There's a better way to treat chronic migraines and headaches

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.

Uncover the hidden causes of your chronic pain

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. Julia Gildon

I’m Julia, and originally from Wilmot, AR.  I went to the University of Arkansas and received my BS in Microbiology.  I then attended Louisiana State University obtaining my DDS degree.  Since graduating from dental school, I’ve been fortunate to practice in several very successful dental offices.  I feel that my experience allows me to serve patients with the utmost care.  I feel like I incorporate the best of it all into your visit at our office.  We want to get to know you and build long term relationships in order to provide the optimum treatment needed to our patients.  Too many times in the past 10 plus years have I heard and witnessed how much people hate going to the dentist.  My daily goal is to create an atmosphere that is comfortable, fun and personal.

On a personal note, I am married to my most of the time best friend, Cody.  He takes such good care of us, so that I can take care of my patients.  He is an awesome baseball coach…check him out at  We have three wonderful kids, Tully, Lindy, and Jolee.  They keep us grounded and entertained.  Tully is into trivia and sports.  I quit trying to outsmart him years ago.  Lindy is a theatrical tumbler.  What does that mean?  I will update as I find out.  Jolee is head strong and imaginative.  I’m excited and scared all at the same time!  The one thing that we all have in common is that we root for the Hogs, regardless of the season!

We have three dogs:  Brody (Weimaraner) will bark for hours until you let him inside;  ask our neighbors.  Once he is inside, he will never leave your side.  Shooter (Weimaraner) is extremely handsome and will only politely take food off of the children’s plate;  we call him Don Weim.  Sparkle Shimmer Shine Gildon (Catahoula), named by my oldest daughter, will break any and every rule, but you will love her anyway.  When she gets loose and runs down the street, I love to hear my husband yelling ‘Sparkles, come back.’

Conclusion, there is a lot of craziness in my life, but I wouldn’t change a thing.  I work with some great people that truly care about our patients and are fun to be around.  Everyone on our team is someone that I would trust with my family.  I’m in a very fortunate position to get to choose who I spend my day with, and I hit the jackpot!  From the moment you walk in the door and meet Carlie, until Gwen walks you out…you will understand why I want our office to be your dental home.

    The TruDenta Process

    Bite Force Analysis Icon showing mouth and teeth

    Bite Force Analysis

    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.
    Range of Motion Analysis Icon showing neck with arrows

    Range of Motion Analysis

    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.
    Headache History Form Icon showing persons head with pain lines above

    Headache History Form

    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.
    Muscle Exam Icon showing barbell

    Muscle Exam

    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.
    Head Health Questionnaire Icon showing papers and pencil

    Head Health Questionaire

    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.
    Ultrasound Icon showing air waves


    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.
    Trigger Point Therapy Icon showing fingers and trigger point

    Trigger Point Therapy

    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.
    Electrocurrent Icon showing tower with waves coming out


    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.
    Low-Level Laser Icon showing laser working

    Low-Level Laser

    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.
