Aris has completed the seven core courses in the Academy’s extensive continuing education courses, and is now a Scholar of The Dawson Academy. By taking these courses, Dr. Aris is making a commitment to help his patients achieve long-term optimal oral health.

The Dawson Academy is where dentists come to gain a better understanding of not only teeth, but also the muscles and systems that control them. The Dawson Academy teaches the essential principles and skills for complete care with primary concentrations in dental occlusion, the temporomandibular joints and comprehensive esthetic restorative dentistry. The faculty is comprised of over 20 practicing dentists from around the world.

A Dawson Scholar is trained in an analysis of bite problems with a thorough understanding of dental occlusion and the functions of the masticatory system. The cornerstone of The Dawson Academy philosophy is a comprehensive understanding of how the TM joint, muscles, proprioceptive input, lower anterior teeth, upper anterior teeth, lower posterior teeth and upper posterior teeth are designed to function in harmony with one another.

A believer in life-long learning, Dr. Aris has made an extraordinary commitment to education completing over 1,000 hours of dental continuing education. “Preventative care is my first priority,” stresses Dr. Aris, “because, dental health is an integral part of a person’s overall health.” Dr. Aris is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, a Fellow with the Academy of General Dentistry, and a 2014 Scholar of The Dawson Academy.

We at The Dawson Academy congratulate Dr. Aris on completing our courses and we wish him continued success.
