Dr. Mickiewicz is a general dentist who is an expert in the  treatment of headaches, facial pain, TMJ syndrome, and Sleep Apnea. He is currently serving patients’ dental needs at his private dental practice in Sacramento, California. “At the office of Timothy E. Mickiewicz, DDS, our patients experience life-changing dentistry. Our commitment is to you, our patient. We seek to empower you, to enlighten you, and to give you the best treatment possible for your unique dental needs. We have developed a comprehensive, conservative treatment approach that consistently shows great results” as stated on the dental practice’s website. 

As an advocate for patients’ rights, Dr. Mickiewicz has introduced many innovative procedures that have become the standard in the industry. Always looking for the most conservative, efficacious and evidenced based solution. “In Latin, the word “doctor” means “teacher.” I love to teach, and consequently, I try to learn from the best. This tremendous amount of personal research has allowed me to train my peers in the management of dental and orofacial pain. I have lectured extensively on my dental passions, which include TMJ disorders, Sleep Medicine, and orthodontics” as stated by Dr. Mickiewicz.

Dr. Mickiewicz earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific in 1982. Dr. Mickiewicz holds dual board certification by the Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorders Disciplines and the Academy of Integrative Pain Management. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Stanislaus Dental Society, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the Sacramento District Dental Society, and more. 

Dr. Mickiewicz is a huge supporter of the arts, especially the New Helvetia Theater, an innovative, cutting edge company that brings unique productions rarely seen except major theater hotbeds like New York and Chicago. He considers himself a sucker for any theater program, so it’s no wonder that two of his children are professional actors in musical theater. Dr. Mickiewicz is the “unofficial dentist” to artists and actors who come from outside the area to perform. 

Dr. Mickiewicz spent nine years as the co-chair of the fundraising campaign to build the new Alex G. Spanos Heart Center – the number one heart program in the western states and in the top ten in the nation. 

Dr. Mickiewicz was recently featured in Sacramento Magazine’s issue of “Faces of Sacramento” for his extensive work in TMJ therapy and Dental Sleep Medicine. He is highly regarded in both the dental and medical and legal communities and has an extensive network of medical partnerships throughout Northern California. Essentially the “go-to doc” for the seemingly unsolvable conditions. 

Dentistry, is a branch of medicine and few people realize the amount of medical knowledge necessary to treat this unique niche. Constantly tweaking and beta testing effective, conservative treatments so that his patients can experience relief from their dental and orofacial pain as well as controlling life threatening Sleep issues, has been a passion for over 30 years.

Dr. Mickiewicz is originally from the East Bay area, graduating from De La Salle High School in Concord,  and St. Mary’s College of California. The Christian Brothers motto of “Enter to learn, leave to serve” is ingrained in his psyche. “I always look to give more than I receive.  I have been blessed in many ways. If I can use my talents to ease the pain of others, and literally save lives, I am coming close to being able to repay what was given to me by the Christian Brothers” Facial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine are complicated, It is not for the docs that want to dabble.  If they want to learn, my door is always open to students, dentists and physicians. He lives in East Sacramento, blocks from his office, In October 2017 he opened a new office that is more conducive to the technological advances necessary, with a constant reminder that listening is the best diagnostic tool. But like chess he is always a few steps ahead of the dental crowd.. Located in Midtown it is an homage to Mid-Century modernism.  Always surrounded by great art and vintage furniture , it is a great blend of old and new. “The concept of surrounding yourself and staff with great art, much of it from local legends or gifts from grateful patients, fosters creativity and a reminder to think outside of the box. There is so much dogma in the field and our practice is renowned for taking on the toughest cases, with a relentless pursuit of viable, conservative solutions”.

Dr. Mick is immensely proud of his three grown children and four grandchildren who are perfect in every way.
