In networking with lactation consultants across the US and beyond, there are very few people that recognize posterior tongue ties. Our experience has been that most pediatricians and ENTs (Ear, Nose, Throat doctor) do not recognize these tongue ties located farther back or at the base of the tongue. Unfortunately there is no formal education in the medical schools that I am aware of that teach anything about tongue ties. When we became a bottle feeding society, people forgot about tongue ties.
