Tongue ties

Tongue ties are found in up to 5% of all newborns and can lead to difficulty in breastfeeding, painful latch for mothers, and decrease in weight gain within the first few weeks of life. Here at ZPD, we strive to ensure both mothers and babies grow and thrive as soon as possible! We perform tongue releases, known as frenectomies, on children of all ages. From improving their feedings, to speech and sleeping, this procedure could be right for you and your family. It is quick, painless and can be performed the day of your consultation. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Dr. Z is a certified expert in frenulum treatment and inspection by the Academy of Orofacial Myofunctional therapists - in other words, she REALLY knows what she's doing.
Kids have a painless experience with the Waterlase laser technology.
Your child will see immediate results with feeding and speech post-surgery.
Z Pediatric Dentistry is the only office in Pearland to offer these services!

"This is THE best pediatric dentist. Hands down. Their office is clean, the staff are the sweetest and Dr. Z? Absolutely amazing. Dr. Z caught a tongue tie in our child last year when everyone else dismissed our concerns and blamed his symptoms on other things. I wish we would have found Dr Z sooner and avoided all the useless medication other drs put him on, but nonetheless we are extremely glad we found her. The frenectomy procedure went well and now I have a little talking/eating machine. I honestly believe if Dr. Z did not catch this, my 2 year old would still be non verbal and a terrible eater. I can't thank Dr. Z enough!"

"Dr. Rasheed is amazing! She recently did laser frenectomy on my grandchild’s lip and tongue tie. The procedure only lasted about 10 minutes and our little one was feeding better immediately. My DIL’s milk supply doubled and baby now has a beautiful latch and stronger suck. She is much happier when eating and healed very quickly. I’ve been a feeding therapist for many years and know this procedure is often necessary. So glad to have Dr. Rasheed in Pearland!!!!"

"I was referred by my lactation consultant. Absolutely love Dr. Z! Step by step she walked my husband and I both through my sons lip and tongue tie. She was educated with the latest info and made us feel comfortable from beginning to end! I also love her cute and quant room for breastfeeding moms! It's such a relief to not have to feed my baby in a bathroom! Her staff is so friendly too. Highly recommend! They go the extra mile!
Update! 12-22
We still love Dr. Z! I personally love how she treats moms. She goes out of her way to train her team to do just the same. She has a light presence and my son still loves her to this day. Wouldn't go anywhere else!"
