Minimally Invasive Bioesthetic Dentistry

I am the only Bioesthetic Dentist in North Mississippi. I offer all new patients an initial complimentary consultation so you can better understand how Bioesthetics may help you on your journey to improved dental health and wellness. Bioesthetic Principles are a key part of my practice and as a patient-focused, health-centered Dentist, I continually strive to operate from a perspective of whole health.

I have been trained extensively in minimally invasive, holistic methods such as the VIVOS® System and MAGO (Maxillary Anterior Guided Orthotic) Splint Therapy. I am highly experienced in treating TMJ Disorder and Facial Pain, Sleep Breathing Disorders, Airway Health Issues, Myofunctional Therapy including Tongue-Tie & Lip-Tie Release, and other complex dental and oral health conditions.

TMJ Therapy & Facial Pain Relief

I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of complex TMJ patient cases involving degenerating chewing systems using Bioesthetic Principles, which focuses on complete dental restorative treatment for patients who have (TMJ) temporomandibular joint issues. I am a Level 4 Graduate having completed all 4 levels of training at The OBI Foundation for Bioesthetic Dentistry.

If you believe you have TMJ disorder, and you’re searching for relief from your pain and symptoms, I urge you to consider my advanced treatment option called “MAGO Therapy.” MAGO stands for Maxillary Anterior Guided Orthotic and is a non-surgical, non-invasive therapeutic approach, and is one of the most effective methods for providing long-term TMD relief.

Myofunctional Therapy & Tongue Tie

We are dedicated to screening for, increasing awareness of, and treating Airway and Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders in both adults and children. Myofunctional Therapy is an integrated part of what we do as we retrain the tongue muscles to function properly. If your child is suffering with ADD/ADHD, snoring, bed wetting, restless sleep, grinding teeth, or interrupted breathing, we are here to help.

We specialize in improving health by providing individualized therapy for mouth breathing, tongue thrust, tongue tie, sleep apnea and more. We are highly proficient in treating Tongue Tie & Lip Release therapy utilizing the LightScalpel® Laser method including ensuring pre and post Myofunctional Therapy to achieve optimal results.

Sleep Apnea Therapy with the VIVOS® System

As a Dentist since 2000, I’ve witnessed firsthand the significant distress that a Sleep Disorder such as Sleep Apnea can create and impact patients’ daily lives. Often, patients come to me complaining of symptoms like insomnia, dry mouth, difficulty breathing, headaches, and pain and tell me how they are suffering emotionally and physically. They describe the way these issues are affecting their ability to work, concentrate, sleep, and function throughout the day and, ultimately, live a normal life. I’m here today to tell you that you don’t have to suffer and live this way any longer. There is a solution!

My team and I have the skills, training, and knowledge necessary to treat complex Sleep Disorders using the VIVOS® system to help you obtain lasting relief.
