Dr. Darcy

Dr. Darcy was one of the first practitioners in Minnesota and Wisconsin to offer tongue and lip releases to infants and continues to support this practice and has spoken at several clinics, hospitals and meetings over the years. This passion has expanded into more in depth understanding of tongue function, arch development and airway.
