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 and her husband of 24 years have raised 3 wonderful children who are now pursuing their own careers. She enjoys running, skiing and snowmobiling with her family.
Her passion for dentistry began during her teenage years while working for her father, who was a dentist. She graduated from Oregon Health Sciences School of Dentistry in 1990 and has been practicing dentistry since. Nine years ago she began a journey of treating TMJ and Dental Sleep Medicine patients.
Dr. VanDyke has completed over 1000 hours of continuing education in Craniofacial Pain, TMD, and Dental Sleep Medicine. She is a Diplomate with the American Board of Craniofacial Pain and also a Diplomate with the American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine. At this time, she is the only doctor in the State of Montana who carries these degrees.
She regularly attends education that further advances her clinical skills to provide the best care for her patients. By treating the origin of 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 her patients and is committed to providing them the highest quality of care.
Dr. VanDyke limits her practice in Great Falls to treating patients with Craniofacial Pain, TMD, and Dental Sleep Medicine due to the overwhelming need for her services in our communities.
WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY
“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.”

“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!"

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
