Dr Damian Teo is a holistic dentist based in Melbourne, Australia. Damian has a focused interest in snoring, sleep disorders, teeth grinding and TMJ disorders. In his dentistry, Damian is passionate about looking “beyond the mouth” and treating the body as a whole. He believes dentists play an important role in being able to recognise airway/breathing issues, sleeping problems, and craniofacial pain (such as headaches, neck pain, and TMJ disorders). This led him to undergo extensive postgraduate training with world renowned specialists in the field of sleep medicine and TMJ disorders.

Damian is a member of the Australasian Sleep Association (ASA), and has a Post Graduate Diploma in Dental Sleep Medicine with the University of Western Australia.

As someone who enjoys constantly learning and sharing his findings, Damian started the Elite Sleep Study Club with the intention of making information about Sleep Medicine accessible for students of all skill levels
