OBI Level 3 Bioesthetic Treatment Graduate

OBI Level 3 Bioesthetic Treatment Graduate

Hello, I’m Dr. Michael Gallagher, DDS and over the years I developed a special interest in helping patients who suffer from TMJ disorders, bite problems, muscle pain, facial pain, headache pain, and a jaw system that is simply dis-functional. After noticing a medical need for better TMJ treatment options in my community, for over 25 years I have dedicated my time and energy to studying, researching, and learning about this challenging condition.

In 2021, I began the journey to gain even more knowledge and expertise to further advance my skills in the “Diagnosis” and “Treatment” of complex patient cases involving degenerating chewing systems using Bioesthetic Principles and began training at the OBI (Orognathic Bioesthetics International) Foundation for Bioesthetic Dentistry, which focuses on complete dental restorative treatment for patients who have (TMJ) temporomandibular joint issues.

I wanted to be able to better help my patients and I wanted to be able to do more for them to bring health, wellness, and vitality back to their life. As a lifelong learner I believe strongly in continuing education. I encourage my patients to learn more, and I believe they expect me to do the same. I make it a priority to invest and attain advanced training and continuing education in my profession. I’m committed to increasing my knowledge and enhancing my skills in this specialized area of dentistry.

OBI Level 3 “Bioesthetic Treatment” Graduate

Today, I am very excited to announce that I have also completed and graduated from OBI’s Level 3 “Bioesthetic Treatment” curriculum, which focused on the Bioesthetic diagnostic process, conservative treatment options, development of an ideal treatment plan, and full completion of stabilization and restoration on an actual patient.

The three Tenets of Bioesthetic Treatment are (1) To stabilize the jaw in the jaw joint (2) Make sure the front teeth function properly to guide the jaw and clear the back teeth in movement and all contact when the jaw is seated in the joint (3) To restore the teeth to their biologic ideal anatomic form and function.
Over more than two decades, I’ve been able to successfully treat hundreds of patients who suffer from TMJ/TMD and witnessed first-hand the remarkable difference that the right treatment plan can make in someone’s life. Patients who once dealt with terrible jaw and face pain, on a daily basis, are able to find relief from their symptoms and experience a completely different quality of life.
I’m truly excited about the new opportunities from achieving the Level 3 training curriculum and look forward to treating more complex patient cases involving degenerating chewing systems and creating beautiful new teeth that function properly and look amazing.
