IUSD TMJ Institute

About the TMJ Institute:

The Indiana University School of Dentistry (IUSD) TMJ Institute is a multidisciplinary, collaborative clinic designed to support the treatment of patients with dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).  By establishing a customized, interprofessional consensus to patient care, the IUSD TMJ Institute offers a "One-Stop Shop" for patients referred to the Institute with intractable TMJ symptoms. It creates a better understanding of a patient's pathology and enables TMJ patients to feel more valued by playing an active role in their own treatment planning process. 


Dr. Shaun Matthews and some of the other members of the TMJ Institute share their insights in this series of videos.



Presenting the IUSD TMJ Symposium 2023:


Comprehensive Review of Patient Care

This second lecture course on the multidisciplinary management of TMJ disorders forms an important part of the TMJ Institute’s educational mission. This year’s focus is addressing initial diagnosis and treatment options. Here at Indiana University School of Dentistry’s TMJ Institute, we have created a true, multidisciplinary clinic model that is both innovative and unique by offering what we call a “one-stop shop” for the management of patients with challenging, chronic TMJ problems. Our mission is to provide comprehensive, contemporary, collaborative care for all TMJ patients in Indiana and beyond and to inform the current and future generations of oral health care professionals about the fundamental principles of the management of temporomandibular dysfunction.

The course content will be delivered via a series of didactic lectures, case presentations and a moderated panel discussion. It will provide you the opportunity to learn from a range of specialists with specific expertise in the management of TMJ disorders including an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, orofacial pain specialist, physical therapist, psychiatrist, comprehensive care dentist, and social worker.
