Orofacial Pain (Dentistry)
Oregon Health and Sciences University School of Dentistry
Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at USC - Orofacial Pain and Oral Medicine
In addition to providing comprehensive care within the scope of general dentistry for more than 20 years, in 2015 I completed a hybrid residency-Master's degree program that provided me with advanced, multidisciplinary training to expertly diagnose and treat patients suffering from orofacial pain conditions, orofacial sensory disturbances, oral motor disturbances, and oral mucosal diseases. I also have training in the applications of dental appliances for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing. As many of these issues arise as the manifestation of systemic disease, I have become well versed in recognizing the general medical conditions which elicit oral manifestations, and treating patients with medically complex/compromised histories as well. This career experience has made me a sought after consultant to other dentists and physicians, helping to deliver care at various levels, such as direct treatment (prescribing medication and/or rehabilitative services), providing direction of a multidisciplinary team, providing coordination of care with other healthcare providers, and providing medico-legal and subject matter expert consultative services to public and private agencies pursuant to optimal healthcare delivery and utilization review.
