Orofacial Pain and Oral Medicine

The Orofacial Pain and Oral Medicine Clinic specializes in treating patients with oral disease and oral pain, such as chronic headaches, teeth grinding, jaw disorders, breathing issues and oral diseases.

If you have pain in your head, face, mouth and/or neck, disease of the oral hard or soft tissues, facial spasticity, a temporomandibular disorder (TMD, which causes problems with the joints in your jaw), sleep disorders related to breathing problems or similar concerns, an orofacial pain specialist in our clinic may be able to help.

Residents (dentists in training) treat patients under the supervision of expert faculty dentists.

Becoming a Patient

The first step in receiving care at the Orofacial Pain and Oral Medicine Clinic is to schedule an initial consultation. A referral from your dentist is NOT required.

All patients are required to present valid photo identification (California driver’s license, California identification card, passport or other government-issued photo identification).

Please also bring your full mouth X-rays to your appointment.
