Dr. Shab Krish is passionate about helping people improve their quality of life. She is a double specialist in both periodontics and endodontics, and founder of Associates in Periodontics, Implantology & Endodontics, serving the Lewisville, Flower Mound, Denton, and surrounding North Texas communities for over 25 years. After suffering from temporomandibular disorder (TMD) pain herself, she began to study TMD, craniofacial pain, and sleep-disordered breathing, ultimately achieving board certifications with the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain and the American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine. After learning how to relieve her own pain and improve her sleep, Dr. Krish decided to devote all of her time to exclusively treating TMD, craniofacial pain, and sleep disorders by opening the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of North Texas.

Dr. Krish attended the Marquette University Dental School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and went on to receive her Masters of Science in Periodontics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. She continued specialized training at the following institutions:

  • Endodontic training, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
  • Surgical training from Misch International Implant Institute in Implantology and Advanced Bone Grafting
  • TMJ training through the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, Dental Sleep Medicine at the University of California Los Angeles
  • Steve Olmos TMJ and Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-Residencies
