Josie: Assistant
Josie has been a member of our team since January 2018 and is currently our Assistant Team Leader. Josie has worked closely with Dr. Gunnerson the last few years in training on Sleep Apnea treatment, TMJ Disorder Therapy and Craniofacial Pain Relief. “I enjoy seeing the effect these treatments have in people’s lives. Taking someone from a level 10 migraine to maybe a 2 or 3 in a matter of minutes is something I haven’t seen at any other office.”
Karin: Assistant
Karin joined our team of assistants in March 2019. Karin previously worked as a CNA but wanted something in the healthcare field with more reasonable hours so she could spend more time home with her family. She is passionate about Sleep Apnea Treatment and helping patients get the restful sleep they deserve.
Braeden: Assistant
Braeden is the newest addition to our clinical team. He is very passionate about health and fitness. Braeden’s current goals are to grow his oral health knowledge and work towards becoming a dental hygienist. His ‘go getter’ attitude and bright energy is a welcome addition to our office and we are happy to have him!
Kadee: Assistant
Kadee has been a member of our clinical team since September 2020. She works primarily alongside Josie and Dr. Gunnerson in treating TMJ & Craniofacial Pain. Kadee is passionate about working with the new technology in our office. “I love the Cold Laser. As someone who has struggled with Chronic Migraines all my life, tried treatments such as botox, chiropractics, etc. and then to have something so simple make such an enormous difference for me… worth it, 100%.”
Mindy: Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist
Mindy has been a part of our team since we opened in 1996. She started her career as a dental hygienist and after discovering her passion for Myofunctional Therapy, is now our exclusive Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist for Payson, Utah. This therapy is not new, but has just recently made its way to the United States. This treatment has been used in European countries for many years. The purpose of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy is to retrain facial muscles that may have developed incorrectly due to childhood issues such as; thumbsucking, tongue and lip ties, pacifiers, and more. Receiving Myofunctional Therapy as a child can reduce or eliminate the need for braces, CPAP machines, and more later in life.
