Join us for an evening with Bobby Ghaheri, an ENT and leading expert on the identification and treatment of tongue ties. Dr. Ghaheri will present the most recent research and information regarding the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of upper lip tie and posterior tongue ties and the impact on infant feeding abilities.
Target audience: healthcare professionals working with infants, children, and breastfeeding mothers. This information is particularly relevant to lactation consultants, nurses, pediatricians, ENTs, speech therapists, feeding therapists, dentists, oral surgeons and primary care providers.
About Bobby Ghaheri: Dr. Ghaheri did his residency training in otolaryngology/head and neck surgery at Oregon Health Sciences University. In 2007, he joined The Oregon Clinic, the largest multispecialty clinic in Oregon. His clinical interest is helping babies with breastfeeding difficulties. This desire stems from personal experiences, where both of his daughters had significant problems breastfeeding. He is one of a few ENT surgeons in the US who uses an in-office laser treatment for assisting babies to latch on to the breast, in addition to treating older children and adults for certain dental and speech issues.
