There is room for greater awareness among dental professionals and patients regarding the importance of orofacial myofunctional therapy in presurgical and rehabilitative care. 

Rebecka Clark’s programs highlight the benefits of utilizing an allied healthcare team to provide both recovery and preventative orofacial care services in the office and comfort of patients’ homes. 

Rebecka is a military veteran who served in the US Navy during 9-11 and participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Southern Watch. After her service, she joined the Florida Army National Guard and assisted in Hurricane Katrina efforts. She started her career in dentistry in 2009 and became a hygienist in 2015. During her studies, she developed a passion for treating orofacial disorders and pain due to her own experience with facial surgery.

She aims to educate healthcare providers on the benefits of a comprehensive approach to orofacial recovery by combining integrative therapy techniques for optimal results.
