Meet Dr. Shab Krish – TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre Of North Texas



Dr. Shab Krish, Centre Director, is passionate about helping people and improving their quality of life. As a double specialist in both Periodontics and Endodontics, she founded Associates in Periodontics, Implantology and Endodontics and has been serving the Lewisville, Flower Mound, Denton, and surrounding North Texas communities for over 25 years.

Because she suffered from Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) pain herself, she started to study TMD, Sleep Disordered Breathing, and Craniofacial Pain. She now has about 10,000 Continuing Education credits in the field, including board certifications with the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain and the American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine.

After learning how to relieve her own pain and improve her sleep, Dr. Krish decided to devote all of her time to exclusively treating TMD, Craniofacial Pain, and sleep disorders by opening the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of North Texas.
