Special Announcement – Dr Hakala Specialist in Orofacial Pain Designation

We are proud to announce that the Minnesota Board of Dentistry recently designated Dr. Roy Hakala as a Specialist in Orofacial Pain (OFP). Since the American Dental Association has not yet designated OFP as a specialty field, this represents a particular honor presented after consideration of his commitment to advanced education in the field both as a student and as a lecturer, his 43 years of treating orofacial pain including TMJ disorders and sleep breathing disorders, and his establishment of our dedicated Minnesota Craniofacial practice in 1994.

Dr. Hakala is one of the first practitioners in the country to be formally granted specialty status in orofacial pain. Congratulations, Dr. Hakala!
