"Thanks for the fantastic meeting. I have been going to TMD and pain meetings for over 20 years and this was one of the best that I have ever attended. The idea of bringing together all the experts and patient advocates for all the comorbidities was a great idea. We all need to get together and find those common purposes. The meeting truly reflected what I see as a clinician and what the vast majority of our patients report. Thanks for all your hard work. It is obvious that you are accomplishing things that could not be done without your efforts! There are a lot of providers and patients who will benefit from what you are doing."
