Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist and Oral Health Therapist

Cheree is an Oral Health Therapist and has been practicing Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy  since 2014.   She graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Applied Health Sciences (Oral Health) in 2000 and has worked in a variety of dental practices since, in Sydney and Brisbane.  Currently she practices dentistry in a busy neuromuscular, sleep and orthopaedic orthodontic practice in Brisbane.

She has a strong preventive focus which she applies to all aspects of her life.  Her own personal experiences with mouth breathing, jaw pain, headaches as well as seeing her own children develop poor myofunctional habits, led her on a journey towards studying Orofacial Myology.

Cheree is also an educator and inventor through her other business - The Centre of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy.  With her co-founder, Bridget Ingle, they run various workshops for health professionals and have produced an orofacial measuring device, the MyoMate, which is sold all around the world.

Maritza is a gentle and enthusiastic practitioner who is highly driven to provide exceptional care for her clients. Graduating from the University of Newcastle with a Bachelor in Oral Health with Distinction and being awarded “The Golden Scaler”  for recognition of outstanding accomplishments and clinical performance in 2015, Maritza has worked in a variety of dental practices in NSW, Singapore and now QLD.

 

She has a strong focus on disease prevention and strives to educate and empower clients to care for and improve their oral care habits. With a strong interest in health promotions, Maritza has presented on oral health topics and volunteered her time to a number of health promotion campaigns in Australia and Singapore.

 

Maritza has an active interest in all aspects of health and wellness - as an avid learner she found myofunctional therapy through professional development courses and soon realised many of her own personal health, sleep and jaw concerns were connected to poor myofunctional habits and mouth breathing. This along with seeing similar concerns in her patients drove her to wanting to provide people with the services she wished she had earlier in life.

 

Outside of clinical practice Maritza enjoys spending her time with friends and family, in nature, exercising or at the beach.
