Victoria Wexley, DDS

Welcome to Wexley Headache Clinic

Wexley Headache Clinic is dedicated to relieving the pain and suffering endured by victims of chronic headaches, TMJ disorders, face and neck pain, snoring and sleep apnea, and improving the quality of their lives.

We are very proud of our service to manage snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea with the use of dental devices (alternative to surgery and CPAP).

When you see a headache doctor in our clinic, you will receive compassionate care employing a range of traditional and proven alternative therapies.  Many of these complementary therapies help our patients achieve and maintain relief without the need for conventional medications.

To serve our patients we construct our treatment as a well-defined, time-limited program tailored to their individual needs. The program is outpatient-based and usually lasts six to eight weeks. In developing an individual treatment program for a patient, key medical information gathered from the patient to correctly diagnose the source of the pain. After completing a series of questionnaires, the patient is examined by a doctor.

Though all people share the same basic physical make-up, each person is unique. Your lifestyle, the foods you eat, your genetic heritage, even your profession and where you live can influence the reasons you may be having chronic headaches or pain. The triggers that set off headaches are as unique as the people experiencing them. That’s why no single treatment is right for every person.

That’s also why our patients are our partners in determining what causes their pain and/or headaches, and the best treatment or even combination of treatments that will achieve relief. If you are suffering from chronic headaches, TMJ disorder (TMD), snoring or apnea,  if you have already tried treatments that have not worked, or if your present treatment is not helping, by all means call for an appointment. Some of the most common conditions we treat at the Clinic include   migraine, menstrual migraine, TMJ disorders, apnea, snoring, chronic daily headaches, cluster headaches, medication overuse headaches, hemicrania continua, and trigeminal and postherpetic neuralgias. 

The headache clinic is led by myself, a board-certified orofacial specialist  with extensive experience in headaches and pain relief.  In our office we utilize medications, nutritional supplements, nerve blocks, Trigger Point injections, Botox, and other modalities.

We accept many insurance plans to make our services as accessible as possible. To protect and better serve our patients we utilize  electronic medical records.

Thank you for visiting our site.
