Why Orofacial Pain Care?

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 what is causing pain can make you feel helpless and at the mercy of the pain.

 

By combining my experience as a dentist and my training in neurological and musculoskeletal disorders of the head and neck, my goal is to provide a proper diagnosis and to create a self-empowering therapy plan, so that you can start healing.
