Dr. Alkhoury talks about how he got into Dentistry
After starting his practice in 1999 in a small community he got in to artistic skills as his main interest was Cosmetic Dentistry says Dr. Alkhoury from TMJ & Sleep Therapy Center in San Francisco. In his thirst to learn more abour Dentistry, Dr. Alkhoury has come across a connection between Craniofacial Pain and Sleep Disorder. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury uses his vast knowledge and experience in Dentistry and Pain Management in his well equipped offices with latest technologies to diagnose and monitor total Dental Care Treatment progress for maximum results.
I started as a dentist and opened the practice in 1999 in a really nice small community and I was doing really great.
My interest was cosmetic, as I got the artistic skills and I am always passionate about making people look good and have a great smile.
Then I went into big cases whilst I was doing full mouth reconstruction – there was something there that was missing. I got patients that would point out to certain areas in their mouth, when we look at the x-ray and conclude the examination, they don’t support the symptoms of the complaint.
I realize that it was something bigger than we were dealing with and I probably needed to investigate and learn more. So, I went to conferences and ran into nice thoughtful people and that opened the door for me to learn more about something called craniofacial pain, sleep disorder and the connection between both of them.
I decided to apply to craniofacial pain, sleep medicine, took courses and went back to school, learned more, took my fellowship, went through all the steps, exams, oral exams, hands-on then took the board exam written and oral. I got dual boards in sleep and pain.
It felt good being able to help pain patients it was something very psychologically rewarding because it is nice to help others.
Then I realized to complete that picture re-posture the jaw, align the jaw, the teeth I had to know more than I do although I had 3 boards already. So, I went back and did a residency program for 3-years and I got a diploma in clinical orthopedic. So now I have the full circle altogether, all the connections I have them at my disposal.
I now look at the patient from a different perspective. I look at the problem not from just a dental, a tooth, an oral point of view but more like a patient’s total. And that is what is missing in dental school where they teach about teeth and inside the mouth never outside of it.
I am now where I have the opportunity to provide the knowledge and the education to my patients so that they can make a better decision in choosing the right treatment.
