Orofacial Pain is the emerging dental specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of pain and dysfunction of the motor and sensory aspects of the trigeminal nerve system.

UP TOPP Temporomandibular Disorder and Orofacial Pain Program

This is the first university-based academic and clinical TMD & Orofacial Pain program through the combined efforts of the University of the Philippines and the Orofacial Pain Association. The objectives of the program are; to provide clinical training in the diagnosis and treatment of TMD & Orofacial Pain (OFP) and provide opportunities for research in the areas of TM joint disorders, masticatory muscle dysfunction and related facial pain.

As such, they will find a place in a full time or part time TMD practice collaborating with other specialties such as restorative dentistry, orthodontics, oral surgery and radiology and function as leaders of TMD teams in their own dental communities. T he First batch of UP TOPP is scheduled to begin on July 13, 2016. The venue is at the Centennial Room at the Un
