- about the instructor -
Sanda Valcu-Pinkerton’s philosophy is to treat people, not problems. One of her primary goals as a therapist is re-patterning and training the orofacial muscles to achieve optimal development. During surgery, she supports Dr. Soroush Zaghi in their functional frenuloplasty procedures through incorporating myofunctional therapy to optimize post-surgery outcomes. Besides her 25+ years of experience working in clinical practice as a Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice (RDHAP), she has continuously increased her knowledge and skill set by becoming a Certified Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist (COM ) and a Buteyko Breathing coach. Sanda’s outstanding work facilitates a patient’s ability to achieve enhanced breathing resulting in superior overall health.
