"I enjoyed the practice, nice place, great dentist and hygienist. My only problem with them is they looked into my insurance before my appointment and quoted me a certain price. When I went to check out my cost was double. They said they assumed I had the premium dental insurance. Not a big deal, the treatment I received was great, just a little disappointed that they assumed anything. To pay double makes a big difference."- H.S. / Google / Nov 12, 2020
"First - Start Smiling Dentistry (Drs. Sayeg and Hahn) took over the practice of Dr. Paul Isler, who was my dentist for more than 40 years until he retired several months ago. My first experience with Start Smiling was having a painful rear molar with a long-ago crown extracted- the procedure was well done and healed quickly. This afternoon I visited Start Smiling Dental for a routine 3x/year dental hygiene. My hygienist, who I met for the first time, was Tanya - she did a careful and thorough cleaning of my 87-year-old teeth. So far I couldn't be more pleased with this practice and I highly recommend them"- M.H. / Google / Oct 21, 2020

How Can Botox Help?
The temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) is located on both sides of your head at the point where the jawbone meets your skull and is used during talking, eating, swallowing, and other everyday activities. If this joint becomes overworked through excessive teeth grinding, you may suffer severe headaches, as well as sharp pain in your jaw areas. BOTOX® relieves jaw tension by making muscles unable to engage in the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain.
The BOTOX® alternative treatment for TMJ disorders and jaw tension is usually quick, easy and effective. The procedue takes about 30 minutes in our office and most patients have noticeable improvement within two days to a week after wards.
The amount of Botox needed for TMJ treatment can vary due to each patients needs. Give us a call at 404-255-6782 for a free consultation to see how Botox could help you!
