Elevating Patient Care: Dr. Steven Olmos Shares Insights on TMD and Sleep Therapy at our South Shore Centre
Alison Freeman, DMD
Last fall, we established the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the South Shore as part of our comprehensive healthcare approach for our patients. Located within our new, state-of-the-art facility in Abington alongside Beyond Dental Health, the Centre is committed to delivering exceptional care for individuals coping with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), craniofacial pain and sleep-related issues. Having studied sleep therapy for several years, I have been truly fortunate to learn from my esteemed mentor, Dr. Steven Olmos, an international authority in TMD, craniofacial pain and sleep therapy. This week, we were honored to host Dr. Olmos and his team from San Diego and Canada, who generously shared their invaluable expertise and insights with us.
Dr. Olmos is the visionary founder of TMJ & Sleep Therapy International, a global network of healthcare professionals dedicated to diagnosing and treating TMD and sleep disorders. With over four decades of experience and research in the field, Dr. Olmos has pioneered innovative and effective treatment protocols to address these complex health challenges. His extensive expertise has significantly influenced the vision and direction of TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre International, including our South Shore location.
During his visit, Dr. Olmos presented the most recent research findings and advancements in TMD and sleep therapy to our entire team. He also offered priceless guidance on refining our approach to care by incorporating the most effective diagnostic and treatment methods. Dr. Olmos’ knowledge and insights have truly inspired our team to pursue excellence in patient care and to remain committed to continuous learning and growth in this specialized area.
Dr. Olmos and his team also conducted hands-on training with several patients from our practice, including three team members and my 11-year-old daughter, who has battled sinus infections, neck pain and sleep difficulties due to airway limitations. This hands-on experience has further enhanced our team’s skills and understanding of the challenges faced by our patients.
At the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the South Shore, our primary objective is to enhance the quality of life for our patients by addressing their TMD and sleep-related concerns. We frequently encounter patients suffering from jaw and craniofacial pain, orthopedic dysfunction, sleep disturbances, headaches, and other ailments, often struggling to find providers who can help them identify the root cause and find the relief they need. By integrating Dr. Olmos’ teachings and methodologies into our practice, we have already made a meaningful difference in many lives. Our treatment approach focuses on non-invasive, non-surgical methods, aiming to correct issues at their source rather than merely addressing symptoms.
We are profoundly grateful for the opportunity to learn from Dr. Steven Olmos and for his ongoing mentorship. The TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the South Shore is poised to become a leading facility in the region, offering exceptional care to patients coping with TMD, craniofacial pain and sleep disorders. We eagerly anticipate working collaboratively as a team to improve our patients’ lives and to continue learning from the foremost experts in the field.
