Renee Marks – State College, PA
Renee Marks’ career path as a dental hygienist, clinical educator, university faculty member and myofunctional therapist led her to become a certified Buteyko trainer. As a clinician for over 30 years, her experience is with airway centric general and periodontal dental practices.
While caring for patients she saw up close the end results for patients whose airway, sleep apnea and breathing issues led to bruxism, TMJ pain, tooth loss as well as medical complications
Incorrect swallowing and mouth breathing create cranio-facial changes which significantly impair both health and appearance. So much can be prevented or resolved with facilitating proper development and growth of the jaws and face. Because a primary goal of Oral Myofunctional Therapy (OMT)is to establish proper nasal breathing, Renee teaches Buteyko Breathing as a stand-alone or weaves the Buteyko exercises into her OMT therapy program.

She is uniquely qualified to treat children and adults who struggle with nasal breathing, oral rest posture and chewing and swallowing difficulties.
Kate received her Master’s in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Vermont.
