Moos Tower

TMD, Orofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine Clinic

The TMD, Orofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine Clinic is located in Room 6-440 Moos Tower in the School of Dentistry, where faculty and staff are involved in patient care, teaching and research. We provide care to patients with TMJ (temporomandibular joint), jaw, head, and/or neck pain disorders, including clicking, locking of the TMJ, difficulty using the jaw and atypical toothaches. We also provide care for sleep-related breathing disorders, including sleep apnea and snoring.

This University Clinic began in 1979 under the direction of James R. Fricton, D.D.S., M.S. Services are coordinated with a team of dentists, physical therapists and health psychologists, and consultations with other physicians are requested as needed.

The first appointment involves an evaluation by one of our dentists. An individualized treatment plan is then designed for each patient. To schedule an appointment for an evaluation, please call us at (612) 626-0140 or e-mail the clinic at tmdclinic@umn.edu.
