Patients suffering from Sjogren’s syndrome often visit numerous medical specialists for relief of symptoms they do not realize are caused by a single disease. Once diagnosed with Sjogren’s, a rare and debilitating ailment that causes extreme dryness of tissues throughout the body, patients can receive better-coordinated care.
Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry hosts the Dallas support group for this autoimmune disease, which most commonly strikes women in their late 40s. Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry is also home to one of the leading centers for the diagnosis and treatment of Sjogren’s, the Salivary Dysfunction Clinic and Research Laboratory, part of the Stomatology Center in the Department of Periodontics.
