About the Event

Holistic orthodontics, what is it?


How our patients breathe, eat, and sleep impacts their oral health.

Holistic orthodontics approaches the treatment of one’s malocclusion differently: correcting the bad bite by addressing the underlying cause in addition to straightening the smile. The mindset has changed from viewing malocclusion as the primary problem orthodontics should fix, to crooked teeth being a symptom of an underlying cause.

The following course objectives will be covered:

1. Define the term holistic orthodontics.

2. Describe the difference between a traditional versus a holistic orthodontic treatment objective.

3. Recognize tethered oral tissues & their influence on treatment plans.

4. Discuss how to utilize this approach to enhance your patient care and treatment results.


Catherine Murphy, DDS, MSD enjoys private practice and serving as adjunct clinical faculty at Indiana University NW Dental Hygiene Program. Dr. Murphy practiced general dentistry and served as adjunct clinical faculty at IU School of Dentistry prior to completing her orthodontic residency in 2010. She is the author of two pictures books, the award winning "Dear Momma..." and newly released "Dear Friend...Do You Know About Tongue Ties?", focusing on the connection between oral and overall health. She reaches caregivers nationwide through her podcast, Dear Momma with Dr. Murphy. The show provides insights into the holistic and collaborative care approach to orthodontic treatment. Additionally, she is a co-creator of the self-care movement, Take3ForMe, designed to support harmony between career, family and self. This practice combines her love of myofunctional therapy exercises, breathwork and affirmations.

Dr. Murphy's love of dentistry goes beyond appreciating the beauty of a bicuspid. She is grateful that dentistry provided the support needed to transform her son's health to transform from failing to thriving. She is grateful to share her passion for approaching dentistry and orthodontics with a holistic approach.
