Myofunctional Therapy & Buteyko Breathing

Read Bio

After completing a Graduate degree in Organic Chemistry at the University of Alberta, I went on to work as Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Saint Mary’s University College. Once I had my two beautiful children, I took some time to spend with my family and enjoy the precious moments that go by way too fast! When I decided to go back to work, I realized that my passion was working with people in the field of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy!

As a member of the Academy of Applied Myofunctional Sciences (AAMS), I completed the Comprehensive Introduction to Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy and Co-Morbidities of Sleep/TMD/Posture with the Academy of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (AOMT). In 2016, I also finished the Introductory Training in Orofacial Myology at the Coulson Institute under the direction of Sandra Coulson. Recently, I received my Personal Training Specialist Certification and became certified in the Buteyko Breathing Method so I can help patients achieve better breathing and better overall health.

I believe that Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy is truly a dynamic and exciting profession that is critical in treating patients with improper tongue resting position, muscular imbalance in their face and neck, TMD pain, sleep apnea, and malocclusion. I am very proud to be working alongside my husband Thayne in an environment that is focused on helping patients gain the wellness they deserve. I am passionate about my career, and educating my patients on the positive benefits of having proper oral posture and nasal breathing.

In my free time you’ll find at the gym, walking my two dogs, and spending time with my family, as we explore Calgary, travel to new places and make incredible memories!

I was born & raised in Airdrie, moving away to Vancouver to complete my Dental Hygiene Diploma. I graduated from Vancouver College of Dental Hygiene in 2015 and moved back home to start my career. I enjoy being involved in this constantly evolving industry. 

Improving patients’ oral health as well as systemic health, while creating a comfortable experience in the dental chair, is a few reasons why I love being a hygienist. I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing team at Blunston Dental Group and work alongside Dr. Blunston!

When I'm not working you'll find me shopping, scoping out Pinterest for a brand new recipe to try or planning my next get away!

Born and raised in small town Saskatchewan, I have always desired to work in oral health. Heading to college directly after high school, I graduated with my diploma in Dental Hygiene. Since starting as a licensed hygienist in 1999, I have had the privilege of working with patients in Saskatchewan, British Columbia and now Airdrie, Alberta.

Dental health is a passion of mine as it plays a vital role in our overall health. After 25 years as a hygienist, I am constantly learning best practices in patient care and how to grow alongside use of the latest technology. Dentistry is ever evolving and I am so fortunate to be a team member of the Blunston Dental Group.

When not at the office I am busy with my two sons and dogs. Soccer and martial arts keep us on the go!

My passion for dentistry started when I was 16 years old, after having my braces removed! My confidence grew immediately and I knew I wanted to help others get that same feeling. In my grade 12 year, I started working in a dental practice to gain knowledge in the field.

I went on to do my education at Vancouver Island University in 2014. The biggest thing I love about dentistry is that it is always evolving, and there are always new things to learn about.

Born and raised on the West Coast, I’m an Island girl at heart! However, I am very excited to now be living in Airdrie with my husband and our adorable rescue cat, Taco. When I’m not looking at teeth, you'll find me playing various sports, working on my next crochet project, or exploring the province we now call home.

I was born and raised in Newfoundland and Labrador where I completed my Dental assisting program in 2010 with the addition of my Orthodontic Module in 2020. I moved to Alberta in 2014, and spent 5 years in a pediatric office, after this time I was ready to return to a general dental office.

After transitioning back into general dentistry, I have found my love and passion for Dental Assisting all over again by joining the team at Blunston Dental Group. We are continually learning not only about the oral cavity, but the how our oral health is connected to the overall health of the body. I passionately enjoy seeing the happiness on people's faces when they can smile with pride again because they are proud of the way their teeth look and function.

When I am not at work, you can find me with my loving husband Ian chasing our 5 children around (Kylie, Seth, Isabelle, Kaitlyn, and Conner) to hockey games and soccer games, dance lessons and baseball games. I also love being at home spending time with our 3 French Bulldog babies: Steve, Todd, and Piper!

I have recently moved back to Alberta and very happy to be living in Airdrie. I graduated from dental assisting at SAIT in 2011 and went on to complete my orthodontic module in 2014. Recently I got my CDAAC sedation certification.

I’m very grateful for having the opportunity to work with many specialists which include periodontist, endodontist, and orthodontist during my career. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry especially getting to know my patients on a personal level. I’m so happy to be part of Blunston Dental Group and learning so many different procedures and treatments that we offer.

Outside of work, you will find me with my 5-year-old son out and about shopping, playing at the arcade and indoor play facilities, bowling, and at soccer practice.
