The educational and research philosophy of the Piper Education and Research Center is based upon seeking the truth about the disorders affecting the temporomandibular joint. Our goal is to advance the highest standards of diagnosis and treatment. We shall maintain the latest parameters of care for all phases of joint, occlusal, and pain management. These standards shall be shared openly and thoroughly with treating doctors and with the public at large.
We are dedicated to seeking the truth through lifetime learning. In advancing the fields of temporomandibular disorders, facial pain, and occlusion we shall strive to continually improve our treatment recommendations as research and discovery dictate. All students shall be encouraged to maintain an analytical mind, a curious intellect, and a passion for new knowledge. Research and discovery shall be an integral component of the full educational experience.
As we recognize better diagnosis and treatment, direct attention shall be given to the healing of patients and to the education of other doctors. The ultimate well-being of the patient shall be the most crucial objective of all education and research at the Piper Education and Research Center.
It is our ultimate goal that educational and research truths shall lead the profession by promoting the highest standards of patient care. We shall seek to be the source of current information for the medical and dental professions and for the population of patients in need of direct and honest treatment.
