Doris M Waite, RDH
Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist
Registered Buteyko Breathing Educator
The Tongue and Lung Lady
Doris is extremely knowledgeable in all areas relating to breathing and proper tongue function. We have benefitted from her knowledge at all stages of this process: from the intake interview, to the myofunctional exercises, to her presence at the frenectomy and help with recovery afterwards, to the Buteyko breathing exercises. I feel empowered by the knowledge she shares with us, to be able to take action towards improving our health.
She is always very encouraging with my 8 year old daughter, and my daughter really likes meeting with her. Even when I feel we have hit a wall with a particular exercise and like there won’t be a way around it, Doris always has surprising and effective ideas to make them work and to get the right muscles working.
Myofunctional therapy is definitely hard work and we have found it very challenging, but Doris has been great at helping us to keep it up. Having our appointments remotely has been surprisingly effective and she is always easy to reach if we have any questions. She is professional, well-organized and always pleasant. I would definitely recommend her to anyone curious about the role of the tongue relating to proper breathing, tooth alignment and overall health.

I sought help from Doris to help relieve the anxiety that has plagued me for years. After five sessions, I have had a reduction in that anxiety, as well as the ability to reduce symptoms when they occur.
I used to wake up every morning feeling tired, sluggish and thick headed and feel that way all day long. I would fall asleep on the couch in the evening while trying to watch a movie. In less than three weeks of breathing correctly, I’d wake up after a solid night’s sleep feeling totally refreshed. My energy levels have increased so much that even my husband has commented on the difference he sees in me. I do feel like a different person and I even get to see the end of the movie now.
For the past 7 years, I have been unable to breathe through my nose. Doris gave me some exercises and although it took a few weeks, I can now breathe through my nose all the time! I am sleeping better and feel more rested when I wake up .
I was having problems with fatigue and feeling exhausted at the end of a normal day.
I have so much more energy now and go to bed tired but not exhausted. Thanks Doris for improving my life. At 80 years of age, I didn’t think it was possible to feel this well again!
My daughter has sucked her thumb since the day she was born. Trying to get her to stop sucking her thumb has been a frustrating experience until we met Doris. Her program was easy to do and it worked. In a month, my daughter no longer ever sucks her thumb. She enjoyed the process and feels really good about what she has accomplished. In a month, her teeth have visibly started to straighten back to what they should be. I would 100% recommend Doris Waite to anyone who is wanting to help their child to stop sucking their thumb.
