I have been in the dental and orthodontic industry for over thirty years and have had the opportunity to work with some incredible people. My background in traditional orthodontics is really what brought me to joining a team where learning about the causes of crooked teeth and poor jaw development changed my career path forever. Sleep disordered breathing in children is very common and can lead to a myriad of health issues. I work with both children and adults to restore proper breathing patterns to optimize their health.
I currently work in multiple dental offices in Northwest Arkansas providing a team approach to better health. I am trained in myofunctional therapy, breathing retraining, and pre & post-op frenectomy protocols for all ages. I was certified in the Buteyko Method by Dr. John Flutter in 2013 and have used these methods to successfully retrain breathing for many of our patients. I have continued my quest for knowledge by joining the Oxygen Advantage Team. A comprehensive assessment of an individual’s function and breathing can often bring to light symptoms that are indicative of poor habits and tendencies that could be improved by the Oxygen Advantage Program. Snoring and sleep issues can be treated with the proper techniques.
I have seen, first hand, the benefits of what breathing retraining can do. It has become my passion to help as many people as possible live a healthier life!
