Why we do it

When Dr. Wartell began practicing dentistry in Santa Fe in 2002, he found that many patients were having TMJ problems, and there was no one in Santa Fe to whom he could refer these patients. He referred many patients to Dr. Dan Clifford at the Albuquerque Craniofacial Pain Center, and became friends with Dr. Clifford. Dr. Clifford suggested that it would be beneficial to many of Dr. Clifford's patients from Northern New Mexico, if they could be treated in Santa Fe instead of traveling to Albuquerque.

Dr. Clifford encouraged Dr. Wartell to join the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain as the best organization from which to learn to treat patients with TMJ problems. Dr. Wartell took Dr. Clifford's advice, and has been studying and treating patients with head and neck pain and dysfunction ever since.

Dr. Wartell receives referrals from dentists, physicians, chiropractors, and patients throughout Northern New Mexico.
