Did you meet your parenting match when it came time to prise your child’s dummy from their grip?
At The Thumb Sucking Clinic, we’ve helped countless parents help their child quit their dummy habit. From overwhelmed parents who’ve simply not known where to start, to frustrated families who’ve had to abort Operation Dummy after just a few days – or hours – after one dummy-less child became too unhappy to handle
If you’re worried that your child has or will have their beloved dummy longer than they should, and are concerned about the associated teeth and jaw development issues, the team at The Thumb Sucking Clinic are the go-to pros. We’ll shower you with expert advice, ideas, and the correct information to help your child stop sucking their dummy the first time (and well before they think about moving out of home). The TSC team can also provide a formalised dummy-quit program with your child if required.

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy Programs
Individualised Programs for babies, kids and adults
We love helping to grow faces that are healthy and look great. But when it comes to faces, one size fits all does not apply.
That’s why our face and mouth muscle therapy programs are individualised and all about the patient. We focus on the issue, whether its a tongue rest problem, swallowing issues or an open mouth, and create a program that’s not only individualised, but also fun and engaging. And we work best in a team! That’s why we work with Orthodontists, Dentists, ENTs and Doctors to achieve the best results for you.
