Dr. John Sousa graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University School of Dental Medicine, where he later taught as a professor of restorative dentistry. He is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, The American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, The American Academy of Pain Management, The American Equilibration Society, The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, The American Dental Association.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry believes successful cosmetic dentistry is dependent on a harmonious relationship between relaxed muscle function and stable jaw movements - a physiologically comfortable bite.
Dr. Sousa has completed extensive postgraduate training with Dr. Peter Dawson and Dr. Mark Piper at the Center for Advanced Dental Study, a recognized authority in research and the education of comprehensive dentistry. The advanced postgraduate training relates the patient's occlusion (bite) to the form and function of the masticatory (chewing) muscles and the temporomandibular(jaw) joints. It is this functioning system of teeth, muscles and joints that allow us to eat, speak and express our emotions.
Professionals who graduate from this advanced program become physicians of the masticatory system.
In addition to Dr. Sousa's family practice, he practices Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry augmented by the diagnosis & treatment of Craniofacial Pain (headaches) and TMJ Dysfunction. His treatment objective is to create magnificently beautiful smiles with relaxed muscles, a stable bite and stress-free jaw joints....."A Happy Smile!" …
