THE ORIGIN OF THE TMJ INSTITUTE

Most TMD (Temporomandibular Joints Disorders) patients are treated by dentists with mouth guards. However, many patients do not respond. To help these patients, and recognizing that TMD is a joint disorder, Dr. Hatz decided to join forces with internationally renowned Orthopaedic Surgeon Chadwick Prodromos MD to bring the ideal combination of expertise together to tackle this problem. They formed the TMD institute (TMDI) to utilize cutting edge yet proven treatments, for the treatment of TMD.
