The Healthy Start 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.

Many kids with the above health disorders are being “treated” with powerful drugs without evaluating a possible root cause. Our office can evaluate your child and indicate if there is a breathing and sleeping issue in your child. Please take the sleep and speech questionnaire to make an initial evaluation of your child.

Addresses the Root Cause of Sleep Disordered Breathing

There is a silent epidemic affecting 9 out of 10 children. Sleep Disordered Breathing manifests itself in a variety of symptoms that are many times ignored or misdiagnosed such as ADD/ADHD, Allergies, Snoring, Mouth Breathing and more. The HealthyStart™ system identifies these symptoms, evaluates the underlying root cause, promotes proper oral habits, develops the airway, proper jaw development and results in straight teeth without braces.

Don’t Wait. Early Treatment is Critical

When children are young, their bodies are able to adjust and mold easily, particularly in their mouth and their bone structure. Crowded teeth may force the tongue forward against their teeth, narrowing their dental arch. With dental arches that are constricted, everything gets restricted, including your child’s airway. Breathing properly is necessary for the health of a child.

Mouth Breathing, Snoring and Grinding Teeth

Mouth Breathing & Snoring are common symptoms of a restricted airway.


A sleep deprived child shows the same symptoms as a child with ADD/ADHD. With a HealthyStart™ assessment, parents should rule out the chance of SDB before medicating the child.

Poor Performance in School

Is your child getting proper REM? Lack of decent sleep leads to poor academic performance.


They call it the Silent Crisis. 18% of children, even into and beyond middle school age, are still wetting the bed at night. We have a solution.

Nightmares and Restless Sleep

If your child wakes up screaming at night, this is a very good indication that they may suffer from SDB.

Swollen Tonsils or Adenoids

With mouth breathing, air that is not filtered and humidified through the nose leaves the tonsils and adenoids to do a job they were not designed to do.

Irritability, Anger, Depression, Headaches

A child who is exhausted due to lack of proper oxygen while sleeping has a hard time coping in this depleted state.

An estimated nine out of ten children suffer from Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). These children experience a wide range of debilitating.
