Question and discussion time
Dr Mary Bourke
Mary has a unique and experiential perspective on children’s health and development- particularly as it relates to oral facial function.The daughter of pioneering Australian dentist Dr Kevin Bourke, she grew up surrounded by his passion for human health and learning about the intricacies of oral facial growth, breathing and the origins of human nutrition. Mary has been in Chiropractic Practice for over 28 years and is a great believer in the synergistic benefits of working with other health practitioners in a collaborative approach. This belief in collaboration has been very much a part of the philosophy behind Myo Munchee and is critical to getting best patient outcomes for oral facial and cranial growth, neurology and function of the stomagnathic system. One of her key professional goals with both chiropractic care and as the CEO of Myo Munchee is to spread the word about the benefits of chewing and the denaturing effects of long term pacifier use.

We want you to deepen your understanding of this most versatile tool and to do so we have prepared an expert training team from fields in Dental, Speech and Language Pathology, Chiropractic and Myofunctional therapy. They will come together to share insights and provide specific information relevant to your field to support simple integrations.
Many Allied health practitioners along with dentists are working to provide better patient outcomes which often cross over. Whether it is facial growth, airway improvement, speech management or general health. Yet the number one piece of the puzzle that gets raised in every instance is the patients compliance and response. During and after the event you will find simple replicable activities to merge these elements together without burdening your team.
Our event aims to not replace existing systems but to enhance and maximise through greater patient adherence and engagement; whilst reinforcing neurological patterns and muscle conditioning with the most adaptive intra-oral appliance in the world.
