Exploring Life & Business with Melissa Rosello of Breathing Wellness

Today we’d like to introduce you to Melissa Rosello,

Hi Dr. Rosello, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
We, Dr. Melissa Rosello and Dr. Matthew Yantorni are general dentists with great enthusiasm for dentistry and sincere care and concern for our patients’ health. We believe that our ability to provide dental care is a gift, and we are truly blessed to be able to make the Central Florida community smile each and every day. Believing that the systems of the body are “all connected,” Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine and airway prosthodontics have become an integral and passionate part of our dental practices. We are dedicated to sharing our knowledge of the importance of BREATHING WELLNESS with all our patients and the ENTIRE Central Florida community. As the founders of Breathing Wellness, our purpose is to create awareness and educate people on the potentially life-altering effects of poor breathing and to encourage and direct them to the help they need.

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Approximately 80% of Americans have underdeveloped jawbones. That means 264 million people in the United States are at an increased risk for breathing problems and the health conditions associated with them and the majority DON’T KNOW IT! 25% of Children and adults in the United States have Obstructive Sleep Apnea, but 80% of them are undiagnosed and do not even know they suffer from this deadly condition. 90% of Americans suffer from one of the many common health concerns that are linked to sleep-disordered breathing, including Cardiovascular Disease, ADD/ADHD, Bedwetting or Frequent Urination, Mouth Breathing, Snoring, Restless Sleep, Delayed/Stunted Growth, Nightmares, Low IQ, Asthma, Chronic Allergies, Crowded/Crooked Teeth, Dark Circles Under the Eyes, Swollen Adenoids/Tonsils, Daytime Drowsiness, Depression, Anxiety, Fibromyalgia, Obesity, Hypertension, Aggressive Behavior, Bruxism (Teeth Grinding), Alzheimer’s, Opioid Addiction, Diabetes, Decreased Immunity, Dementia, Cancer, Premature Death, Brain Fog, Headaches, Chronic Fatigue, and TMJ Pain and Dysfunction. Our biggest challenge has been educating the community that these conditions, while prevalent, are NOT NORMAL and certainly not just something you have to live with. We have nonsurgical, noninvasive, and nonpharmaceutical options for treatment to provide a better quality of life!

As you know, we’re big fans of Breathing Wellness. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about the brand?
At Breathing Wellness, it is our goal to educate the community, make the connection between common everyday afflictions that have a hidden or unknown cause, and to provide multiple treatment options to increase our patient’s quality of life. Approximately 80% of Americans have underdeveloped jawbones. That means 264 million people in the United States are at an increased risk for breathing problems and the health conditions associated with them and the majority DON’T KNOW IT! Alarmed by this fact, We strive to be an excellent educational resource and treatment facility for sleep-disordered breathing and dental sleep medicine, not only for the community but for local physicians as well. We offer free educational seminars/webinars for the community and in our spare time meet with local medical providers to educate them on dental sleep medicine, to form interdisciplinary relationships, and provide dental solutions for medical conditions. We have advanced training in the use of an innovative appliance therapy that can non-surgically and non-invasively grow and develop the upper and lower jawbones in both children and adults to improve the airway, increase the quality of sleep and offer relief from the previously mentioned symptoms. These appliances enhance the airway of patients, allowing them to get more oxygen-rich air to their lungs. Once distributed, the body can then function “on all cylinders.” We are proud to be the FIRST to offer this new treatment in Central Florida. We are also among the few dentists in Central Florida who are trained in the revolutionary NIGHTLASE procedure, which also treats the prevalent conditions of snoring and sleep apnea and under-diagnosed life-threatening condition, with a non-cutting soft tissue laser. We are continuously striving to remain up-to-date on the latest in dental science advancements and the newest available treatments and procedures. Patient care is of utmost importance to us, which is why we are committed to being a one stop shop for all our patient’s dental and breathing needs. Our offices offer the full array of dental treatments, have the latest in digital diagnostic tools, laser dentistry, take-home sleep studies, myofunctional therapy, sleep-disordered breathing screening, and free virtual or in-person consultations. We, at Breathing Wellness, understand the importance of proper breathing, which is why we say: Breathe Better, Sleep Better, Live Better!

The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
Proper breathing is essential to healthy living, and due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, most people are actually thinking about their breathing, something we don’t typically think about! Unfortunately, most people are still unaware of how they are breathing when they are sleeping, a critical time in each and every day for the natural repair of damage that was done during the day to our bodies. Sleep is important to healthy living and proper immunological response to all foreign threats to our body, including the COVID-19 virus. According to the CDC, greater than 99% of people who tested positive for the COVID-19 virus survive. Additionally, the CDC has stated that those who are at most risks for a poor outcome when battling COVID-19 are typically suffering from comorbidities such as heart conditions (like heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies, hypertension or high blood pressure), cerebrovascular disease (affects blood vessels and blood supply to the brain), asthma, immunocompromise, neurologic conditions (such as dementia), obesity, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, all comorbidities of those typically suffering from sleep and breathing disorders. By treating jaw underdevelopment, the root cause of most sleep and breathing disorders, we can reduce the comorbidities seen in most Americans and make our communities healthier and better able to naturally fight colds, flus and other viruses including COVID-19!
