She established and operated her own practice in Mumbai, India, for six years before moving to the United States, where she earned her DMD at Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine.

    The HealthyStart® System is an oral appliance therapy that promotes natural growth and development, which addresses the root causes of SDB.

    The HealthyStart® System has been specifically designed to promote the proper growth and development of the jaw and airway to optimize airflow and promote proper nasal breathing while straightening your child’s teeth. As these areas develop many of the symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing disappear. When kids can breathe properly, they can begin to learn, grow, and blossom into their true genetic potential … just as nature intended.

Our office can evaluate your child and indicate if there is a breathing and sleeping issue. Please take the sleep and speech questionnaire to make an initial evaluation of your child.
