Dr Saruna returned to Windsor where for over 34 years he has built his practice. Although trained and experienced in various philosophies of thought in regard to the management of the jaw joint(TMJ) pain, it was while attending The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies in 1998 where Dr Saruna was introduced to Neuromuscular Dentistry ” I was attending classes on cosmetic dentistry at the time, and I was having problems with my own jaw joint. I was told things like the pain that I felt was a psychological problem or I’d have to learn to live with it. When my jaw joint was healed at the Las Vegas Institute using neuromuscular principals, I was convinced!” Dr. Saruna is now a graduate of The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and a committed practitioner in neuromuscular concepts of dental care. He has experienced tremendous success with patients experiencing head, neck and facial pain through the use of multidisciplinary networking and state-of-the-art computerized technology. Dr Saruna ‘s philosophy is a conservative non surgical and preventive approach for long term comfort and overall health.
Dr. Saruna had the opportunity to train with Dental Lasers and was amazed at the effects on healing and regrowth of the gums and jaw bone. He has been using lasers since 2004 and holds Mastership Certification from the World Clinical Laser Institute.
Dr. Saruna is of the belief that education is only the beginning. ” Everyone knows that scientific knowledge is expanding at a fantastic rate. A clinician must have a willingness to adapt and to incorporate these paradigm shifts, bringing new techniques and technologies into daily practice. Add to this, a dedication to improving people’s dental health and you will bring functional health and beauty to your patients.”
