Meet Dr. Reid

Donald N. Reid, DDS, FICOI

Clinician, Speaker, Author

Drawing from 40 years of clinical experience, and practicing in two small town locations, Dr. Don Reid experiences clinical and lifestyle success beyond what were once in his wildest imagination.

Don is the co-creator of BiteFX software animations which depict the destructive causes, effects, solutions and treatments caused by malocclusions or temporal mandibular disorders. The Dawson Academy, Spear Education, as well as universities and private institutions in over forty countries, utilize Dr. Reid’s software to enhance dentist comprehension of the human masticatory system.

Don is a founding father of the Academy of Microscope Dentistry, founded in 2002. He is a graduate of the Misch International Implant Institute, Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Studies and the Piper TMJ Institute. Don is a fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantology. He was an associate/dental consultant for Charles Sorenson Association helping dentists develop practice philosophy, mission and staff selection protocols.

Don lectures internationally on the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of bite disorders, facially generated treatment planning and the Health-Centered Volitional practice. He teaches hands-on programs for treating muscle related jaw problems and understands the role emotional intelligence plays in practice success. He advises colleagues with clinical dilemmas and is published in leading dental journals and magazines.

He attended UCLA (BS Chemistry 1974) and Temple University (DDS 1978). He is an enlisted Vietnam veteran (USMC 1966-1970) and served three years in a general practice residency as a Lt. Cdr. with the Navy Dental Corps (1978-1981).

Dr. Reid’s Enthusiasm is Contagious

“Ever since I first met Dr. Reid I have been impressed with his passion for practicing excellent dentistry and communicating the concepts and importance of occlusion to his colleagues. My own teaching has benefited greatly from the animations he pioneered. If you want an exciting, motivating speaker who delivers essential knowledge with passion, backed up by the experience of a most successful practice, I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Reid to you.”

"For nearly 40 years, we have worked to maintain ourselves as the premier cosmetic and restorative doctor/technician team utilizing the concepts of complete dentistry. Only a handful have attained the level of complete fulfillment in their practices and lives that I am aware of. Only one of those is willing to share all that he has learned openly and completely. I've been around some great teachers: Kois, Dawson, and others. None are as compelling as Dr. Don Reid. He is a born teacher. He’ll raise you up as he sees more within you than you see yourself. Thank you for being our/my great encourager!"
