British Society of Myofunctional Therapy

BSMFT

The BSMFT has been set up to promote Myofunctional Therapy (MFT) with an interdisciplinary approach, integrating knowledge and methods from different disciplines and working collaboratively with a common purpose to set goals, make decisions and share resources and responsibilities.

Our board is made up of a team of clinicians from different disciplines working with MFT, keen to promote collaborative clinical work and further research in MFT. Working with patients, we support each other to undertake assessments, diagnosis, intervention, goal-setting and the creation of care plans, involving patients, their families and carers in any discussions about their condition, prognosis and treatment plan.

The BSMFT is designed to support clinicians across the UK and internationally to build interdisciplinary teams.

Our clinical board is happy to guide members in the right direction on their MFT journey, sharing resources, protocols and strategies and learning together from existing and past clinical cases.
