Huff Specialist

Dr. Huff Is Now an Orofacial Pain Specialist!

Exciting news! Dr. Huff has recently completed the rigorous training required to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Orofacial Pain.

Orofacial Pain is a relatively new specialty recognized by the American Board of Dental Specialties. It involves the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of a range of disorders which are responsible for chronic head, neck pain, and dental pain. This specialization allows Dr. Huff to not only recognize and manage pain with dental causes but also those caused by a number of other sources, including:

• Temporomandibular Joint Disorders, commonly referred to as “TMJ”
• Muscle pain in the neck, temples, and jaw muscles
• Neuropathic pain, like Trigeminal Neuralgia
• Identification and dental management of Sleep Disorders, like Obstructive Sleep Apnea
• Headaches like Migraines and “Sinus headaches”
