What Happens During a TMJ Consultation?

TMJ Treatment Consultation Protocol

When the patient calls and request the appointment for their TMJ issues We ask them to come for a 45 min to an hour consultation with Dr. Deldar. This allows Dr. Deldar to find out what is going on and discuss what he does as a neuromuscular, physiologic approach to treat TMJ. Meanwhile he will answer any questions the patient has before he starts any treatment for them. The consultation is very informative and by the end of that the patient fully understands the nature of how Dr Drldar treats his TMJ patients. Usually we share some videos from previous cases that match with patients symptoms. During the consultation he usually does muscle palpation to confirm if the TMJ is the issues. In most cases he does scanning and computerize EMG evaluation of facial muscles that are effected by TMJ issues which this requires to be clean shave and no make up I order to connect Electrodes to attached directly to skin for muscles activity measurements.
The cost of consultation is $175.00. We require $75 payment at the time of scheduling to hold your spot and the rest of payment due after initial consultation appointment.
