A Brief Introduction of Dr. Mickiewicz
Dr. Mickiewicz was recently featured in Sacramento Magazine’s November 2016 issue of “Faces of Sacramento” for his extensive work in TMJ therapy and dental sleep medicine. He is highly regarded in both the dental and medical communities and has an extensive network of partnerships throughout Northern California.
He received his undergraduate degree from St. Mary’s College in 1979 and later attended the University of Pacific for his doctorate in dental surgery (DDS). Over the course of his 30 years of practice, Dr. Mickiewicz has completed 50 or more hours of continuing education per year, which is twice the requirements set forth by the state of California.
Our offices are home to the Pacific Orofacial Pain Consultants, LLC, (POPC) where Dr. Mickiewicz consistently works to close the gap between medicine and dentistry. The goal of POPC is to educate patients to function in wellness, not illness, and to encourage patient education in all areas of health.
Dr. Mickiewicz has focused his training and education on several niche specialties within dentistry. Many of his professional memberships, such as the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain reflect these specialties. In addition to his extensive knowledge and experience in dentistry, he also offers:
AcceleDent® – AcceleDent® Aura is used as a complement to orthodontic treatments. When used in conjunction with traditional or clear braces, this tool increases teeth movement by 20 percent.
Invisalign® (Invisible Braces) – As a certified Invisalign® provider, Dr. Mickiewicz can provide patients with this comfortable, clear alignment system as an alternative to traditional braces.
Sleep Apnea – This medical condition is caused by a blockage or compromise of the airflow to the lungs. Dr. Mickiewicz can provide patients suffering from sleep apnea with a custom oral appliance to ease their symptoms and complications.
TMD Treatment – Dysfunctions of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can lead to headaches, joint popping, and sleep disorders. Treatment for TMD varies depending on individual patient symptoms and causes, but most patients find relief with a custom mouth guard.
