About TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Cleveland
The TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Cleveland team has crafted a proven system for diagnosing and treating craniofacial pain—pain in the face, joints, ears, neck, and head. Cleveland residents can also seek our help for sleep-related breathing disorders—no surgery required. We help adults get the sleep they need to not just function, but thrive at work and at home, eliminate migraines in patients of all ages, and even solve cases of chronic bedwetting in children. Our singular goal is to improve the lives of our patients using proven methods and state-of-the-art technology.
Dr. Kristina Wolf, MS, DMD
Diplomate, American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine
A little about me… I am a Cleveland native and a mom of two amazing little kids, Kaia and Leo, who are the light of my life. It was actually these two little humans that got me interested and involved in the world of sleep. What further intensified my desire to get involved in the disciplines of sleep and pain was my own struggles and healing journey after suffering with my TMJ and Sleep issues. Oftentimes, I ended up with more questions than answers when seeking help with my own issues. This led me on an intensive dive into the worlds of dental sleep medicine, craniofacial pain, TMJ disorders, as well as, breathwork and breathing techniques, nutrition and supplementation, cardiac coherence, vagal tone, tethered oral tissues, myofunctional therapy, as well as many other modalities.
Beside my practice, I am also a professor at my Alma Mater, Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine, where I teach the sciences including Anatomy, Physiology, and Neuroscience. I received my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) from CWRU, as well as a Masters of Science (MS) in Applied Anatomy. I ADORE teaching and I believe that skill set is what is most important in my practice—teaching my patients about their conditions and educating them on the path to healing and wellness. In addition to dentistry, being a professor and a mom, I also have a passion for fitness and dance. I love to run and be in nature, I enjoy participating in CrossFit, Pilates and Yoga and have recently taken up Latin dancing!! I look forward to working with you and meeting you soon! -Dr. Kristina

about the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Cleveland
Dr. Wolf has provided me with amazing care. My symptoms have nearly completely resolved and she is extremely comprehensive in her treatment. I would highly recommend her to anyone having jaw or sleep issues.
This is the office and staff to go to, for TMJ and or just sleep difficulties. Not only is Dr. K’s knowledge of both areas stellar, but she strives to continually educate herself to provide support and answers for her patients. I so wish I had known about the root of my sleeping problems yrs ago, but I am so thankful I have been under her care now. So many issues have improved and I am grateful.
Dr. Kristina and her team are very knowledgeable and caring professionals. I started with their office due to jaw pain as a result of a sleep disorder. Dr. Kristina uses sophisticated imaging equipment which results in a thorough evaluation and personalized treatment plan. I always appreciate their geniune concern and also their smiles at my office visits! Thank you for making a difference in my health and quality of life!
