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!

I was born and raised in Lethbridge and moved to Calgary to complete my Dental Assistant Certificate at SAIT in 2014. I relocated back to Lethbridge and worked happily as a dental assistant for four and a half years. When my longtime boyfriend decided to pursue his career in Calgary, I found an amazing home at Blunston Dental Group. I am thrilled to be a part of the team, to learn every day and to educate our patients. If nothing else, patient education is something I feel is incredibly important in today's dental care. Dr. Blunston's office has so much to offer in terms of knowledge, experience and service. In my spare time I can be found in the mountains either hiking or snowboarding. I also enjoy spending time with my family, travelling, bowling and relaxing with our cat, Griffin.

I grew up in a small town just outside of Airdrie. After I finished high school, I moved to Calgary then graduated from SAIT’s Dental Assisting Program in 2007. 4 years later, I bought my first house & moved to Airdrie!

I feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry here at Blunston Dental Group! I take pride in making all my patients feel at ease, building a good rapport is important to me.

In my spare time, I can be found with my husband chasing after our 2 children & 2 rescue dogs. I enjoy spending time at our family cabin in B.C., long distance running & volunteering at local rescue shelters.

We are accepting new patients in Airdrie! We invite you to join the Blunston Dental family today.
