LSU's Committment to Orofacial Pain Education


The widespread condition know as orofacial pain often has a devastating impact on a patient's quality of life. Some surveys estimate that 22 percent of Americans over 18 years of age commonly report pain in the orofacial pain region. When headache is included, the incidence of orofacial pain is much higher.

In response to the high incidence of orofacial pain, LSU has committed significant resources to recruiting educators who can provide patient care, as well as instruct students in the field of orofacial pain. According to Dr. Henry A. Gremillion, dean of LSU Health New Orleans School of Dentistry, "As health care professionals, we should be able to diagnose, treat, or at least know when to refer orofacial pain patients to a qualified practitioner."
