I attended the University of Michigan undergrad and then completed my Dental Degree(DDS) there in 1980. I received the Fellowship Award from the Academy of General Dentistry in 1989. This recognizes extended training in all aspects of dentistry(over 550 hours by 1987) and passing the board exam.
In addition to general dentistry, I have been working for the past 20 years with patients who have airway and breathing dysfunctions. For children there are techniques to guide growth and development of the face and jaw for the best function lifetime function. In adults, or children who are past the optimum growth phases, there are other processes that improve the relationship of the jaws and tongue space to restore health through better breathing.
