Dr. Maggan received his dental degree from the University of Tennessee in 1995. He has earned a Fellowship in the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (FAACP) along with being a Diplomate in the American Academy of Pain Management (DAAPM) and American Board of Craniofacial Pain (DABCP). Additionally, he is one of a handful dental practitioners in Georgia to be dual-boarded in Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine.
Dr. Maggan stays updated with new studies and scientific information and has taken well over 1500 hours of postgraduate continuing education in craniofacial pain, sleep disorders and orthodontics. Since 2003, he has limited his practice to the treatment of TMJ disorders, headaches, facial pain, sleep apnea and snoring.
Dr. Maggan is also a founding member of the Georgia Association of Sleep Professionals and has served as a board member of the organization. He lectures on topics related to craniofacial pain, temporomandibular disorders and dental sleep medicine to the local Dental and Medical community. Dr. Maggan has also previously served as part time clinical faculty at Georgia Perimeter College, Department of Dental Hygiene.
The Alpharetta office has been serving the community since 1997. In 2003, Dr. Maggan limited his practice to the treatment of craniofacial pain, TMJ disorders, sleep apnea and snoring. He strongly believes in treatment using a multidisciplinary model when necessary. Many times the patient will present with symptoms that are clearly a result of an improper function of the temporomandibular joint, however the cause may be due to poor posture, a bad bite, prior injuries distant from the site of where they may be experiencing pain etc. In these cases, working in a multidisciplinary approach betters the outcome of care. This may include physical therapists, chiropractors, internal medicine specialists, ENT, neurologists, oral surgeons, nutritionists, certified massage therapists, etc.
As a service to the community Dr. Maggan offers complimentary introduction courses to healthcare providers so that they may be able to understand and identify TMJ disorders within their own patient population, allowing them to start treatment early or refer them sooner so that years don’t go by before anyone identifies a problem. We typically see patients that have been suffering from a TMJ problem on average of 4.5 years before they find our office or are referred to our practice. Our referral sources are typically oral surgeons, ENT doctors, general dentists, orthodontists, family physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists and finally from our own satisfied pain-free patients.
