Welcome! We are passionate to help you by diminishing or preventing chronic pain.
What you can expect when you visit our clinic for the first time: An orofacial pain specialist will evaluate and review your current symptoms and medical history, examine areas of the face, teeth, jaw, head and neck, and order any diagnostic testing, if necessary. Also, the specialist will provide a self-care program to reduce any strain to the area and encourage healing. A pain relief treatment plan
will be developed and if necessary, sent to your insurer for prior authorization and a summary letter will go to your referring doctor.
You may also be asked for information about your:
- General Health
- Previous diagnosis and treatments (including EMG, MRI, CT scans)
- Health insurance
If you have medical records related to your visit with us, please send them in writing (fax or mail) before
your visit. This allows our providers to be fully prepared for your visit.

Be aware that in the event you see more than one of our clinicians on the same date of service, your insurance company has the right to charge you a copay for each of the clinicians seen. If the insurance company assesses more than one copay, we reserve the right to collect all required copays.
