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.
