A.T. Still University-Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health’s Advanced Care Clinic recently added the Orofacial Pain, Oral Medicine, and Dental Sleep Solutions Institute to provide expert treatment for patients who require care in these areas.

ATSU-Arizona School of Dentistry is at 5835 E. Still Circle in Mesa.

The state-of-the-art clinic provides diagnosis and treatment for orofacial pain, temporomandibular joint problems, temporomandibular joint disorder and sores or growths in the mouth. In addition, oral appliance therapy is available for patients with diagnosed sleep apnea, according to a release.

The institute is unique as the only clinic in Arizona that addresses orofacial pain, TMD, oral medicine, and sleep apnea issues, with a faculty consisting of multiple specialists. This allows patients to have consultations with several different specialists in a single visit, providing a convenient and cost-effective way to address these important health issues, the release states.

To schedule an appointment for the Orofacial Pain, Oral Medicine, and Dental Sleep Solutions Institute, call 480-248.-8107. For those interested in a comprehensive dental exam, call the ATSU-ASDOH clinic at 480-248-8100.

The team of dentists providing care at the institute includes:

  • Joseph R. Cohen, an assistant professor at ATSU-ASDOH, where he is director of the orofacial pain program;
  • Seena Patel, who serves as associate director of oral medicine and is an associate professor at ATSU-ASDOH;
  • Bruce White, an assistant professor at ATSU-ASDOH, where he helped establish a sleep apnea program for the school; and
  • Rebecca Schaffer, an adjunct professor at ATSU-ASDOH whose area of expertise is patients with special needs, chronic pain and complex medical histories.
