“I feel that dental sleep medicine and treating TMD go hand-in-hand, and knowledge of one allows for better treatment of the other. I also have a passion for implantology and surgery. I place and restore implants using the latest technology including, 3D-imaging, oral scanners, 3-D printing and PRP/PRF.”
