Do not go to this man for any type of TMJ treatment. I have written a scathing review of him before that whenDrPerkins saw it asked me to take it down. I first said no then he offered me half of my money back for first phase of his treatment. Summary: He advertises his “special phase treatment”. I was diagnosed 30 rears ago at UCLA and a silastic implant was put in my jaw. He was made WELL aware of this but said he could do it and then proceeded to have me sign all sorts of papers re:liability. I am in now in severe daily pain from the filing he did to “balance” my jaw. He continued to file my bottom veneers never noticing he had exposed my teeth. Just yesterday I found out that those veneers need to be replaced! Dr Perkins manipulation of his reviews shows he is only interested in how he and other COSMETIC cases turn out and he can show them off in his office and website. I have had three different evaluations since seeing Perkins and ALL three stated they knew exactly who I was talking about and would never refer to him. It would be very interesting to find out how many other reviews “were taken down”! I am reposting this again because I now have to pay for the damage his constant filing did to my teeth and bite. His “solution” was always “if the bite is correct the jaw will go into place with just the very costly second phase of his treatment”. Luckily I never had that done because of what he did in the first “phase” This person needs to NOT treat TMJ and needs to get a better understanding of the constant pain and limitations TMJ patients live with. We usually are NOT there for a pretty smile! If you are living with pain and are looking for some relief from a TMJ specialist PLEASE try somebody different. I will not take this review down again. Especially as I go to pay for new bottom veneers. I will also report to google any type of contact from him to try and remove these FACTS..
Dr. David Sturgeon is the best dentist I've ever been treated by. He truly cares about his patient's well-being & comfort. His work is thorough and accurate. There is so much distress around dentistry and it's completely withdrawn when you're in the care of a dentist who doesn't treat you like another number on their checklist. Always open, more than willing to discuss your concerns & questions, and admiral bedside manner. A true example of what a Dentist should be!.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS! Dishonest, barbaric, decades-outdated dentistry at exorbitant prices! - Stole $3365 from me, which they REFUSED to refund. I now need $6000-$9000 in urgent dental work! - Removed intact crown without my informed consent (costing me $2000 to replace elsewhere). - Lied on my dental records to cover-up the above. - Recommended a COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY $2000 root canal!.
Dr. Hirsch and his staff deserve infinity stars!!! I was filling out my new patient forms but had a cough. I didn't want to anyone to look at me with thoughts of the movie "Contagion" or "Outbreak." So I took the clipboard and filled out my paperwork outside the office in the hallway. Dr. Hirsch passed by and inquired why I chose to fill my paperwork in the hallway and I explained to him I didn't want to alarm anyone with my cough. That was the first time I met Dr. Hirsch. I was so pleasantly surprised to meet someone so friendly! He offered his office across the dental office to sit down and complete my forms. Dr. Hirsch and his entire staff are extremely friendly. If you are one that is uneasy going to the dentist you need to come see him. They give off such a warm, inviting and easygoing vibe. They are very accommodating to your schedule. You just need to go in already and see him. You will laugh and say to yourself, "Wow. That guy REALLY is friendly.".
If you suffer from TMJ more accurately, TMJD, Dr. Perkins is the best. It took me two years to finally find an affordable solution that works. I couldn't sleep, eat and speak without pain or difficulty. I must have spent close to 2000 dollars on treatments and "consultations" from every TMJD pain specialist in LA. I even tried botox into the muscles. I had one friend in Florida who was suffering just like me who ended up getting surgery for full jaw reconstruction... I didn't want to do that!! After my first visit to Smiles in Malibu, my TMJD felt 75 percent better within 30 minutes. It was so obvious that this dentist understands the neuromuscular and occlusion issues. Other dentists and "specialists" don't know the things he knows about the TMJ. My jaw was a disaster and I was on the verge of giving up all hope. After just a few visits with Dr. Perkin's focus on my jaw issue, he was able to alleviate all my pain. I am in the final stages of treatment and recommend him to all my friends with TMJD/TMJ. It's also a beautiful drive up the coast to his office and an even better drive home without the JAW PAIN!.
I drove out to Malibu to meet Dr. Perkins and was truly amazed at how quickly he was able to align my bite,. He worked with composite material to buildup my molars resulting in a BRAND NEW BITE & he relieved the constant ache/pain that I have had in my TMJ for almost 10 years. His talent far surpasses any Dentist I have ever experienced~He was able to do 4 fillings in 15 minutes that removed ALLof my pain and sensitivity (all without anesthesia). After seeing many other Dentists & spending a lot of un necessary money, I finally found the place I now hope to call my "Dental Nest" in all my years to come. I want to share him internationally and would say it's worth the travels to get to him...He is a miracle working Dentist & an absolute Genius..
