Meet Dr. David Rawson
After his military career, he opened a General Family Practice in London, ON in 1979 and has maintained a keen interest in the dynamics of the face and dentition.
Since 1998, Dr. Rawson has traveled extensively throughout North America studying with the leaders in chronic head and neck pain, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD), Orthodontics and Sleep Disordered Breathing, which includes snoring, and sleep apnea.
In 2003, Dr. Rawson limited his practice to the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions. He incorporates a holistic approach to patient needs and uses a multi disciplinary team approach to enhance his treatments. These therapies include Osteopathy, Craniosacral Therapy, Massage Therapy, Nutritional and Lifestyle Counselling, and referral to the appropriate allied healthcare practitioners for maximum benefit to the patient. His treatments include no needles, surgery or drugs.
Dr. Rawson and his well-trained and dedicated staff see patients daily who suffer needlessly from headaches and sleep disorders, which can now be treated effectively using modern technology and new treatment concepts.
Dr. Rawson holds Diplomate status with American Board of Craniofacial Pain (AACP), the Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorders Disciplines (ACSDD) and Fellowships with AACP and the College of International Dentists (ICD). He is a past Instructor at his alma mater Dental School in London, ON and has lectured to medical and dental audiences throughout Canada and the United States.
He has given much of his time to leadership in his profession having served as Co-Founder and President of the Canadian Academy of Craniofacial Pain, Founder and existing President of The Canadian Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorders Disciplines (CACSDD), Board Member of the AACP and The International Association for Orthodontics (IAO). He founded and ran a local Study Club of like-minded health care practitioners, called SMILE, in London for many years. He keeps active in a number of organizations in his profession.
Dr. Rawson enjoys teaching his colleagues the newer concepts in TMJ and Sleep Apnea and regularly hosts them in his office in the treatment of his many patients.
