A note from Dr. Baxter.

Welcome back! Since you’ve learned with me before, you won’t be surprised that I’m constantly devouring the latest research and refining my approach—both as a doctor and as a business owner. The Tongue-Tied Academy Update is the result of those ongoing efforts.

The course builds upon the original, equipping you with advanced strategies to improve patient outcomes. Watch the trailer—and get excited! If you loved the original course, we guarantee this one will be even more impactful. It covers the most requested topics and a ton more.

We jam-packed as much value as we could into this 6-module course.

Here’s exactly what you’ll learn:


Module 1: Introduction to the Update

In this two-video series, Dr. Baxter explains the updated treatment plans for tongue-ties, including a comprehensive history, a full release of the tongue, and expanded follow-up care. He discusses the psychology of old-school and new-school methods and describes the importance of compassionate care.


Module 2: Latest Evidence

In this three-video series, Dr. Baxter details new evidence of the benefits of tongue-tie procedures in children of all ages. He also discusses current events and a new buccal tie classification. You'll also get an updated screening tool to best assess children at well visits.


Module 3: History & Examination Enhancements

In this four-video series, Dr. Baxter explains the importance of getting a thorough history and health assessment and shows you his must-have tools in the exam room. He shows real examples of before-and-after photos and even gives a quick photography lesson for tongue-tie documentation. The FAQs before the procedure are also included in this module.


Module 4: Aftercare & Follow-Up Modifications

This three-video series deep dives into the aftercare process, including managing expectations, frequent check-ins, and troubleshooting. Dr. Baxter also gives a detailed description of those tricky follow-up exercises, with video and pictures to aid in getting them just right. He also answers all the FAQs after the procedure in this module.


Module 5: Virtual Shadowing 2.0

Virtual shadowing is the next best thing to tagging along in real life! Join Dr. Baxter during his appointments, where you're invited to every stage of a tongue-tie consultation, procedure, and follow-up. You'll visit three new patients of all ages and four follow-up patients and see for yourself how we can take a family from surviving to thriving!


Module 6: Conclusion & Test

This module concludes with a test and a survey. Both need to be completed before the coursework is complete and the CE certificate is generated.

You might still be wondering…

You might still be wondering... What is the difference between the full Tongue-Tied Academy Update course and the LITE version of it?

The full Tongue-Tied Academy Update is designed for dentists, physicians, and others who wish to treat this population and perform the release procedure themselves. Like the original LITE course, we offer this LITE update course for therapists, lactation consultants, and others who want to learn, but not perform the procedure. The LITE version does not include treatment and business modules and includes fewer virtual shadowing modules than the full course.

Who is this course for?

The LITE version of Tongue-Tied Academy Update is a shortened version of the flagship update course. It is for speech therapists, myofunctional therapists, lactation consultants, and others who want to deepen their knowledge of this emerging field. It's perfect for those who regularly work with infants and children or those who want to expand their skills to work with this important population.

Do I have to take the original Tongue-Tied Academy LITE course first?

Yes! The update course builds on the fundatmentals taught in the original Tongue-Tied Academy LITE course. If you haven't taken it, you can enroll here.

Will I receive CE credits?

We offer dental CE credits (ADA-CERP) for those who need verification of credits for licensure reasons. The certificate will automatically generate at course completion. CE hours are available through our partnership with Affordable CE Credits, which 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?

Like the original course, the main focus of the udpate course is on infants, children, and adolescents. You will benefit from taking it if you treat adults, but we highly recommend you read about Dr. Zaghi's Breathe Course first. It may be a better fit for you.
