Kalee Olmstead, Crested Butte, Colorado
Kalee Olmstead is a Registered Dental Hygienist and Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist on the Western Slope of Colorado. She is passionate about helping people achieve optimal health. After fourteen years in dentistry, she began questioning current dental trends and techniques and the long-term impacts they may have on jaw joints, spinal alignment, facial growth and sleep apnea. The search for answers led her to Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy and courses with Patrick to learn the Buteyko Breathing Method. She enjoys teaching clients of all ages how to improve their dental hygiene, retrain muscles of the head and neck, correct posture and reduce breathing to allow for better oxygenation and health. With the Buteyko Breathing Method she has helped people improve asthma symptoms, reduce apnea episodes, improve facial aesthetics and enhance sports performance. She sees patients in person or via Skype. Please call or email and she will happily discuss your concerns.

Dr. Frank Seaman, Silverthorne and Colorado Springs
Dr. Frank Seaman graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point. After graduation, he went on to dental school and then completed a general practice residency and then a three year Prosthodontics residency. Prosthodontists treat complex/ comprehensive restorative dental patients, to include airway management patients. Current airway management protocols are being challenged with less invasive approaches such as the Buteyko method. Dr. Seaman completed his Diploma in the Buteyko Breathing Method with Patrick McKeown of Buteyko Clinic International in Ireland in 2017. Hundreds of Dr. Seaman’s TMJ patients have experienced remarkable improvement with problems such as dry mouth, teeth clenching/grinding, snoring and gasping, morning fatigue and headaches by learning to nose breathe. Dr. Seaman has found that stopping mouth breathing is the first step toward reducing over breathing and also correcting improper tongue position/function. He has used lip tape to help patients reduce mouth breathing especially at night when they are unaware of mouth breathing.
Dr. Seaman’s patients often complained of sensitivity to the harsh adhesives of OTC tape, and he, therefore, invented a different tape, lipseal tape that is comfortable, non allergenic, has effective lip constraint and at the same time is easy to remove from the sensitive skin around the lips and mouth. More information can be found at www.lipsealtape.com.
As an avid trail runner, Dr Seaman has used Buteyko breathing and lip tape extensively while running at high altitudes in Colorado. He finds improved endurance and performance, less congestion and less urge of thirst while running with tape on his lips. In the spirit of promoting Buteyko breathing during sports, he ran the Pikes Peak Ascent (13.1 miles, 7800ft elevation gain to 14115 ft) with tape on his lips. This was his 12th Pikes Peak Ascent race, but the first with tape. After the run, he realized how important having comfortable tape is, and confirmed the importance of developing a comfortable tape.
