Dean Hottel Receives Grant for Tourette Syndrome


Timothy L. Hottel, DDS, MS, MBA, dean of the College of Dentistry at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), will serve as principal investigator for a $340,000 clinical study funded by TicTocStop, Inc. TicTocStop has a mission focused on improving the lives of people with Tourette Syndrome. The study plans to enroll 65 participants (both adults and children) who suffer from either simple or complex tics. Dr. Hottel and his team will fit each participant with a specially modified oral appliance, much like a modified mouth guard for lower teeth. The study will then assess whether the appliance lessens the severity and frequency of the symptoms.
