Dr. Azouz remains committed to his education, and he regularly seeks out the latest courses in advanced dental services, products, and treatments.
Dr. Azouz had a personal friend who was also a dentist who passed away from trouble with sleep apnea.This led Dr. Azouz to in-depth studies on the subject. He now regularly treats patients with sleep apnea, as well as those with TMJ disorder. The most rewarding aspects of his practice involve helping patients overcome TMJ pain and sleep apnea, as well as creating beautiful smiles. He also enjoys providing children with positive experiences, so they will value oral hygiene and healthy smiles throughout their adult lives.
Postgraduate training has always been of great importance to Dr. Azouz, and he regularly takes courses in dental implants and orthodontics (braces/invisible braces), in addition to the ones mentioned above. His professional memberships include the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the Sacramento District Dental Society.
