Constantly working towards innovations that help change the lives of chronic pain sufferers.
Dr. Lynn Lipskis' interest in the treatment of TMJ and sleep related breathing disorders began as a personal search for relief. Dr. Lynn was a chronic pain sufferer for years, through college and into early adulthood. After graduating dental school, she and her husband Dr. Ed Lipskis embarked on a journey to find a long-term solution to Dr. Lynn’s frequent migraines and nearly constant pain in her neck and back.
This experience is what drove her to shift the focus of her practice and exclusively treat patients suffering from TMJ dysfunction and sleep related breathing disorders. Dr. Lynn has made it her life’s work to help others find relief, deeply empathizing with their pain but also knowing the unparalleled feeling of triumph upon finding a long-term solution.
Dr. Ed Lipskis specializes in integrative orthodontics, TMJ dysfunction, sleep related breathing disorders, and chronic pain therapies. His interest in treating chronic pain started in an effort to help Dr. Lynn find relief. He is now acutely aware of the importance of healthy breathing and is passionate about helping others find a solution to problems that conventional healthcare just doesn’t quite have a handle on yet.
Dr. Ed believes that orthodontics is about more than just straightening teeth and uses integrative orthodontic techniques to address the functionality of the face and mouth before attending to aesthetics. He strives to treat patients in a way that contributes to their overall health and wellbeing, as well as gives them the smile they’ve always wanted.
Dr. Lynn received her Bachelor of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene from the University of Rhode Island before going on to earn her Doctorate in Dental Surgery from Loyola University School of Dentistry in Chicago. Dr. Ed Lipskis earned his Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctorate in Dental Surgery from Loyola University in Chicago.
Both Ed and Lynn have individually completed over 5000 hours of post-graduate continuing education in the areas of facial development, orthodontics, craniofacial pain, sleep medicine, dentofacial orthopedics, TMJ dysfunction, sleep related breathing disorders, and chronic pain therapies. They have traveled worldwide to study with some of the leaders in these fields, including Drs. John Witzig, Derek Mahony, John and Michael Mew, Mariano Rocabado, Viola Frymann, and Steven Olmos.
Together, they are constantly seeking innovative solutions to benefit their patients, staying current on the latest in TMJ dysfunction, sleep related breathing disorders, and chronic pain solutions.
