Dr. Joe - Fitness Advocate

Dr. Pelerin is a fitness advocate who lifts weights 2-3 times a week, is an amateur chef who enjoys creating new dishes for friends and family, plays tennis, and enjoys bird hunting, fishing and dirt bike riding.

Dr. Pelerin himself experienced problems with teeth grinding for 25 years during which he tried several costly but ineffective devices that were uncomfortable to wear and did little to reduce grinding activities at night. As a result of that personal experience, Dr. Pelerin invented GrindRelief Nighttime which is inexpensive, easy to fit at home, comfortable to wear, and highly effective.
