Expert in General Dentistry and TMJ Disorder
Expert ID: 736087 California, USA
Owned and operated a private dental practice in Los Angeles for 11 years. Worked as an associate dentist and pro temp before and after owning and selling my first practice. During that time I had extensive experience in all phases of general dentistry.
Throughout my career, I have had a special interest in orofacial pain due to my own experience with cluster headaches and my wife's TMJ disorder. I have studied the subject via USC Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry Orofacial Pain Center's continuing education for dentists. My wife and I co-authored the book "Your Roadmap to TMJ Health, How to Navigate Your Way through TMJ Disorder with a Comprehensive Approach to Healing."
After practicing in Southern and Central California as both a practice owner and associate, I relocated to the Central Coast. My private practice schedule currently allows me to be open to other opportunities in consulting, dental insurance claims review, and expert witness or legal/forensic consulting.
