Online Myofunctional Therapy with Barbara J. Greene and Timbrey Lind
How Online Myofunctional Therapy Works
First things first: Barbara will need to learn more about your oral conditions, behaviors and habits so she can determine your ideal treatment plan. So just as in a regular office, you’ll need to fill out some forms before treatment. You will be given an access code so you can complete and submit these forms securely online. You’ll also be asked to upload some clinical photos you’ll take (or have taken) before you submit the forms.
Once you’ve submitted these materials, you’ll be prompted to schedule your appointment with Barbara for evaluation and consultation. The fee for this appointment is $150, which is due upon scheduling.
Meanwhile, Barbara will send you a therapy kit and portfolio of exercise instructions so you’ll be ready once your therapy actually begins.
First Appointment: Evaluation & Consultation
To meet with Barbara online, you will need a high-speed Internet connection and good quality webcam (at least 1.3 mp resolution and 30 fps or better) you can use in a well-lit space. You will also need to have the most current version of Skype installed on your computer.
At your scheduled appointment time, you’ll log into this website and follow the prompt to access Barbara’s online office.
During this first appointment, Barbara will talk with you about your concerns, share her insights and determine whether a full course of myofunctional therapy is appropriate or if a different plan of action might be needed. If therapy is recommended and you choose to pursue it, she’ll give you instructions for next steps
A full course of myofunctional therapy typically lasts a year and happens in two stages.
The Intensive Phase usually lasts 3 to 5 months. You’ll be expected to meet online with Barbara each week for a half hour and do exercises twice a day (about 15 minutes per session).
The Maintenance Phase is to make sure the new muscle patterns you’ve established are really instilled. You’ll continue to meet online with Barbara at agreed upon for several more months.
To find out if online myo is right for you, contact Barbara and tell her a bit about your situation and the kind of help you’re seeking. She’ll then contact you about next steps.
