I'm Khrisi Valdez
I am Sandra Coulson's assistant orofacial myologist. I am also assisting Sandra with the Introductory and Advanced courses at The Coulson Institute. I was born and raised in Denver. I've worked in the dental field for over two decades. My husband and I are parents to a seven-year-old daughter who keeps us quite busy.
My two favorite activities are reading/listening to books and spending time with family. My family and I enjoy listening to music and traveling to new and exciting locations.
Sandra Coulson is someone I've known for over a decade and I've always been fascinated by her work. Now, I not only have the opportunity to observe and learn from the best Orofacial Myologist, but I also get to see the results of my work with my patients.
While I've known Sandra I have witnessed the life-changing effects she has had on her patients. I'm extremely excited to see my own results with my patients. I've learned the value of proper tongue posture and how it affects your overall health over the last seven years, beginning with infancy. I now get to see the lighter side of therapy and continue to educate patients.
"I was skeptical about Orofacial Myologist therapy at first, but Khrisi Valdez proved me wrong. After just a few sessions, I saw significant improvement in my oral and facial muscle function. Khrisi is a true professional and an expert in her field. I highly recommend her and the team to anyone looking to improve their oral health and function."
