Meet the Doctor

Dr. Ney graduated from Highland High School in Fort Thomas, KY in 1965. He attended Centre College and graduated from the University of Kentucky followed by a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) in 1975 from the University of Louisville.

He became interested in temporomandibular joint disorder / temporomandibular joint (TMD/TMJ) headache and neck pain in 1982. Since then, he has centered his learning experiences on the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ/TMD and headache. Dr. Ney is a Fellow of the Academy of Oralfacial Pain, an organization that keeps its members up to date on TMJ/TMD, headache,and neck pain. The membership of the academy is composed of dentists, physicians, psychologists, and physicial Therapists.

He is also a charter member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. The membership include dentists, physicians, psychologists. The academy helps us stay current with sleep as related to pain and dental appliances that manage sleep apnea.

TMD/TMJ headaches and neck and jaw pain involve much more then treating a bad bite. While your bite is important, other areas such as disrupted sleep, weak neck muscles, neck pain, posture, and oral habits should also be considered. (You would be surprised how many people chew their tongue or lip.)

Having a clear understanding of these disciplines is vital to understanding why a patient has pain and knowing what to do about it. Interestingly, most headaches involve Myofascial Pain.

Because he himself suffered from headaches over a period of seven years, Dr. Ney understands the problem both as a patient and as a doctor. This is important because he knows how disrupting the pain can be to a patient’s life, relationships, and job.

On a personal level, Dr. Ney has three sons. Marsh, the oldest, is an MD and doing his residency in physical medicine at Chapel Hill North Carolina. His second son, William, graduated from Transylvania University and computer skills at the Lexington Library and is married to a medical school graduate and resident in psychiatry at the University of Kentucky. Robert, his third son, also graduated from Transylvania University and is at UK getting an accounting degree.

Dr. Ney and his minister began the non-profit Saint Andrews Retirement Community in Richmond, Kentucky in 1990 with a bequest of Stephen F. McCready to First Presbyterian Church in honor of his wife, Isabel Bennett McCready. Since then, St. Andrews has grown into a campus of 75 condominiums, 73 assisted living apartments, and a nursing home with 50 beds. The nursing home is one of only a handful of nursing homes to achieve a 5 Star rating from the state of Kentucky nursing home inspectors.

No matter what his endeavors, Dr. Ney's goal is perfection. In terms of headaches, he simply believes that you deserve to live pain-free!
