“I am happy to say I no longer wake up in pain every day.”




I can honestly say that my experience with Dr. Kazerooni and her office has changed my life. I have been suffering with TMJ since I was a child and it negatively impacted my life. I used to wake up everyday in severe jaw and neck pain. I have seen countless doctors, each of whom did not know how to fix the problem. Once doctor even told me that I needed jaw surgery.

When I met Dr. Kazerooni I was very apprehensive given all of the procedures I have tried in the past. Instantly, I knew she would be able to help me because she actually listened to my problem. She didn’t assume that because she was a doctor she knew better than me. Instead, she took into consideration everything I said and created an orthotic and patient plan specifically for my problem.

She has been relentless in finding a way to help me and I am happy to say I no longer wake up in pain every day. I would encourage anyone to see Dr. Kazerooni and her team because they are responsive, great listeners and educated on the latest technology and determined for patients to be satisfied with their experience.

I actually look forward to going to see the dentist now!
