Dr. Molly Hayes

Early Childhood Oral Development
Infant Tongue-Tie Specialist


I'm Dr. Hayes

I help patients sleep, breathe, and live better with an airway-focused, functional approach to oral health.

Hi! I'm Dr. Molly! I've been a practicing dentist for ten years, but pivoted my practice of dentistry to focus on airway and sleep health in 2021. I believe that proper oral-facial development in infancy and early childhood is the key that unlocks overall health.

my practice philosophy in a nutshell:

I believe that the mouth is a central component of overall health and that the first few years of life are crucial in its development. I like to take my time with my patients, taking a deep dive past the typical "cavity check" that most dentists do. I investigate your nutrition, sleep habits, orthodontic history, and breathing patterns. I like to think of myself as a physician of the oral cavity!

when i'm not practicing:

You'll find me in the garden (I can grow tomatoes and hydrangeas and not much else), at the farmer's market, or scrolling home renovation blogs. My four young children follow close behind wherever I go! I love good design, handwritten notes, and a really terrific cheeseburger.

The doctor of the future will give no medication but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.
