Since opening his doors over 35 years ago, he has achieved his goal of providing guidance and care to patients with temporomandibular problems, facial pain, headaches and sleep related breathing disorders.  His continual training and ongoing education have enhanced his knowledge and helped him remain focused on providing the time and attention that these problems require. He has co-authored a book for the public entitled, ‘Dr, Why Does My Face Still Ache?” and continues to give lectures to dental students and residents, medical grand rounds and to numerous dental societies and study clubs.

Dr. Tanenbaum currently holds several positions, including: Clinical Assistant Professor at the School of Dental Medicine at the State University of New York in Stony Brook where he is the Director of the Orofacial Pain Course given to the third-year dental students.  He is also the Section Head of the Division of OrofacialPain/TMD/Sleep Medicine in the Northwell Health Department of Dental Medicine at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center; and Clinical Assistant Professor, Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine.

  • Help restorative dentists and dental specialists better understand that there is no pain experience until the human brain renders an opinion.As a result, understanding ‘who the patient is’ before establishing a working diagnosis becomes that much more critical.
  • Help restorative dentists and dental specialists organize a treatment plan that not only addresses the diagnoses but can be implemented by the patient.
