Fishkill, NY (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Dear Doctor - Dentistry & Oral Health magazine, the nation's leading source of dental healthcare advice for consumers, today announced a new partnership with The TMJ Association, Ltd. (TMJA) that will bring the most up-to-date information to people suffering from Temporomandibular Disorders, also known as TMJ. TMJ Disorders are a complex and poorly understood set of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw joint and surrounding tissues and limitation in jaw movements. Researchers have found that TMJ Disorders often occur along with often painful conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic headache, endometriosis, fibromyalgia, interstitial cysititis, irritable bowel syndrome, sleep disorders, and vulvodynia. Working together, the dental magazine and the TMJA will produce accurate, unbiased, evidence-based content that can be found in the pages of Dear Doctor - Dentistry & Oral Health magazine, starting immediately.
"We feel honored to receive TMJA's vote of confidence and look forward to working with this trusted patient advocacy group to bring the latest information on treatment of TMJ Disorders to people suffering from temporomandibular pain and dysfunction," said Dr. Mario Vilardi, president and publisher of Dear Doctor - Dentistry & Oral Health. "We are always gratified when a prestigious consumer group or professional organization endorses our content. All the better when this leads to a collaboration that benefits the public."
For its exemplary, consumer-friendly content, Dear Doctor has also received endorsements from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists; American Association of Endodontists; and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
