TMJ Recognition

Dr. Arthur Chal is recognized internationally as a leading authority on TMJ problems and treatment. In addition to his clinical study and clinical skills, he has extra understanding of this disorder, since he himself has suffered from TMJ disorder.

We need to acknowledge that, while there is substantial extra post-graduate training for dentists to successfully treat this disorder, there is no separate discipline within dentistry for TMJ dentist, so it is not accurate to call anyone a TMJ specialist. There are also no professionally recognized standards for designating any one dentist as “the best” or the best in any field or treatment area. This does not prevent outside organizations from conducting surveys or making other determinations of who they believe is the best dentist or the best in any one treatment area.
