• Orofacial Pain now identified by the American Dental Association as the 12th dental specialty.

  • Dr. Brad Eli

    From an early age it was clear that Dr. Eli would pursue a career in the medical field. His father was a dentist, his mother a surgical nurse. Dr. Eli’s commitment to delivering compassionate care was instilled in him by the example his parents set. Growing up in his father’s dental practice, dentistry was an obvious career choice. In 1987, Dr. Eli obtained his dental degree from Temple University.

    In 1990, Dr. Eli enrolled in UCLA’s first class in Orofacial Pain Management. This was an ideal fit. This new specialty in dental medicine provided Dr. Eli with the opportunity to integrate his deep knowledge of dental medicine with his inventive spirit. After graduating from this ground-breaking program, Dr. Eli’s clinical experience at Loma Linda University and Medical Center, UCSD Department of Anesthesiology and Scripps Memorial Hospital Pain Center, solidified his understanding of chronic pain management.

    In full-time practice for 30 years, Dr. Eli is appreciated by his many grateful patients. He treats all types of head, neck and jaw pain as well as Sleep Disordered Breathing. Recognized as a national leader for his expertise, Dr. Eli regularly consults with other leaders in the field of Orofacial Pain Management. In addition, Dr. Eli holds several patents for medical devices designed to improve patient care.
