Get to Know Dr. Mitch Conditt

Education & Background
Dr. Conditt began his career as a general and restorative dentist graduating from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1985. After decades of helping people achieve strong teeth and rebuild their smiles, he started to notice something. His TMJ patients, who often experienced pain and stiffness in their jaws, often suffered from obstructive sleep apnea as well. This led him to do more research on the subject, and eventually, he discovered that about 50% of the people who have TMJ issues also have sleeping problems.
This forced him to do something, so he decided to pursue advanced training on how to solve these problems. Today, his practice is dedicated to helping the people of Fort Worth overcome sleep and pain issues often involving conservative therapy with the use of custom-made orthotics or splints.

Personal Interests & Hobbies
Dr. Conditt has definitely enjoyed retiring from general dental care and focusing solely on sleep dentistry. The work is less physically demanding, and after 35+ years in the field, he likes being on the more medical side of oral healthcare!
