Amber L. Stull, RDH, Orofacial Myologist
I was introduced to the dental field in 2008 as a dental assistant for a Pedodontist and quickly learned that I really had a passion for working with people. Starting in 2010 I attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney where I studied Pre-Dental Hygiene. In 2013, I was accepted into the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry’s Dental Hygiene Program. Here, I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene.
I am very passionate about my Dental Hygiene career. My patients’ concerns and oral health are my first priority. What I enjoy the most about my career is working with patients toward a common goal, which is obtaining optimal oral and systemic health. Through continued education, I have learned the importance of oral rest posture and tongue placement and how it can affect the body as a whole.
With some research and added course work, I discovered that I had my own myofunctional issues that had never been addressed. No one had ever told me! This was a turning point and I knew that others could benefit from what I had learned if I had proper training. I studied with the Academy of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (AOMT) and then completed a mentorship which helped me to gain more in depth knowledge.
My goal is to educate the public on Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders and show how Orofacial Myology can help make a difference. I look forward to helping clients overcome their myofunctional obstacles with the treatment that they deserve to live a healthy life!
