MEET DR. SCHUYLER VANDYKE, DMD, DABCP, DABCDSM, DABDSM OF THE TMJ & SLEEP THERAPY CENTRE OF MONTANA
Dr. Schuyler VanDyke is the only dentist in Montana with Diplomate Degrees from the American Board of Craniofacial Pain, the American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine and is a Diplomate for American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.
Dr. VanDyke is a native Montanan and comes from a long line of dentists within her family. She and her husband of 25 years have raised 3 wonderful children who now are pursuing their own careers. She enjoys all outdoor sports from running, skiing, and snowmobiling to surfing behind the family boat!
Her passion for dentistry began in her teenage years while working for her father, who was also a dentist. She graduated from Oregon Health Sciences University School of Dentistry in 1990 and practiced general dentistry for 29 years. Half-way through her career as a general dentist, she began a long educational journey in TMJ and Dental Sleep Medicine. Her passion for these patients became so great that she sold her dental practice in 2019 and started TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Montana in Great Falls. She is proud of starting the first and only office in Montana dedicated solely to treating TMJ and Dental Sleep Medicine.
Dr. VanDyke has completed over 1200 hours of continuing education in Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine. She is the only Triple-Board certified dentist in Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine in the State of Montana. Her Diplomate degrees are with the American Board of Craniofacial Pain (ABCP), American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine (ABCDSM), and American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). She is a 2020 member on the Board of Directors for the Academy of Craniofacial Pain.
She regularly attends continuing education that further advances her clinical skills to provide the best care for her patients. By treating the origin of the patients pain and sleep problems, it has become clear to Dr. VanDyke that medications are not the long-term answer for patients with these conditions. Dr. VanDyke enjoys educating patients by giving them the tools they need to live healthier lives independent of medications and “Band-Aid” fixes. She has the greatest compassion for each patient and is committed to providing them the highest quality of care. Dr. VanDyke is now considered a specialist in this area and limits her practice to treating only TMJ and Dental Sleep Medicine at TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Montana.
WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY
“Since my first visit, I am pain-free. Dr. VanDyke and staff are amazing! They are thorough, caring, and knowledgeable. When I first came here my pain was a 10 and now it is a 1!”
KK (16 years old)
"I had severe jaw/facial/neck pain and debilitating headaches since age 15. I always attributed them to genetics and years of orthodontics. Medication helped, but only to a point. I met with Dr. VanDyke and her team and all I can say is ‘WOW’! Dr. VanDyke was able to determine the root of my issues and through appliance therapy and exercises, my symptoms reduced significantly! I can proudly say I am medication free now. I have my life back!"
MH (40 years old)
“When I first came to the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Montana I had a lot of jaw pain from grinding my teeth. Also, snoring and waking with a sore throat was a huge problem. I woke unrefreshed and in pain. After seeing Dr. VanDyke and her team, I am now sleeping well with my nighttime snoring appliance and waking refreshed with no jaw pain. Everyone has been so caring and helpful in this wellness journey. I’m grateful for the relief and all the help I have received.”
KJ (57 years old)
“Dr. VanDyke was able to get rid of my headaches within two
weeks of starting the therapy. I had seen multiple practitioners
such as my general dentist, acupuncturist, chiropractor and
neurologist with no solution. I was amazed at how much my
poor sleep and airway were contributing to my migraines! Dr.
VanDyke gave me my life back!”

I started with TMJ &Sleep Therapy Center in June this year. I was grinding teeth with mouth pieces made at the dentist... offices that didn't help with my other issues. HEADACHES, not sleeping, jaw popping, pain in right ear, sinus issues. I was hoping only for help with headaches and sleep, and grinding. I recieved my more than ever expected. I sleep through the night, headache free, popping gone. Mouth pieces are so different than others I have had made. They truly gave me my life back. Thank you!read more
