Doctor of Dental Surgery Meggie Graham grew up in a family of dentists in a health-centered, progressive community in Madison, Wisconsin. She studied dentistry at Marquette University School of Dentistry. She sought advanced training under the mentorship of Dr. Soroush Zaghi, founder of The Breathe Institute, where she polished her skills and techniques for optimizing breathing and oral health.

Wellness Services Offered:

Untethered offers many different treatment options for dentistry, as well as for airway and tongue-tie issues. These include tongue tie surgery (frenectomy), myofunctional therapy, sleep studies, TMJ and facial pain treatments, diagnostic imaging, and infant feeding assessments and therapy.

Philosophy of Healing

“Oral health is crucial to overall health,” Graham emphasizes. “The mouth is the beginning of our gut and is vital to communication, breathing and nutrition.”

“Breathing, sleep disorders and subsequent problems are intertwined and multifactorial. We need to look at these things comprehensively. That’s why we look at function and structure and treat each patient individually. We have a sleep physician as well as an ear, nose and throat myofunctional therapist on our team to do skeletal expansion, tongue-tie releases and more in order to optimize function,” states Dr. Graham.

Graham’s patients range in age from newborns to people in their 80s. She stresses that prevention and early detection is key for tongue and airway issues, though it is never too late to intervene.
