Contact your dental society for names of regional TMJ "experts".
It may be a prosthodonitst, oral surgeon, or orofacial pain specialist.

In brief: TMJ/TMD specialist

I would ask my dentist to refer you to a tmj/tmd specialist.
Some regular dentists do treat tmj, but i would ask them to refer you to a dentist who treats tmj. If in doubt, oral surgeon, neurologists and ENT offices are great for knowing who to refer to.

In brief: No specialty exists

Start with a general dentist that really understands bites and tmj.
Currently, there is no recognized specialty, although many doctors focus their practices in this area.
