Effective management of orofacial pain is dependent upon accurate and complete diagnosis. Differential diagnosis of painful conditions involving the orofacial region represents a significant challenge to the dental team. The complex innervation of the head and neck sets the stage for potentially confusing pain referral patterns. This increases the possibility of misdiagnosis and subsequent well-intended, but misdirected care. The clinician must have a basic understanding of anatomic, physiologic, 

 neurologic and psychologic aspects for the pain experience. This program will emphasize the proposed mechanisms and clinical characteristics of various temporomandibular disorder (TMD) and non-temporomandibular disorder orofacial pain conditions. Special emphasis will be placed on conditions which may be commonly seen in the dental office. Case presentations and management considerations will be included in the presentation.
