Dr. Terry Bennett and Dr. Mayoor Patel formed Ben-Pat Institute to bring a higher and deeper level of education in the area of orofacial pain, temporomandibular joint disorders and dental sleep medicine.
When we advanced our individual practices to provide services around pain and sleep, no such program of mentorship or structured education existed. We went through years of trial and error which made us who we are. However, we don’t want other dentists to have to go through what we did. We want to make sure other dentists and their practices avoid hardship of incorporating such services. Instead, we want to see everyone succeed because patients desperately need this type of care and so few are doing it.
