In brief: Dentist first

Normally, depending on who might have diagnosed you, i would consider a dentist first.
The dentist may decide, depending on his/her expertise, to treat you or refer you to a tmj/tmd specialist, oral surgeon, ent, physical therapist, etc.

In brief: Let see

You could go to your dentist and he will refer you to an oral surgeon.
