The Facial Pain Clinic cares for patients with non-dental facial pain conditions such as: pain-related temporomandibular disorder (TMD), burning mouth syndrome, trigeminal neuralgia, persistent idiopathic facial pain (atypical facial pain) and trigeminal neuropathic pain. The clinic does not cater for oral medicine conditions or dental pain issues.
If you are unsure about whether the Clinic can help you, then please feel free to enquire with Dr. McMillan (Contact).
Dr. McMillan is happy to receive referrals from other healthcare providers or self-referrals by patients. Referral is by completion of the Referral Pro Forma (below).
Please note that Dr. McMillan is not registered with any private health insurance companies - hence patients may wish to check with their insurance provider prior to booking an appointment.
