Alfred Tennant, DDS

Diplomate, American Board of Orofacial Pain, Dr. Tennant is the only Orofacial Pain Specialist in the Tampa Bay area.

Dr. Tennant completed a 2-year fellowship at the University of Florida, Parker Mahan Craniofacial Pain Center.  Prior to this, he received his undergraduate training at Loyola University in New Orleans then his doctorate from LSU School of Dentistry, also in New Orleans.

Some common pain conditions he treats are the many types of TMJ/TMD disorders, the many types of headache, bite problems, nerve pain, burning mouth, dystonia, and aftereffects of head, neck or face trauma. Many patients, some which have no pain, also have their obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) treated with oral appliances by Dr. Tennant. This is often done in collaboration with our surgeons, who treat OSA surgically.

His goal is to turn his patients into independent former patients. Safely.
