I made the decision over 7 years ago to begin learning more, advanced techniques and to upgrade my current skills and techniques. As I began exploring my options, I was invited to attend a local meeting as an introduction to The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. This introductory class got me more interested in learning more about LVI. I decided to head out to the desert and take the first class- Core I. As I was sitting in the first lecture on the first day, everything that was being said was making sense to me. I always had a difficult time with what we were taught in school about how the bite should fit and work, but finally, I was truly understanding more about this! As the day continued and the lectures began moving to the “whole-body” connection, more pieces began coming into place. By the end of the 2nd day, I knew this was the path that I wanted to follow and continue this journey. I began a 7 year journey that has taken my skills and my techniques to even higher levels than I ever thought!
Over the past 7 years, I, along with my team, have improved our existing skills and learned many new ones. I now have the skills to be able to treat the most difficult cases with confidence. With this new training, we are now able to treat the problems associated with
Temporo-Mandibular Joint Disorder (TMJD). These problems that we can now treat include: grinding of your teeth, clicking/popping of the jaws, headaches/migraines, sore neck/shoulders, vertigo/dizziness, tinnitus/ringing in the ears and tightness in the neck. We have also had good success treating tingling/numbness in the fingers, Fibromyalgia, Menier’s Disease, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome as well as others. All of these can be successfully treated by re-positioning the jaws to re-balance the muscles of the head and neck to relax and place in proper alignment the jaws. Before we ever do any permanent work to your teeth, we make sure we will be able to help you.
As you can see, my training has definitely expanded what we can offer! Not only can we create your perfect smile, but we can also relieve other issues that will help to improve your overall health! If you, or someone you know, could benefit from the treatments we offer, please feel free to contact us to schedule a consultation to see if we can help.
