Philosophy of Care

At the Minnesota Craniofacial Center for TMJ & Sleep Treatment, we are committed to improving your quality of life through relieving pain, restoring function, and optimizing health.

Our focus is on patient-centered care with a comprehensive approach. Our first goal is to identify the root causes and perpetuating factors.

Why are you not sleeping? Why are you in pain? How did you get that way? What are some of the factors that are perpetuating your symptoms? We want to figure out why are you clenching and why are you having this pain. Then as a result of restoring jaw function and helping patients breathe better, pain and sleep issues can improve.

It is only through understanding of the underlying problem and developing personalized approaches that we can achieve successful treatment outcomes. After all, sleeping well is essential for healing and for feeling good.

On an emotional level, we understand the effect that chronic pain and sleep disorders can take on your mental and physical health. We work together with your other providers using different modalities to help reduce stress and improve our patients’ emotional well-being.
