Dizziness: Great question. Sometimes its due to TMD, dehydration, vision problems, inner ear issues or stress. Start by drinking a lot of fluids, see your eye doctor to make sure your prescription. (i had the same problem when my prescription was wrong) and get a good check up with your doctor

ENT: Having a balance problem and ear pain is a concern that should first be seen by an ENT dr. Let him/her rule out specific ear issues before possibly consulting with a tmj/tmd specialist.

Ears vs TMD: I agree with Dr. Bassman. Have ears checked by ENT. If unresolved, see TMJ expert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.
