Samuel Dworkin
Dr. Samuel Dworkin is a dentist and clinical psychologist. He left general practice in New York City to become a full-time dental teacher / researcher after completing his PhD in Clinical Psychology under an NIH Special Fellowship.

Dr. Dworkin is presently Professor in the Department of Oral Medicine, School of Dentistry, and in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, School of Medicine, at the University of Washington.

Dr. Dworkin has had a distinguished career as a dental educator, researcher, and (licensed) attending clinical psychologist at University Hospital. His clinical and research interests now focus on how pain and non-specific physical symptoms, as well as clinical signs, are related to the emotional and behavioral status of pain patients and the role that biobehaviorally-based treatments may play in chronic pain management.
