Interstate Practitioner List
We regularly receive many emails from patients living interstate and overseas who find our website has a great deal of information that relates to them and their current symptoms.  For many, they have lived with pain and symptoms for a number of years without success from any treatment.  We therefore are often asked, “do you know of a practitioner such as yourself that lives in…..?”

The short answer is yes.  The long answer is that unfortunately experience has proven time and time again, that many people seeking answers to their pain and wishing to improve their quality of life are subjected to unnecessary and expensive irreversible and complex dental treatment. Therefore, whilst there may be many general dentists that have interests in and even may have a good deal of experience in treating orofacial pain and TMJ conditions, snoring and sleep apnoea, and special needs, we only refer patients onward to other specialists and doctors that have practices that dedicate 100% of their time to these areas.  By doing so, we know that these practitioners are experts in their field and that patients will generally find the best opportunity of assistance to the same high levels of standard and best evidence practice that we offer.
