Hobart Orofacial Pain
Dr Tony Eldridge began restricting his practice to Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJD) a decade ago now in an effort to treat himself and ease his own symptoms after suffering pain for many years from severe tooth clenching, headaches, neck pain, and a jaw joint that popped and clicked. His entire practice, patient information forms, web site, and empathy for his patients is based entirely on best evidence-based medicine and dentistry, and most importantly from the experience of being a patient himself.
Dr Eldridge has successfully treated thousands of people locally and interstate with some having even travelled from overseas countries. He regularly contributes articles of interest to various magazines, both online and offline media outlets, professional development courses, and non-government organisations and committees to help promote and educate the public and broad range of health professionals alike on the diagnosis, treatment, and effects of orofacial pain, TMJ disorders, and snoring / sleep apnoea in adults and children.
