A warm welcome to Connected Dots!

It is heartbreaking for me to see that so many people live their entire lives needlessly suffering from health problems that can easily be addressed. I created this website to raise awareness about how little things can play a big role in the body’s vital balance. I have a background in dental hygiene, however, my services are limited to myofunctional therapy only and not include the practice of dental hygiene. I am delighted to share my knowledge and training with you, to help you connect the dots of your life and health!
