Meet Our Team
At Dr. Paige Prather’s lip and tongue-tie practice, we offer personalized treatment planning, especially geared toward infants and nursing mothers, from an all-female staff.

We bring our experience and understanding as parents to work with us every day, and we go above and beyond to make sure patients feel welcome and are completely comfortable when they visit with us. In addition to our team’s gentle understanding, they are also proud to put their expertise in dental and medical insurance coverage to work making your treatments more affordable.
