Welcome to the Queen of Dental Hygiene! I am Barbara; blog post author, biological dental hygienist, orofacial myofunctional therapist, mother, and wife. I am a practicing dental hygienist at Green City Dental in Edmonds, Washington, and myofunctional therapy through my business, Washington Oral Wellness. I love to lecture – be it at our local schools or to a professional audience. I want to share my philosophy and help others achieve not only oral health, but total body health – something to strive for.
When Alexa, my faithful editor (and daughter) pushed and cajoled me into starting a blog, I never thought anyone would be interested in reading about tooth decay, gum disease, oral hygiene, tooth products, or myofunctional therapy. Thankfully, was I ever wrong! You, wonderful readers, have sent me feedback, questions, and comments from all over the globe! I enjoy seeing where this blog wanders. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
