Houston, Texas (PRWEB) June 25, 2014

MedCenter TMJ is expanding their team this July with the addition of Dr. Nathan J. Pettit, DMD, MSD. Dr. Pettit has been studying various dental specialties over the past seven years including his time in the Prosthodontic Residency Program at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston. During his residency there he had the opportunity to meet and study under Dr. Ronald Auvenshine.

After earning his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree, Dr. Pettit focused his training on implant and reconstructive dentistry as well as oral oncology. His work with veterans afforded him the opportunity to also study craniomandibular disorders, which quickly became his passion in the dental field. Dr. Pettits dedication and work was recognized with an offer to head the VA Prosthodontic Resident Myofascial Pain Clinic under the direction of Dr. Auvenshine.

Dr. Pettits passion and focus was immediately apparent, says Dr. Auvenshine. I greatly enjoyed mentoring him at the VA Prosthodontic Resident Myofascial Pain Clinic and working together on his post-graduate research. Im confident he is going to be a great asset at MedCenter TMJ.

Dr. Pettits achievements include receiving a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine, graduating from the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain Mini-Residency program and being awarded a Master of Science in Dentistry from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Dentistry.

At MedCenter TMJ Dr. Pettit will continue his work on the treatment of craniomandibular disorders and temporomandibular dysfunction. His goal is to continue enhancing his clinical and diagnostic skills under the mentorship of Dr. Auvenshine while improving the health of patients in and around the Houston area.
