Hi and welcome to OMTherapy! I am Lisa Jack and I am a board certified orofacial myofunctional therapist and registered dental hygienist for over 20 years. I graduated from Wichita State University with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. After years in private practice, teaching dental hygiene students, and educating special needs caregivers about oral health, I realized the impact myofunctional disorders and dysfunctional breathing have on a person. I am proud to be Wichita’s first independent myofunctional therapist. I have taken numerous courses and trainings over the years, including becoming a Certified Orofacial Myologist (COM®) through the International Association of Orofacial Myology (IAOM). In addition, I am a 200-hour certified yoga instructor, a certified MyoMunchee practitioner, and hold certification in the Buteyko Breathing Method. It is through my extensive experience and continued education that I feel confident in helping restore oral, facial, and TMJ muscle function, and healthier breathing patterns.
Specializing in myofunctional therapy often requires working with other dental and health professionals who understand the impact orofacial dysfunction can have on the whole body. The connection of our oral health and overall health couldn’t be more important. I truly enjoy working one on one with children and adults, taking time to listen to their needs, and reaching therapy goals together for long-term results.
