About

Bio

I am fortunate to have found a passionate purpose that is also my productive work. Many medical symptoms e.g Migraine, headaches, Fibromyalgia and TMJ symptoms e.g. jaw/face/ear/neck pain are actually correctable. My role is to give that option of "correction" to people relying on endless medications with their side effects only to "manage" their symptoms. While I enjoyed all aspects of dentistry after earning DDS at University of Missouri School of Dentistry, after 15 years of a busy and profitable practice I came to a Alfred Nobel moment. Have I have made a lasting difference in people's lives? One aspect of my practice - treating and resolving years of painful symptoms of Temporo Mandibular Dysfunction - was where I made the most difference. So I chose to dedicate the rest of my professional life treating TMD. Neuromuscular dentistry (NMD) principles made the most sense and gave the most predictable outcomes. So I have continued to learn, innovate and teach NMD techniques in the treatment and resolution of TMD symptoms. Common symptoms of TMD are migraines, headaches, neck pain, Fibromyalgia, ear pain, jaw pain, damaged teeth, TM joint locks, TMJ pain etc. It is rewarding to be able to help people who were close to losing hope of ever being pain free regaining their lives.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
