If you suffer from chronic migraines, you know how difficult they are to effectively diagnose and treat. The TruDenta system of diagnosis and treatment was developed to help uncover and resolve the frequently-overlooked causes behind your chronic migraines.
The TruDenta diagnostic process uses the latest technology to closely examines the nerves, muscles, and ligaments that surround the head, neck, and jaw to find any signs of the inflammation and chronic stress that can lead to constant headaches.
If examination shows that your headaches are actually being caused by musculoskeletal problems, we can help. All TruDenta doctors have years of experience as dental professionals working with the delicate musculature of the jaw, neck, and head—a perfect background to implement TruDenta's process of progressive rehabilitation and physical therapy for the damaged joints and stressed musculature that cause chronic headaches.
Dr. Mary Cresseveur-Reed, FAGD was born and raised in Pennsylvania. Doc C, her husband and two sons reside in Coopersburg. She received her B.S. in Biology at Moravian College. Doc C Attended Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in New York where she earned her D.D.S. with a concentration in pediatric dentistry. She is an Alumni of Pride Institute, a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation and a fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry.
"I graduated from Columbia University with my DDS and a dream of providing quality, gentle dental care to my community. Now that I’m a mother, it’s become so much more. By dedicating my life to helping others, I can set a positive example for my children, as well.”
“Today, there are more advances in dentistry in a year than in an entire decade just a generation ago. If I relied solely on my formal education, I might be unaware of a breakthrough technology or new procedure that could benefit you. One of the ways I continually fine-tune my knowledge is through membership in national and regional professional organizations.”
“Giving back to a community that has given so much to me is a joy and a privilege I do not take lightly. That’s why I like to spend my free time participating in charity and volunteer work around the community.”

Our proprietary T-Scan technology allows our doctors to precisely assess your mouth and jaw for dental imbalances during opening, closing, and chewing, right down to the amount and direction of the force exerted by each individual tooth.
Dental imbalances often cause chronic muscle tension and inflammation, which can in turn limit your head and jaw movement. Our doctors measure and monitor the movement range of your head and jaw to more accurately determine the most effective treatment plan for your symptoms.
Headaches can occur for many different reasons — in order to find the source of your headaches and determine if the TruDenta treatment process will be effective for you, your TruDenta doctor will speak with you in detail about your past headaches and their specific symptoms.
Your TruDenta doctor will locate the latent trigger points in your face and neck that restrict motion and contribute to jaw imbalances — these knots of tense muscle are often missed without a thorough examination.
Jaw or head trauma can cause a variety of hidden changes in the jaw, neck, and face that may later manifest as stiffness, pain, or headaches. By cataloging any possible sources of damage, your TruDenta doctor can more effectively focus your treatment plan.
Therapeutic ultrasound treatment returns circulation to chronically sore and strained muscles by providing gentle heat and increasing blood flow, while the targeted sound waves break up scar tissue and deep adhesions.
Manual trigger point therapy decreases and eliminates pain and tension in latent and active trigger points by breaking up muscle knots and increasing blood flow in order to decrease inflammation.
Our transcutaneous microcurrent stimulation therapy reduces muscle spasms and their accompanying pain through low-level electrical signals. It also decreases lactic acid build-up and encourages healthy nerve stimulation.
Our cold laser therapy decreases pain and inflammation and accelerates healing of muscle and joint tissue 25 to 35 percent faster than usual, while helping to rebuild natural nerve function.
