DR. SCHUYLER VANDYKE IS THE ONLY DENTIST IN MONTANA WITH DIPLOMATE DEGREES FROM THE AMERICAN BOARD OF CRANIOFACIAL PAIN, THE AMERICAN BOARD OF CRANIOFACIAL DENTAL SLEEP MEDICINE AND IS A DIPLOMATE FOR AMERICAN BOARD OF DENTAL SLEEP MEDICINE.
Dr. VanDyke is a native Montanan and comes from a long line of dentists within her family. She and her husband of 25 years have raised 3 wonderful children who now are pursuing their own careers. She enjoys all outdoor sports from running, skiing, and snowmobiling to surfing behind the family boat!
Her passion for dentistry began in her teenage years while working for her father, who was also a dentist. She graduated from Oregon Health Sciences University School of Dentistry in 1990 and practiced general dentistry for 29 years. Half-way through her career as a general dentist, she began a long educational journey in TMJ and Dental Sleep Medicine. Her passion for these patients became so great that she sold her dental practice in 2019 and started TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Montana in Great Falls. She is proud of starting the first and only office in Montana dedicated solely to treating TMJ and Dental Sleep Medicine.
Dr. VanDyke has completed over 1200 hours of continuing education in Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine. She is the only Triple-Board certified dentist in Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine in the State of Montana. Her Diplomate degrees are with the American Board of Craniofacial Pain (ABCP), American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine (ABCDSM), and American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). She is a 2020 member on the Board of Directors for the Academy of Craniofacial Pain.
She regularly attends continuing education that further advances her clinical skills to provide the best care for her patients. By treating the origin of the patients pain and sleep problems, it has become clear to Dr. VanDyke that medications are not the long-term answer for patients with these conditions. Dr. VanDyke enjoys educating patients by giving them the tools they need to live healthier lives independent of medications and “Band-Aid” fixes. She has the greatest compassion for each patient and is committed to providing them the highest quality of care.
Dr. VanDyke is now considered a specialist in this area and limits her practice to treating only TMJ and Dental Sleep Medicine at TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Montana.
