"Case Studies in Orofacial Pain and Headache" will be an ongoing series of continuing education (CE) on orofacial pain, headache, and related pain topics focusing on case studies. It will consist of a half-day program (4 hours), six times a year (every 2 months) with 9 orofacial pain program collaborators. The CE series is co-sponsored by Harvard School of Dental Medicine and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine's The Craniofacial Pain Center and Office of Continuing Education.
