"I developed TMJ in March this year which was honestly the worst medical condition I have ever suffered with. The pain was unbearable, I couldn’t eat or sleep and it was having a huge impact on my life. I decided to see an expert and met with Dr Aria, who diagnosed TMJ and set out a treatment plan which was laser treatment.
I visited Dr Aria and team periodically for treatment and there was a dramatic improvement after just the first session and after completing treatment I now suffer from no pain.
I cannot thank Dr Aria and team enough - I have my life back!"
