Meet Dr. Jeffrey Dolgos

Dr. Jeffrey Dolgos

I grew up in Avon, NY, a small town just south of Rochester. Growing up in a small town helped me to recognize the value of integrity at a young age. You couldn’t step out of line for very long because everyone in town knew everyone else’s business. I attended St. John Fisher College, where I studied English and Chemistry. My dental school training is what originally brought me to Buffalo, where I studied for four years at the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine.

A Skilled Dentist Committed to Continuing Education

Over the years I have engaged in an ongoing search for knowledge, and for the truth. I spent many hours studying advanced dental techniques at the prestigious Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida. My educational pursuits have not been limited to the dental field. I have studied physical therapy, anatomy, nutrition, cranioscaral therapy, homeopathy, kinesiology, psychology, sociology, and human behavior.

I became a Reiki Master a few years ago, and I believe strongly that most, if not all, disease begins in the subtle energy field. As my pursuits lead me further and further into the study of consciousness and its influences on the nervous system, I will continue to incorporate a wide variety of techniques and treatment modalities into my diagnostic efforts and therapeutic protocols.

I hope that I can help you in your search for knowledge and in your pursuit of wellness, and should you decide to visit my office for a consultation, I very much look forward to meeting you!

It is our mission at Buffalo TMJ to help patients overcome jaw pain and dysfunction without the need for surgery and without extensive restorative dentistry.

The History of Buffalo TMJ

Back in 1989, a local dentist by the name of Dr. Robert Kull made the bold decision to exclusively focus his dental practice on the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ Dysfunction.  He called it Western New York TMD, and it became well-known in this area as the place to go if you had a jaw problem. Dr. Kull took an approach to this problem that was very different from that which is taught in conventional dental education.  His approach placed attention on the form and function of the joint structures themselves, rather than on how the teeth fit together.

Dr. Kull concentrated his practice exclusively to the treatment of TMJ dysfunction and facial pain from about 1989 until his retirement in 2011, at which time he passed the baton to me. During his 20+ years of treating TMJ Dysfunction and facial pain, Dr. Kull developed a protocol which was predictable and effective for a high percentage of patients, a unique quality in the field of TMJ Dysfunction. Before he left the profession, he allowed me to see how he evaluated and treated his patients. I have continued to refine and develop this protocol in a continual effort to meet the needs of each individual patient who comes to me for help.

TMJ Rehab A Step-by-Step Approach

We take a conservative, functional, and orthopedic approach to treatment.  It is our mission to help our patients understand and then overcome the uncomfortable, sometimes painful symptoms that can arise due to malfunctioning jaw joints and muscles.  Our primary objectives are to protect the joint structures from being overloaded, to de-program the neurological reflexes that impair proper jaw function, and to reprogram the neuro-muscular patterns that have led to dysfunction and pain.

At my office, you will be led through a 12-week TMJ Rehab program which incorporates techniques and exercises I’ve learned and adapted through the years.  It combines elements of physical therapy, kinesiology, yoga, meditation, dietary modification, and vibrational healing into one cohesive program.
