About TMJ Facial Pain Center
The initial focus for Dr. Grill is providing an evidenced based DIAGNOSIS for his patients. Developing an idea of where a patient has been (regarding TMJ damage/disease) and what their current situation is will help determine WHERE they are going and HOW to get there. Dr. Grill only provides non-surgical treatment protocols himself. He may elicit the helpful expertise of other clinicians based upon the diagnosis and management plan. Surgical referral is indicated in a small percentage of cases.
