What are Orthotropic Practitioners?
The name “orthotropic practitioner” is another way of saying mewing experts, they practice the branch of orthodontics, called orthotropics which is the study of oral posture & exercises (like mewing) and their effects on the craniofacial structure.
The founder of mewing, Mike Mew, is one of the most widely known orthotropic practitioners. This is mainly due to his “invention” of mewing which became popular among many.
Mike Mew has mentioned his encounters with his patients, and his multiple success in guiding their facial structure into the right direction.
That being said, there are many other practitioners past Mike Mew who are just as equally knowledgeable in this field.
Where Can I Find Orthotropic Practitioners?

Most of these practitioners reside in the US, with only one or two practitioners in certain areas outside the US.
However, if you are determined to find an orthotropic practitioner to help you elevate your facial structure. There are some websites with the contact info & location of many practitioners.
