    Dr. Damian Teo

    TMD & Sleep Dentist

    Bachelor of Health Science (Dentistry) – Latrobe University
    Masters of Dentistry – Latrobe University
    Post Graduate Diploma Dental Sleep Medicine – University of Western Australia

    Dr Damian Teo is a holistic dentist who has focused his practice to TMD, Bruxism and Dental Sleep Medicine. Since graduating from dentistry at Latrobe University in 2012, Damian dived straight into a TMD and Dental Sleep Medicine clinic in Melbourne.

    Damian is passionate about looking “beyond the mouth” and treating the body as a whole. He believes dentists play an important role in being able to recognise airway/breathing issues, sleeping problems, and craniofacial pain (such as headaches, neck pain, and TMD). Damian first gained deeper knowledge and understanding of TMD, craniofacial pain, sleep medicine, and airways by completing the TMD & Sleep mini residency program by Dr. Steven Olmos in 2013.

    This led to Damian working in Darwin’s first official TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre in 2014, where he then restricted his practice to treating patients for snoring, sleep apnea, bruxism and TMD. He pursued further education in the field of sleep medicine and achieved his Post Graduate Diploma in Dental Sleep Medicine with the University of Western Australia in 2016.

    Over the years, Damian completed various mini-residency programs covering TMD, craniofacial pain, sleep medicine, orofacial myology and orthodontics with Dr Derek Mahony, Dr Jeffrey Okeson, Dr Tony Ancell, Dr Jamison Spencer, and Dr Steve Gallela.

    Knowing the value in multidisciplinary treatment, Damian has also completed courses in biochemistry, nutrition, exercise biomechanics, neuro kinetic therapy, Buteyko breathing, mental health and well-being. He also works closely with many different health practitioners ranging from physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, acupuncturists, speech pathologists, sleep respiratory physicians, ENTs, oral surgeons and even personal trainers.

    Damian’s passion for TMD and Sleep medicine led to the founding of his own specialised TMD and Sleep clinics: Melbourne Dental Sleep Clinic, consulting with TMJ physiotherapists in the Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre and Sleep Respiratory Physicians in Lung and Sleep Victoria.
