adulthood.
