Why Orofacial Pain Care?
In 2022, after 24 years of practicing general dentistry, I decided to transition my practice to focus on helping those suffering from Orofacial Pain disorders.
Like many of you, I have family members who suffer from chronic pain conditions. Two of my kids suffer from migraine headaches with auras. Other family members suffer from pain conditions that involved multiple misdiagnoses and wrong treatments, before the correct diagnosis was finally made. The stress from not knowing why you feel pain often makes people feel helpless and at the mercy of the pain. It's important not only to properly diagnose a condition, but to also provide a self-empowering therapy plan.

Please note that in the State of Illinois, Dr. Wang currently maintains an active general dentistry license. Illinois requires dental specialty licensure, however the state has not yet updated their system to offer specialty licensure for Orofacial Pain. Dr. Wang will be applying for a specialty license once it is available.
