Tamara earned her degree in Dental Hygiene in 2009 from Cerritos College after having many years of experience in the dental field as a dental assistant. She enjoys her clinical experiences and educating about oral and systemic health. Don’t forget to floss!
Tamara’s journey into Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy began with her own personal and family experiences with orofacial dysfunction. Being tongue tied, she went through OMT to eliminate her oral dysfunction. Upon finishing the program, the spark grew for her to continue with the OMT endeavors. In 2016, Tamara began exploring the field of OMT and with extensive training and education, she became a Certified Specialist in Orofacial Myology (CSOM). In 2017, she opened Facial Physique and most recently in 2020, she became a Myomentor Therapy Advisor to oversee and guide other professionals in OMT.
Tamara enjoys working with all ages to improve oral function as it relates to breathing, facial development, and growth. She hopes to build constant awareness within the orofacial community and is a strong advocate in bridging the gap between the medical and dental fields. She is an active member of the National Network of Healthcare Hygienists whose mission is to integrate oral health into medical care.
