Dr. Paul Riley, DDS
TMJ, Oral and Facial Pain Specialist
Mississippi's Source for Effective and Compassionate TMJ Care
Dr. Paul Riley is the only board certified TMJ and Orofacial Pain Specialist in private practice in the state of Mississippi. His board certification and diplomate status in the American Board of Orofacial Pain are regulated by the American Board of Dental Specialties.
Following his graduation from the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in New Orleans, Louisiana, Dr. Riley began a career in general dentistry. Soon thereafter, due to his expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ disorders, he was invited to join one of the few practices in the United States, limited to the treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
As the only doctor in private practice in Mississippi with board certification specifically in the field of orofacial pain, Dr. Riley has had the opportunity to evaluate and treat literally thousands of patients, many suffering from the most severe jaw pain, facial pain, and headaches imaginable. Referring dentists frequently requested Dr. Riley's assistance and advice regarding the complex dental needs of these patients, such as where to set the bite for a proposed dental procedure.
This need to work closely with referring dentists of Jackson, MS and surrounding areas of the Magnolia State prompted the transition of Dr. Riley's practice to its present form of a combination of general dentistry and TMJ/orofacial pain.
