Every child deserves a
Healthy Start™


Dr. Raman at Smiles by Design believes that these Healthy Start™ programs lead to happier, healthier kids.

The Healthy Start™ system is an oral appliance therapy, which addresses the root causes of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). Research has shown that SDB-induced oxygen deprivation is a major contributing factor to the childhood health disorders shown below. The Healthy Start™ system has been specifically designed to promote the proper growth and development of the jaw and airway to optimize airflow and promote proper nasal breathing while straightening your child’s teeth. As your child’s jaw and airway develop many of the symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing disappear.

When kids can breathe properly, they can begin to learn, grow, and blossom into their true and fullest potential. Research and data show that estimate nine out of ten children suffer from SDB.

These children experience a wide range of debilitating SDB- related health disorders, such as:


  • Lower IQ

  • Chronic Allergies

  • Aggressive Behavior

  • Mouth Breathing

  • Nightmares

  • Snoring

  • Irritability

  • Frequent Headaches

  • Swollen Adenoids & Tonsils

  • Daytime Drowsiness

  • Crooked Teeth

  • Restless Sleep

  • Bedwetting

  • Dark Circles Under the Eyes

  • Slow and Delayed Growth

  • Low Grades in Math, Science & Spelling
