There's a tremendous amount of confusion especially about the difference between function and appearance of a tongue-tie.

Dr. Alison Hazelbaker has decades of experience and a level of expertise on this topic that places her at the forefront of the movement to understand growing research and trends.

Tongue-tie has long been a controversial condition.
