My experience with NorCal TMJ was a very positive one! The staff there are very positive and always friendly. It helps make a new patient feel very at ease. Dr. Dina is nothing short of amazing. She listens to all your concerns and I feel really cares about her patients. Over the course of a few weeks I felt substantial improvement in pain and other symptoms. I would recommend her to anyone suffering with TMJ. You won’t be disappointed.

For several years I had been suffering from jaw pain. I visited several dentists and doctors and even went to physical therapy but nothing helped. Finally Kaiser referred me to Dr Dina. Dr Dina explained the problem, recommended a night guard and daily tongue exercises. I’ve been pain free for months now. Thank you, Manjun

I visited several doctors after experiencing TMJ pain. Both dentists and doctors investigated the issue but couldn't identify the cause. Despite my search for a cure, the pain persisted. Eventually, my dentist referred me to Dr. Dina Hammouda, and after her treatment, I am now pain-free and feel much better. I highly recommend Dr. Dina if you are suffering from TMJ pain.

After a year of trying many things (top night guard, physical therapy, acupuncture) to relieve my TMJ, the new mouthguard and gentle chiropractic techniques offered by Dr. Hammouda have worked wonders in just six weeks.

I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Dina for completely relieving and treating me with patience, professionalism, kindness and understanding. I started having a TMJ problem last fall, I had terrible headaches, dizziness, I couldn't eat anything that wasn't ground. Today after just 4 sessions of messages from the "angel" hands of Doctor Dina, I have nothing left and I can eat something other than purees. Dr. Dina is not only very qualified but she is a good pedagogue: she explains your problem clearly and helps you with her valuable advice. My life has really changed. Thanks thanks thanks Dr. Dina. I would also like to add that the office is very welcoming, surrounded by trees and very clean, the staff is nice and professional. I strongly recommend that you do not delay in making an appointment with Doctor Dina if you suffer from TMJ or apnea. With all my gratitude DR. Dina. T. Boumehdi Tomasi
