The Medical Advisory Board of TNA-the facial pain organization was founded by Peter Jannetta and chaperoned by him through the growth spurt of the organization founded to provide support to patients throughout the country and world with neuropathic facial pain. The board consists of experts in the varied fields involved in the treatment of these patients-neurosurgeons, neurologists, psychologists, oral surgeons, dentists and nurses amongst them.
In conjunction with the Board of Directors, a civilian committee of leaders, the MAB is challenged with the job of providing thoughtful information to patients with facial pain so that they may receive the most rational and clinically acceptable treatment possible. Dr. Brown was recently host along with fellow board member, David Sirois, DMD of the 25th year anniversary meeting of the organization in New York City. More than 300 patients attended the two-day conference held at the NYU School of Dentistry and sponsored by Winthrop University Hospital.
