The AACP created the Haden-Stack Award in 1998 to honor Dr. Jack Haden and Dr. Brendan Stacks, who have made significant contributions to the advancement of knowledge and clinical practice in the field of Craniofacial Pain (CFP) and Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD).

“[Dr. Moses] exemplifies unselfish desire to educate others and has shown exemplary and extraordinary contributions to the advancement of knowledge and clinical practice in the diagnosis and treatment of CFP and TMD,” said Dr. H. Clifton Simmons III, AACP past president and previous Haden-Stack Award recipient.

Dr. Moses has a dental practice located in the Willis/Sears Tower in Chicago. His primary endeavor is the delivery of high quality, comprehensive general dentistry.

He holds a faculty appointment as an assistant professor at Rush University College of Medicine in the Department of Sleep Disorders and is the dental consultant in the Department of Sleep Disorders/Neurology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital Medical School where he teaches, does research and designs oral appliances.
