We’re Always Striving to Improve
Our education didn’t stop after dental school. To the contrary, we love learning new things about dentistry, particularly if it’s something that can improve the health and well-being of our patients. From finding out about new materials and technologies to attending trainings on innovative treatments, our goal is to provide you with the most comfortable, safe, lasting, and effective dentistry possible. Why are we mentioning this now? We’re both working with the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Chicago to learn how to keep you pain-free and healthy. What, specifically, are we learning and how can you benefit?
Opening Airways One Patient at a Time
Dr. Higgins is currently participating in a mini-residency being taught by two of the most renowned medical professionals in the business. In this six-part Airway Oriented Orthodontics Course, Dr. Higgins is learning how to improve a patient’s ability to breathe through orthopedic and orthodontic movement. This will be particularly useful for our patients who suffer from sleep apnea. With what we learn, we’ll be able to help our patients have a good night’s sleep, providing the energy they need to function during the day. A bonus? These methods don’t involve wearing a CPAP machine!
There’s More to Come
While Dr. Higgins will be busy through September learning about how to use orthodontics to improve your airway, Dr. Holsinger will be continuing his education on craniofacial development and temporomandibular joint disorders. How will this benefit you? We’ll both have new ways to treat patients like you who suffer from disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea and TMD. No more restless nights, no more jaw pain, no more headaches — just optimal living.
There’s no need to wait for us to complete our courses before asking for help. We can still help you find relief from whatever ails you. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment. We can’t wait to see your smile!
