Dr. Priya Mistry graduated with Honors from University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in 2007 and has been helping her patients smile with confidence since then. During this time, she has enjoyed working with a large variety of people – different cultures, ages and various social backgrounds. Through it all, Dr. Mistry has maintained her goal in dentistry: to provide excellent dental care in a compassionate and comfortable setting. More recently, Dr. Mistry has been focusing on taking care of patients with TMJ/TMD. After seeing how debilitating it can be for people to live in chronic pain, Dr. Mistry has been attending various CE courses and seminars in order to provide more comprehensive care for her patients. She has been fortunate to have been trained for the past two years by TMJ expert, Dr. Arthur L. Parker – who has devoted his life’s work to taking care of patients with TMJ problems.
Dr. Mistry has recently started a YouTube channel to increase awareness amongst patients and providers as to what TMJ conditions are, how to treat them and how they relate to other parts of the body. In her spare time, Dr. Mistry enjoys spending time with her husband and her two lovely children. She also likes to cook, read, hike and exercise.
