About The Atlanta Center For TMJ
“You shouldn’t have to rely on shots, prescription drugs with side-effects or surgery to get lasting relief.”
-DR. FRED ABELES
At the Atlanta Center for TMJ we know that you want to be healthy and pain-free. In order to achieve that, you need a plan of treatment that can deliver those results. The problem is many treatments for TMJ and headache pain focus on temporary relief and don’t last, which can leave you feeling frustrated or worried you’ll get worse.
We believe you shouldn’t have to rely on shots, prescription drugs with side-effects or surgery to get lasting relief. Which is why we developed MIRO Therapy® to treat TMJ and headache pain without shots, drugs or surgery. FORBES calls it, “A revolutionary way to treat pain.” It’s the secret to our extraordinary results.

Our approach to care
People usually come to us looking for help after they’ve had several previous failed treatment attempts. So first and foremost, we want to focus on getting real results for them right away. No more broken promises. No more pills. We want to stop the pain and restore function as quickly as possible.
When doctors don’t know what’s actually causing the pain, they’re just guessing at the solution. This necessitates a ‘shotgun approach’… trying many different prescriptions and therapies to see what might work.
We’ll be crystal clear on what’s causing the pain and dysfunction. Then we can treat it effectively the first time, every time.
We want our patients to know they can trust us with their lives and their medical problems… to absolutely know we have their best interests in mind first and foremost. Not insurance. Not profits. Not quotas of procedures. There’s no basis for any type of significant relationship without trust.
If we had a heart problem… we wouldn’t see a family physician or a neurologist or a chiropractor.
We’d see a cardiologist. Someone who treats it all day every day, who’s done thousands of these procedures, who has the most experience, who’s dedicated their practice to treating just this condition.
We treat TMJ problems all day, every day as a full-time practice… not just occasionally along with many other services.
Who’s the best? That’s the guy we want to see if we had a problem. The expert – the one who’s tops in their field. The one with the credentials. The smartest guy in the room. Why would we settle for anything less?
People should be responsible for their outcomes. Do what you say you’ll do. Deliver the goods. That’s why we offer a money-back guarantee on our treatment. We don’t need to… but we believe people should put their money where their mouth is. Be accountable and back up your claims.
How would we feel if roles were reversed and we were the patient? If we were the one worried whether the treatment will work? If we were the one worried if our condition will get worse? Worried if the prescriptions we’re taking are doing damage to our body?
What if we’d already tried five other doctor’s treatment plans? One by one. And failed at all of them? We’d be skeptical. We’d be tired of the pills and the pain and the broken promises.
We’ll walk in your shoes and treat you as if we ourselves were being treated.
What pharmaceutical companies and prescription drugs are doing to patients is just not right. We bring you an alternative.
We hate false or misleading claims. We hate charlatans. We hate hacks. And we hate people who over-promise and under-deliver. We’ve been on the receiving end of this way too many times in our own life. We avoid this at all costs.
How many times has the quick, easy road led to failure? It’s tempting because it’s quick and easy. But nine times out of ten, it never lasts.
Call us pessimists if you want… but there’s no magic bullet. Most things of value in life require time, effort and money. Health care is no different.
We hate the quick-fix approach to health care that insurance companies and drug companies promote.
We reject any entity that tries to control and manipulate us to their benefit and patients’ detriment. Politicians, lobbyists, insurance companies and Big Pharma all abuse their power for profit. They choose their bottom line over the public’s welfare.
We will NOT be controlled by insurance companies. Your diagnosis and therapy are decided without insurance company interference. There’s only one way to do this right… provide the very best of care and expertise with no compromises.
Something for nothing
If you were to make a list of things that anger us the most, this would have to be near the top. There’s no free lunch. And no, we’re not ‘entitled’ to everything. Most things of value require hard work. And money.
We don’t go along with the masses. Nothing amazing was ever invented by people who just “read the directions”.
We value innovation, creating new and improved methods of treatment that have never been done before… being unashamedly different and unique.
In many cases we do it to ourselves… creating things or systems that are complex to impress ourselves or others. But most of the time, simple is better.
In our field, there’s just ONE THING we have to get right. Accurately identify the tissue that’s causing the pain and dysfunction and the neural pathways that make the pain worse. Then we can reduce or eliminate the pain once and for all.
