Meet David Rawson, 

Dr. David E. Rawson is a 1974 graduate of Dentistry from the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada. Upon graduation, he spent five years as a Dental Officer in the Canadian Armed Forces serving in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Kingston, Ontario.

He opened a general practice in London in 1979 and soon developed a keen interest in the dynamics of the oral facial complex and maturing dentition. He uses Orthodontics to treat unfavourable conditions early in children.

Since 1998 Dr. Rawson has traveled extensively throughout North America to study with the leaders in chronic head and neck pain, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD), orthodontics and sleep disordered breathing including snoring and sleep apnea.

In 2003 Dr. Rawson opened the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of London, Ontario based on the model created by Dr. Steven Olmos of San Diego, California. The Centre is solely dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions. He incorporates a holistic approach and uses a multidisciplinary team to enhance treatment success. Therapies include craniosacral therapy, massage therapy, nutritional analysis and referrals to appropriate medical facilities where indicated. Dr. Rawson and his well-trained and dedicated staff see patients daily who suffer needlessly from headaches and sleep disorders. They are pleased that these conditions can now be treated effectively using modern technology and new treatment concepts.

Dr. Rawson is committed to educating his colleagues. He has been an adjunct clinical professor for over 16 years at his alma mater, the School of Dentistry, UWO. He is a founding member of the Canadian Chapter of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP) and served as its President from 2009 to 2011. Dr. Rawson serves on the Board of the AACP and is the Founder and President of the S.M.I.L.E., an Orthopedic Study Club for his colleagues in SW Ontario. He has lectured to various dental study groups and stays active and maintains a keen interest in a number of organizations in his profession.
Dr. Rawson is a Diplomate of the American Board of Craniofacial Pain, a Fellow of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain and a Fellow of the International College of Dentists.

Dr. Rawson is a member of the Canadian Dental Association (CDA), International Association for Orthodontics (IAO), American Association for Functional Orthodontics (AAFO), Ontario Dental Association (ODA), London & District Dental Society (LDDS), and the London Academy of Dental Studies (LADS). He has three sons and enjoys photography and playing squash. He also has his pilot’s license and enjoys flying.
