Our Holistic Approach
Since 1997, Conroy & MacGilpin Orthodontics has provided comprehensive holistic orthodontics to residents of Wethersﬁeld, Middletown and South Windsor, CT. With overall health in mind, our doctors and staff focus on our patients’ total well-being, not just isolated problems. We believe that the entire human body operates dependently in all of its functions, and that oral health problems can create a domino effect and impede the body’s ability to function harmoniously.
The goal of holistic orthodontics is to provide thorough care, using biocompatible materials, minimally invasive procedures and recommendations intended to prevent future discomfort and damage. By detecting symptoms that signify potential problems, our team can address issues before they escalate to cause further oral and overall health concerns. We care for the complete person, not just their teeth. We will listen to your concerns, addressing functionality, health, longevity, maintainability, phonetics, speech, myofunctional balance and esthetics.
As a holistic orthodontic practice, our team seeks to improve our patients’ quality of life through orthodontic care that respects and honors the entire body.
Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy
Annie-Karine Lamoureux is a certified speech-language pathologist, certified myofunctional therapist, kinesiotaping therapist, and the owner of Language Reflection, LLC.
Annie-Karine first became interested in orofacial myofunctional disorders in 2008, after noticing that her son had an open-mouth posture. She pursued her education to deepen her understanding of the function of the orofacial musculature as it pertains to speech, swallowing, resting posture and noxious habits. Annie-Karine started her private practice in 2010, and she is now excited to provide orofacial health services at the offices of Conroy and MacGilpin Orthodontics.
