Dr. Brad Sainsbury, D.D.S, M.S.

Fellow American Academy of Orofacial Pain.
Diplomate American Board of Orofacial Pain.

Dr. Sainsbury has been practicing general dentistry for the last 15 years. Throughout his professional years as a dentist, he encountered patients with symptoms related to temporomandibular joint dysfunctions (TMDs) and was led to inquire more about these issues including primary headaches, nerve pain, and sleep related breathing disorders. Dr. Sainsbury completed his residency program at the University of Southern California where he obtained a master’s degree in orofacial pain and oral medicine.

Here at The TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre, he is able to address the issues people face with a non-surgical, therapeutic approach and identify the root causes of tmd/tmj & sleep related issues. Outside of work, Dr. Sainsbury enjoys spending time with his family and friends which includes attending collegiate sporting events (cheering on his alma mater, the University of Washington Huskies – Go Dawgs!), Padres games, hiking, traveling, church, and enjoying all that life has to offer. He believes it is important to practice mindfulness and attends meditation retreats as often as he can. Dr. Sainsbury is board certified in orofacial pain and has garnered many awards and recognitions throughout his life – but the most important ones are the “thank-you’s” from his patients.

Dr. Steven Olmos is Proud to Pass the Baton!

They are amazing! They not only treated my jaw pain they also determined I had sleep apnea and sleep issues. I had tried many treatments in the past and they are the only ones that have cured my jaw pain, snoring and migraines.
