ENT?: Has your girlfriend been to an ENT specialist? The dizziness may be to a sinus infection or an inner ear issue. There could be a tmj/tmd component, but i would want to know the potential cause, duration, and a thorough history.

Headache specialist: She should find a headache specialist, a neurologist specializing in headaches. The dizziness is a blood pressure issue. Make sure she drinks plenty of fluids and that her blood pressure is controlled.

Vertigo: If by getting dizzy you mean the room spins around, then she should also be evaluated by an ent. She might have benign positional vertigo (bpv). This can be a symptom that is not related to the headaches. The good news is if she does have bpv, it usually easily treated.
