Your smile is a complex system of moving parts, and the temporomandibular joints (also known as the TMJ) are a significant aspect of it.

He has extensive training in neuromuscular dentistry from the prestigious Las Vegas Institute and works with surgeons throughout the Kenai Peninsula to ensure that patients receive the personalized care and long-term relief they need.
