Greg Notestine, DDS
  • If you can't get to either the East or West Coast where most of the breastfeeding-friendly or Posterior Tongue-Tie -knowledgeable doctors are, Kotlow has been known to recommend this dentist near Dayton Ohio. A friend of mine took her son here after being told by a pediatric ENT in Indianapolis that his tongue tie wasn't a problem, and that she should bottle-feed him. She said Dr. Notestine and his staff were very friendly, encouraging, and willing to help. Here is his site.
