Speaker Bio:

Dr. Janey Prodoehl is a Professor and Assistant Program Director in the Physical Therapy Program at Midwestern University Downers Grove, Illinois. She completed her entry-level physical therapy degree in Leeds, England, an advanced Master of Science degree in physical therapy at Rosalind Franklin University, and doctoral and post-doctoral studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She has over 30 years of experience as a physical therapist primarily in outpatient orthopedic settings and was certified as an orthopedic clinical specialist by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. Her doctoral studies examined motor control in focal dystonia, and her post-doctoral work examined functional and structural neuroimaging in patients with movement problems. She sees patients in the Physical Therapy Institute at Midwestern University with a physical therapy practice focused on neck pain, orofacial pain, and headache, and dry needling for musculoskeletal dysfunction. Her research focus is to ask questions related to motor control that will lead to an improved understanding of musculoskeletal movement dysfunction particularly as it relates to orofacial pain and postural dysfunction. Dr. Prodoehl has authored numerous publications from her work. She is a Certified Cervical & Temporomandibular Therapist by the Physical Therapy Board of Craniofacial & Cervical Therapeutics.

Course Description:

There have been recent advances in the recognition of orofacial pain as a specialty in dental medicine that have implications for the general dentist. In this presentation, we will explore the evidence-based approach to screening, diagnosis and management of several orofacial pain conditions including trigeminal neuralgia, headache, and temporomandibular disorder. The focus will be on patient presentations that are likely to present in the general dentistry setting. We will discuss issues related to interprofessional collaboration in the care of complex patient presentations and will provide specific indications for referral. Casepresentations will show how interprofessional management can facilitate
improvement in patient outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the evidence-based diagnosis and typical management of trigeminal neuralgia, headache, and temporomandibular disorder.
2. Identify key differential diagnosis issues in non-odontogenic orofacial pain specific to patients that may present to the general dentist.
3. Describe the interdisciplinary roles of members of the healthcare team in the management of patients with orofacial pain, with focus on general dentists and physical therapists.
4. Identify barriers to interprofessional collaboration between dentistry and physical therapy in the management of patients with TMD and potential strategies to promote improved interprofessional collaboration.

The ILAGD General Assembly meeting will take place at the conclusion of the September 17 CAGD meeting.
