The New York Times has published “Inside the Booming Business of Cutting Babies’ Tongues” on December 18th, 2023. At Lexington Smile Studio, we are glad that attention is brought to this topic, as there has been an overwhelming number of providers who have recently started doing lip and tongue tie releases, and treat these procedures as a business only.

At Lexington Smile Studio, we have been providing these services for more than 10 years working in close collaboration with lactation consultants, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, myofunctional therapists and pediatricians. We are not a one stop practice.

Dr Rosenberg first and now Dr McElligott have been caring for infants and their mothers for a long time with dedication, empathy, understanding and teamwork with the other specialists involved. As Dr McElligott explains to parents during consultations, this is a process not a procedure.

Our success has been based over the years on word of mouth from the families we have treated. Our success is the magnitude of babies who are now thriving because of the release they received by us and, just as importantly, the magnitude of babies who didn’t receive it, simply because we directed the families to the right specialists.

We truly care for all parents and their infants’ well being and we hope that this article will raise public awareness so that families will put their babies in the hands of the right providers.
