presented by Nathan J. Pettit, DMD, MSD

Patients in pain, especially chronic pain, are often told it is all in their head. This lecture will discuss the psychology of pain, both in the direction of pain’s effect on the psyche, as well as the effect of the mind on the physiology.

Nathan Pettit is a graduate of UNLV School of Dental Medicine (2011) and earned his  certificate in Prosthodontics from the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston TX (2014). He earned his MSD degree from University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston (2014) with research focusing on CBCT imaging of the hyoid bone. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics and acts as assistant director of the TMD/Orofacial Pain Clinic at the DeBakey Medical Center. His current practice is devoted to the treatment of craniomandibular disorders at MedCenter TMJ, located near the medical center in Houston, TX.
