SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST
Dr. Dahan is a general dentist with a limited practice in TMJ & Sleep Apnea Management. Dr. Dahan was raised in London, Ontario and moved to the Ottawa region after high school. He graduated from Carleton University with a degree in Science and went on to complete a Dental degree at McGill University in 2005. He practiced general dentistry in Ottawa for five years while simultaneously furthering his education with a Masters in Dental Science degree.
His interest in facial pain management and sleep dentistry lead him to leave his dental practice and pursue a clinical fellowship in orofacial pain at the world-renowned Massachusetts General Hospital located in Boston. While there, he was a part-time clinical instructor at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Following graduation, he moved back to Ottawa to start his private practice and has been awarded a clinical position at the Montreal General Hospital, where his focus is geared to the treatment of facial pain management.
He currently teaches part-time at McGill University and the Montreal General Hospital as a clinical instructor. Dr. Dahan has published three scientific papers supporting his PhD designation and has lectured at Harvard, Tufts and McGill Universities.
