Jessica Glover

Jessica Glover, RDH, COM®️ is a Certified Orofacial Myologist, trained through the International Association of Orofacial Myology (IAOM) as well as a Registered Dental Hygienist.  Throughout her 25 year career in dental hygiene, Jessica was always looking at “whole body health” while treating her patient’s preventive dental needs.  She knew there was much more to learn between the mouth/body connection.  She started looking at the “why”.  Why did her patients have orthodontic relapase?  Why did her patients grind and clench their teeth?  Why did her patients suffer from TMJ pain?    

From that point Jessica’s education turned to orofacial myology, which is the study and treatment of oral and facial muscles as they relate to dentition, chewing and swallowing, and speech.  As a certified orofacial myologist, Jessica is able to retrain the muscles of the face and mouth to correct functional patterns of nasal breathing, swallowing, chewing and at rest.   This exercise-based therapy will help resolve issues associated with sleep, breathing, posture, orthodontic relapse, cervical neck tension and jaw pain.  She also works with children (and adults) to eliminate oral habits such as thumb sucking, pacifier use or chewing on non-nutritive items.   

Jessica is constantly adding additional education courses such as Tethered Oral Tissues (i.e. tongue tie/ankyloglossia), Myobrace training system and is in the process of studying Buteyko Breathing to become a certified Buteyko Breathing Educator.    She is an active member of the IAOM (International Association of Orofacial Myologists), ADHA (American Dental Hygiene Association), CDHA (California Dental Hygiene Association), and AAOSH (American Academy of Oral Systemic Health). 

When not seeing clients via telehealth, or working in the dental office, Jessica enjoys spending time with her husband and two teenage kids.  She also has a “mini farm” that keeps her busy with her horses, goats, chickens, dogs, and barn cat.

Amelia Tavares

I am a Registered Dietician Nutritionist (RDN) with 15 years of experience caring for a variety of clients in clinics, hospitals and home health care settings. I really enjoy working closely with children, adults and families to help them reach their nutritional goals. I believe working with children struggling with feeding challenges in a gentle and systematic approach can lead to building lifelong healthy relationships with food. I believe working with the family as a unit helps me to understand the family goals and how best to reach them in a realistic manner. As a busy mom of three children and someone who loves cook, enjoys all foods and enjoys being active, I believe I understand the challenges many families face which allows me tailor achievable goals to each individual and family. 

I am also an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Over the last 10 years, I have had the pleasure of working with many mothers and babies to reach their breastfeeding goals. I have enjoyed working in hospitals, setting up comprehensive lactation programs, training other healthcare professionals, private consulting, running support groups and working with a midwifery clinic. Some of my greatest experiences have come from nursing my three daughters. I can fully understand the challenges a nursing mother goes through. I passionately believe that the support a mother receives will help her succeed in meeting her nursing goals – from the successful first latch to weaning from the breast. Working closely with a mother-baby dyad brings me great joy.
