Dalanna Hanson – Wichita / Kansas
Dalanna Hanson graduated with her Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Hygiene from Wichita State University. During a very fulfilling career in dental hygiene, she began her training in myofunctional therapy and eventually went on to become a certified specialist in orofacial myology. Through the various courses taken through the AOMT, IAOM, AAPMD and Myofunctional Research Center, it became very apparent that nasal breathing is critical to success in her myofunctional therapy program.
She took her first of several courses with Patrick McKeown in 2014 and immediately implemented Buteyko breathing techniques into her therapy. With a passion for airway health, Dalanna finds breathing re-education to be a key component in improving her patients overall health. She has seen for herself the amazing affects that proper breathing has on her patients wellbeing and is so honored to be a part of improving asthma, allergies, sports performance as well as sleep for countless patients.

My grandfather was a pioneer Chiropractor in Kansas, so I grew up understanding that our health care is best managed by working with the body’s own mechanisms and defenses – naturally. So, when diagnosed with bronchiectasis in 2000, I searched for an alternative to the standard pharmaceutical solutions and discovered the Buteyko Breathing Method. Through Buteyko, not only was the bronchiectasis quickly brought under control but (since incorporating Buteyko into my daily life) my overall health has significantly improved as well.
I believe that proper breathing is as important to good health as a nutritious diet and adequate exercise. Since we have some voluntary control over our breathing we can retrain it to be right for our body. Anyone can learn this natural, drug-free method – from a 4 year old to seniors in their 80s. Actually, most of us can benefit from better breathing which helps us to cope with the stresses of life. Breath retraining enables people to breathe better when sleeping, exercising, speaking, eating and performing all daily activities. Noticeable improvement can happen within the first couple of days – in fact, it can be life changing.
I am excited to follow in my grandfather’s pioneering footsteps to bring this very powerful breathing method to the Midwest – teaching people how to “breathe better for better health.”
Trained by Patrick McKeown & Carol Baglia in May 2011 in Holland, Michigan

I never knew I was a mouth breather until I was introduced to the Buteyko Breathing Method! In fact, I thought a BIG breath of air was as healthy as eating a carrot. When I began to change my breathing to slow, low and only through my nose, I began to notice my body felt less stressed, my workouts improved, my morning coughs disappeared (I didn’t even know I had them until they were gone), and I had a more restful night’s sleep! All that from implementing the first step of Buteyko!
I brought Buteyko to Tippin Dental Group in Newton, connecting the effects of poor breathing habits to dental concerns of tooth decay, crooked teeth, and underdeveloped airway. I give personalized exercises to patients of all ages, including those with allergies, asthma, sleep issues, open mouth posture, and more. I also give practical advice to children and adults with no concerns in order to equip them with optimal breathing habits to have for the rest of their lives.
With over 11 years of dental assisting, an ABA and a Buteyko Instructor Certificate, I continue to lead the orthodontic department at Tippin Dental Group in clinical procedures, education and training. I conduct hands on training for dentists that attend Practical Orthodontics CE Course in our office, and have co-led a 2-day orthodontic assistant course in MN.
May I share the benefits of Buteyko with you? I teach individuals, families or groups on Zoom in 5 interactive lessons.
My name is Alyson Aberle. I have been a Certified Dental Assistant since 2011. I was born and raised in Oklahoma, now living in Kansas. I became interested in breathing and helping people learn to breathe correctly when I found Dr. Baba; his passion for helping people feel better and be healthier drove me to do the same.
Amazing things can happen when better breathing is a part of life! I love to work with people of all ages and all conditions.
As a Clinical Assistant at the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Kansas, it is exciting to be a part of changing lives, one breath at a time!
