Children have always been a particular focus for Dr. Natasa, especially as she has continued to earnestly seek after the best practices to improve the lives of her patients. Over time Dr. Natasa recognized that many of her younger patients were often presenting as mouth breathers, tooth grinders, and tongue-thrusters. These symptoms led her to study and complete the Airway Mini Residency, thereby, giving her the ability to identify and address the causes of her patients symptoms.
Dr. Natasa is committed to helping her patients improve the quality of their lives. She firmly believes in treating the root causes of health problems rather than solely treating symptoms. She is a trained Myobrace educator and licensed Orofacial Myology Therapist. As she continues to help patients correct bad dental and lifestyle habits, she has found the study of airway dentistry to be particularly fascinating and rewarding. She is passionate about serving her patients and helping them breathe, sleep, and live well.
