Many dentists want to learn more about providing tongue- and lip-tie releases to their patients, but struggle to find the right course and can't find enough time away from work and family to take it. They also feel underprepared to start treating these patients after simply attending a conference or a weekend course. Meanwhile, they see patients in their practice daily with significant tongue- and lip-ties and know that something needs to be done.

Tongue-Tied Academy is an evidence-based and clinically informed all-in-one learning experience. With 12+ hours of professionally produced video, you’ll learn to assess and diagnose tongue-ties in all ages, different treatment strategies, collaboration with other team members, and the practical steps to implement these procedures into your practice. Dozens of clinical cases and Virtual Shadowing allows you to experience these patients and the procedures up-close and without leaving work or family.


Who Is This Program For?


Tongue-Tied Academy was created for dentists, physicians, and other practitioners who regularly work with, or want to expand their skills to work with, infants and children and want to deepen their knowledge of this emerging field. Our goal is to ensure you are prepared to assess tongue-tie patients, able to identify and diagnose properly and build your confidence in treatment decisions.

Meet Dr. Baxter

Dr. Richard Baxter is a board-certified pediatric dentist and Diplomate of the American Board of Laser Surgery who has performed tongue- and lip-tie procedures more than 4,000 times. He is a nationally recognized speaker on tongue-ties, and author of the best-selling book, Tongue-Tied: How a Tiny String Under the Tongue Impacts Nursing, Speech, Feeding, and More.

 It wasn't until after Dr. Baxter's dental education and pediatric residency program that he discovered his own tongue-tie. The fact that he went undiagnosed for so long, even after being immersed in the dental field, helped him to recognize that others were living limited lives because of their tongue-ties too- including his three daughters. Now, he's on a mission to help educate providers and parents so that they can get the right treatment sooner.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Will I be ready to treat patients after only viewing this course?

    Our goal is that after viewing and understanding all of the modules and treatment videos, you will be much better prepared than most providers who begin to do these procedures in their office. This is the course that I wish I had access to before treating my first patient. Certainly, some will feel confident to begin treating patients after viewing this course, while others will want to shadow or view the procedures live and in-person. We do offer our Advanced Live Patient Course at our office with limited spots per month that allows a hands-on and confidence-boosting experience to four attendees at a time. For more information, visit

  • Who is the primary audience for this course?

    The primary audience for this course is dentists of all specialties and physicians and surgeons working with the pediatric population.

  • Will I receive CE credits for this course?

    We are able to offer dental CE credits (ADA-CERP) for those who need verification of credits for licensure reasons. Just let us know after you finish your course, and we will happily provide them through our partnership with Affordable CE Credits who handles the paperwork. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide medical CME credits or other types of credits (speech, lactation, etc.) at this time.

  • Does this course teach about treating adults?

    This course will discuss examining and diagnosing a tongue-tie in adults. We will show treatment techniques, discuss myofunctional therapy, and have case studies and treatment videos on adults. The main focus of the course is on infants, children, and adolescents. If you want to treat adults, in addition to viewing this course, we would highly recommend Dr. Zaghi's Breathe Course as well and partnering with or training a myofunctional therapist for the best results.
