Patient evaluation includes a thorough history and examination, and additional testing when indicated. This could include radiographic, MR or CT imaging, mucosal imaging, biopsy, oral cultures, serology, salivary flow measurements, and taste and smell testing.  Therapy will vary and is dependent on diagnosis. For example, temporomandibular disorder management follows a model physical/rehabilitative medicine of stepped, multi-modal care.  Patients with a temporomandibular disorder typically receive an appropriate combination of behavioral therapy, medication, physical medicine, and appliance therapy if indicated.  Detailed reports are made to the referring health care provider.

The goal is to provide evidence-based care that is supported by current, peer-reviewed scientific literature. Patients are often managed in a multi-disciplinary model with other dental or medical providers that include all areas of dental practice, and medical providers such as Internal Medicine, Neurology, Otolaryngology, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Rheumatology, Psychology.  Consultations with medical specialists are coordinated with the patient’s primary care physician.

We welcome your referrals.
