He investigates on Craniofacial Growth and Development, the Patho-Physiology of Functional Disorders in the Cranio-Cervico-Mandibular system and how the craniofacial structures are modified by functional appliance

Fabiola Nossa

Fabiola has been a health professional for more than 25 years. Since 2012 she has been passionate about Orofacial Myofunctional therapy.

She has trained with Joy Moeller, Sandra Coulson in the USA. Also she trained with Esther Gokhale in body posture improvement and trained with Patrick McKeown in the Buteyko breathing method.

Lately she became a Certified Specialist in Orofacial Myology from the Graduate School of Behavioral Health Sciences in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Fabiola has developed a system to integrate Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy in the dental clinic; guiding craniofacial growth and development in children and correcting oral dysfunctions.
