Like most of TMD and DSM’s foremost thinkers, Dr. Mayoor Patel’s journey started in Zimbabwe, led to Arkansas, and eventually to finishing dental school at the age of 22. Oh, wait, that’s a crazy, outlandish story - but truth is stranger than fiction.
Don’t believe us? Then wait until you hear what Dr. Patel has to say about the ONE thing he’s observed in all his courses that separates successful Dental Sleep Practices from those that fail to take flight. I’m just going to give you a hint - the initials are “RDH.”
And there’s more folks. COVID, depression, and parafunction - Is there any overlap?
What effect does perimenopause have on sleep? I’m asking for a friend, by the way...
Do bite splints really make apnea worse? What about UARS and headaches?
Orofacial pain, TMD, and sleep - Is there really a connection?
Get your listen and learn on with The ZZZ Pack and Dr. Mayoor Patel, the dentist that is in the process of LITERALLY writing the textbook on Dental Sleep Medicine.
Since graduating from the University of Tennessee with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree, Dr. Mayoor Patel has received an extensive amount of credentials, which allow him to accurately and properly treat TMD, orofacial pain and sleep apnea in his dental office. A few highlights are:
In addition to his comprehensive continuing education, Dr. Mayoor Patel also lectures both locally and nationally to the dental and medical communities in the area of Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine. As an expert in these areas, Dr. Patel works with dentists to help them better understand the treatment of these conditions within their own dental practice.
