Reach Out For Patient Support

If you would like to speak with one of our patient Volunteer Support Contacts, please email us at

Beyond the Pain, Beyond the Dysfunction, There’s Hope

For some with TMJ, pain and dysfunction can be relentless  leading to a feeling of hopelessness and depression. A CDC study finds that nearly one in 10 suicide deaths in the U.S. occurs in people with chronic pain. If you or someone you love needs support, immediately contact the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
