“Wow!! Incredible office. After two months of majorly struggling with feedings for my baby we finally have the problem fixed. Dr. Prather and her staff were EXCELLENT and helped me feel so at ease even as my newborn was having to have a procedure done. After having her tongue and lip ties dealt with she is already nursing like a pro just hours later! Couldn’t be more pleased.”

Naomi C., Franklin, TN

“We loved Dr. Prather, and her assistants were the sweetest, most awesome group of people. Our daughter had an upper lip tie, cheek banding, and a tongue tie, which was a very quick procedure (maybe 5 minutes total). Her guidance on healing stretches and the follow up appointment were so informative and helpful to two parents who were so sad to see our daughter struggle so much to latch her first month of life. Our baby’s quality of life has significantly improved, and mom’s breasts are no longer on the receiving end of unintentional abuse! Would recommend Dr. Prather (and her tincture!) to any parent who wants to give their child some relief.”

Haley B., Murfreesboro, TN

“Dr. Prather is an amazing dentist - even more so because she has helped two of my babies with lip & tongue ties. The first child was done 3+ years ago & saved our breastfeeding journey. This time i didn’t waste any time. I called her while we were still in the hospital to schedule a consult & revision in the same day. Thankfully i did because he needed revisions as well. She’s quick & easy and of course great with my babies. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to do this procedure. I would choose this method of treatment over allowing my pediatrician or the hospital do this procedure. Healing is quick & bleeding is minimal!”

Advanced Laser Treatment

Why choose laser lip & tongue-tie treatment

01

Less
Discomfort

One laser is not the same as the next. We use the best type of laser for this procedure. It is a CO2 true laser and not a hot tip so it reduces discomfort bothe during and after the procedure.

02

Faster
Healing

Thanks to the laser’s narrow focus, the nearby oral tissues are left untouched, leading to a shorter and easier recovery process.

03

Little to No Chance of Infection

The laser actually disinfects the area as it works to virtually eliminate the chance of complications.

04

Less
Bleeding

The laser causes less bleeding than scissors or scalpel allowing for a clear field of view and more accurate procedure as well as less chance of complications post operatively.
