TESTIMONIALS

I am very thankful to Dr. Shwartzman for the beautiful smile she has given me. She has helped to change many aspects of my life. I am able to smile with confidence and I am no longer suffering with headaches, back, neck and jaw pain. I had tried everything over the years to alleviate the pain and discomfort I was suffering from. I did conventional braces at thirty five years old thinking that would correct some of the issues. The braces did straighten what needed to be straightened but, I was still having pain. I knew the treatment I needed was to have neuromuscular dentistry and full mouth reconstruction. I have watched many patients complete this treatment over the years and they have all had great success. The time came for me and I talked to Dr. Shwartzman about the treatment. She did not hesitate to get started. My treatment was completed beyond my expectations and it is truly the best thing I have ever done for myself."

ABOUT THIS CASE

Comments from the treating doctor

A full neuromuscular mock up was performed to determine the ideal position of the lower jaw and alleviate symptoms of an unbalanced bite. Symptoms included headaches, back, neck and jaw pain. Once the relationship between the upper and lower jaws was stabilized and the symptoms were alleviated, crowns were placed on all teeth to create a full beautiful and functioning smile.

TESTIMONIALS

As a teenager I was always self conscious about my teeth and would barely smile. I grew up with a fear of the dentist and would only go if absolutely necessary, so braces were out of the question. In school I was taunted about my teeth because I had an extreme overbite and a space between my teeth. My lack of smiling caused people to view me as unfriendly and I was perceived as so. The fact that I was insecure about my teeth caused me to talk as least as possible because that would mean I would have to open my mouth. I always said if I could fix one thing about myself it would be my teeth in a heartbeat. When I learned about invisalign in my mid twenties I knew this would be the perfect solution. I could never picture myself with metal brackets on my teeth or the discomfort associated with it. The day I got invisalign I was extremely excited because I saw what the end results would be on the clin check and could not wait to get started. I was shocked at how easy and manageable the treatment was. No one could tell I had them on, even though I told everyone because I was so proud that I was finally getting my teeth fixed. Once I was finished I couldn't believe I had the smile I always envied and dreamed about. Now people always tell me how beautiful my smile is and I have to think about it before I say thank you because I am not used to hearing it. Since finishing the treatment I have become much more outgoing and social and I can smile without being self conscious."

TESTIMONIALS

I had no reservation what so ever. I was confident enough that my expectations would be met because of my positive experience with Dr. Ronkin. Honestly, when I first sat with Dr. Ronkin, my one and only fear was if it was going to be all worth it.

I would definitely recommend Dream Smile to others. I have told many of my friends and continue to tell people about the amazing job that you guys do.

I am so happy! It's hard to believe the difference that a confident smile can make in the way that one interacts with others.

Just yesterday, I remembered stopping for a second to talk with a friend at the gym and when I smiled, my fist instinct was to cover my teeth with my hands like I used to do before. I instantly remembered that I don't have the same smile as I used to. Dr. Ronkin and his staff have changed my smile and turned me into a more confident individual. When I smile now, people look at my teeth and give me compliments.

It's amazing how much a little bit of my savings and a great dentist like Dr. Ronkin and his staff can do to change your life.

Thank you for everything! You guys are the best!"

TESTIMONIALS

For as far back as I can remember, I was always unhappy with my smile. I am a happy person who loves to smile, so it was hard for me to remember to keep my mouth closed so that my teeth would not show. Being so self-conscious about my smile made it uncomfortable for me to meet new people, or to feel at ease speaking in front of people. When I made the decision to do something about this, I did not do it lightly. And now that I have done it, my only regret is that I did not do it years earlier!

Dr. Shwartzman at Dream Smile Dental has given me a new smile, and it is beautiful (I can't take credit for it, since she did all the work, but it is my smile after all!). Since having the work done, I am much more self-confident and outgoing with new people I meet at work or in social situations. I feel that I'm now able to be more myself, and it is very freeing to not feel self-conscious. At least, not about my teeth.... ;)"

TESTIMONIALS

My main symptom was tooth sensitivity. Also, my teeth were off balance, the color wasn't good. I had a previous root canal, and some gold caps that needed to be repaired."

I came to Dream Smile and found them to be excellent people, just terrific... They brought me in very comfortably. The appointment was great, they provided insurance help, and communication about what I needed to do. I felt good about it.

Military experience had kept me away from the dentist and they walked me through it and as you can tell, I can smile now. Their customer service is terrific, the staff, hygienists, the doctors. I'm extremely happy.

The sensitivity is gone, my smile is nice, I feel comfortable going out and I feel like I look good now.

TESTIMONIALS

For as long as I can remember I was self-conscious of my teeth; so much to the point that I never felt comfortable with a full smile on my face. I found Dream Smile Dental, who's knowledgeable staff, walked me through a series of teeth and smile improvement options without any unwanted commitment pressure. Like any major appearance change I certainly had reservations. All of which, were soon overcome by success stories (such as this testimonial) and my drive for a perfect smile. The staff at Dream Smile Dental not only recommended the best dental improvement option for me, they also reassured me that it would be everything I have always wanted and more...and wow was it ever! Every single person at Dream Smile Dental seems to go above and beyond in creating a welcoming, friendly and patient-first environment that I have never found at other dental practices. To say the least, I am extremely happy with the continued first-class service I receive at Dream Smile Dental and I will continue to openly recommend them to all of my family and friends."

TESTIMONIALS

We both were getting married January 8th, 2011 and thought what better time to perfect our smiles. We decided on Invisalign as an excellent solution (its removable!). I (Josh) also had some bridge work removed on my front teeth and replaced with veneers- MUCH BETTER! They look much more natural. THANKS FOR PERFECTING OUR SMILES!"

Joshua and Jennifer from Bridgewater

ABOUT THIS CASE

Comments from the treating doctor

Josh had Britesmile In-office professional whitening to achieve his natural whitest shade, and an old bridge on the front upper teeth was replaced with a new one that made the smile look more natural. The last step was a short course of Invisalign just to even out the crowded teeth and finalize a great aesthetic result. Jennifer also had teeth crowding which was caused by narrow arches. She had orthodontic treatment when she was younger, but because the arches weren't expanded enough, she had relapse (teeth shifted back toward their old position) and required Invisalign treatment to correct the problem.

ABOUT THIS CASE

Comments from the treating doctor

This patient was apprehensive to do any dental work due to dental anxiety and held off doing any treatment for many years. Sedation dentistry was the ideal option for this patient. We were able to do a lot more at one time than we would have, were it not for sedation. Crowns and a bridge were used to restore chipped teeth leaving the patient with a straighter and an aesthetically pleasing smile.

Tatiana Larina, a 26 year old Russian flute player was concerned with her smile especially when performing on stage in front of a full audience. She longed for the smile that Hollywood actors show off on the red carpet.

I knew I wanted to go through with the Invisalign treatment, but was concerned with it getting in the way of my flute playing. Dr. Ronkin assured me that it would not interfere and showed me the thin plastic aligner I would be wearing. I was eager to proceed with treatment once I saw that on my teeth, it's really invisible!"

TESTIMONIALS

Chronic jaw pain led me to Dream Smile Dental and Dr. Ronkin. The pain was so intense that it had become the focus of my daily life. Dr. Ronkin performed computerized diagnostic tests that helped him determine the source of my pain, an unbalanced bite. Part of my problem was that my upper teeth were small and did not meet my lower teeth.

Neuromuscular treatments with a tensing unit relaxed the muscles in my jaw and gave my jaw the ability to reposition to a bite that was balanced. I wore an orthotic device inside my mouth to maintain the balanced position of my bite and stabilize the jaw muscles. This also relieved the daily pain I had been experiencing.

Within less than a month, Dr. Ronkin was able to correct my bite by restoring my upper teeth and allowing them to meet my lower teeth. My front teeth were restored with porcelain veneers. The change in their appearance was dramatic. My lower teeth were then straightened with Invisalign braces, giving me a beautiful, pain-free smile.

In my youth, my teeth did not remain straight even with braces. I had always envied those with a beautiful smile. Now my search to become pain and headache-free has led me to a beautiful white smile with straight teeth!"

I Found A Cure For TMJ

I have suffered from TMJ for my entire life.

If you don't know what that is - count yourself as one of the lucky ones.

TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint - which is the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull. The joint is right in front of your ear on each side of your head. As far as joints go, this one is pretty darn important because it allows your jaw to move up and down, side to side and allows you to talk, chew, yawn, sing, kiss; basically anything you do with your mouth utilizes the TMJ.

So here's where the problem comes in. You can easily torque that little joint and cause yourself all kinds of health headaches, literally. So how do you torque your TMJ? A lot of ways:

  • Grinding your teeth.
  • Clenching your teeth.
  • Dislocating the disc on your jaw joint.
  • Arthritis
  • Off-balance bite
  • Stress

I basically suffer from the triple whammy of grinding my teeth at night, clenching my jaw and stress. When you have TMJ you feel pain in your face, your jaw, your neck and shoulders, in and around your ear. You can't open your mouth very wide without a ton of pain. Your jaw can even get "stuck" in a position - which is down right scary. It's like your joint just pops out of place. And then, there's the clicking, popping, grating, snapping sound that your face makes when you chew. There's a whole long list of other things you can feel, but luckily I cured mine before he hearing problems, dizziness and tooth aches happened.

I've suffered from TMJ from the age of 21 until 45. I was first diagnosed when I had my wisdom teeth removed. The dentist promptly made me a mouth guard and told me I had to sleep with it ever night to prevent myself from grinding my teeth while I was sleeping. That was the first of about a dozen "bite guards" I've been fitted for over the years. The process was always the same: the dentist would take an impression of my teeth with some type of putty. I'd come back two weeks later and have the device inserted in my mouth.

By the time I hit 30, another doctor told me I should consider surgery because I had developed Arthritis in the joint. So I had arthroscopic surgery on the TMJ to smooth out some of the tears and make the joint work better. That doctor also gave me a new, bite guard.

And so the saga goes. Within a year, I was full of pain in the TMJ again. I decided that the pops, clicks and pain in my jaw were just something I would have to live with; that is, until I met the dentists at Dream Smile Dental.

No joke, he's cured my TMJ. He may not be able to say that legally, but I can. That's how I feel. I feel that I've been cured.

The dentists at Dream Smile practice Neuromuscular Dentistry and use modern technology to assess your teeth, muscles and joints to figure out a natural balanced position of your jaw and restore it to its optimal, pain-free position. They use a computer-assisted evaluation system to measure your jaw and neck muscle movement. What's that mean? Basically you relax in a chair, while the dentists use electrical muscle stimulation machines to relax your muscles. If you've ever been to physical therapy, you've likely experienced this therapy - of putting discs on your body and having a small pulse of electrical stimulation sent to the muscle that's injured. After about an hour, your face, neck, back and shoulders are completely relaxed and now using the computer imaging, they can determine the natural, balanced and optimal position that your jaw should rest at. Once they have your ideal jaw position, now they can make a bite guard that works. It works because when you put it in, your jaw is immediately moved into its optimal resting position.

I cannot tell you just how magical this experience has been. Putting my Dream Smile Dental-made bite guard in causes my face to immediately relax. The joint just melts knowing it doesn't have to work so hard any more. The headaches, crunching, clicking, popping and pain are gone.

After 24 years of suffering, I can say that those TMJ days are behind me thanks to Dream Smile Dental. Mel Robbins

TESTIMONIALS

RON PEGGURI of Weymouth works as an electrician at Gillette. For years, his migraines affected his work and leisure, often causing nausea. "The dentist cured my headaches! What do headaches have to do with teeth? Over the years, my teeth had worn down from normal use and from grinding in my sleep, causing misalignment of my jaw. That caused TMJ, resulting in incredible migraines and jaw soreness. My teeth were chipping and getting thin. Dr. Shwartzman used an electronic pulsed muscle relaxer and made precise measurements to see how my teeth should properly close. Within a day of getting my new crowns, I was freed from the daily pain. In addition, people say I look younger. And I smile more. Dream Smile provided modern dentistry with old-fashioned patient care. It really wasn't like going to the dentist."

TESTIMONIALS

All of my life, the financial needs of my children and my business took precedence over my own personal desires. One of these was to improve the appearance of my smile. Once my children were grown and my business had sold, I decided that it was time to do something special just for me.

Over the years, my teeth became worn from grinding during my sleep and I had developed periodontal disease. I began to research my options with dentists who could aesthetically enhance my smile while addressing the dental health issues that had affected my teeth and gums. This led me to the office of Dream Smile Dental and Dr. Ronkin.

During the initial phase of my treatment, my periodontal condition was addressed through a deep-cleaning procedure. Next, a computerized diagnostic test determined that my night grinding condition was caused by an unbalanced bite. Treatments began using a neuromuscular TENS unit to relax the muscles in my jaw and give the upper and lower arches of my teeth the chance to reposition to a corrected bite. During this time, I wore and orthotic device that helped maintain the proper bite and assist in opening it to an optimum position.

Once my bite was stabilized to its corrected position, 20 porcelain veneers were placed on both the upper and lower front teeth. This phase of the treatment plan was completed in only two office visits. My dental health and the appearance of my smile changed dramatically in only eight weeks. This is by far the best gift that I have ever given to me!"

I had headaches, tension in the jaw, tooth pain from grinding and pressure in the jaw.

The procedures that Dr. Ronkin performed, helped alleviate my headaches Because my bite has been adjusted, there's hardly any pressure in my ears and jaw.

They took away my headaches. I wake up in the morning and feel much better. I feel more alert and refreshed because I've had a good night's rest, where as before I had the headaches. They are a phenomenal group and if you have something similar to my case, don't discount that it may be dental.

Before I came to dream smile I had a hard time smiling or being around people who had beautiful teeth and now I feel more confident and I love to smile.

The staff are unbelievable, they're very accommodating. When I come here I feel like I'm at a spa. You walk in here, you feel great... have a cappuccino...watch a movie..it's great!"

TESTIMONIALS

Before I started working for Dr Shwartzman, I had been seeing a physical therapist two to three times a week for severe right shoulder pain, which sometimes would be so bad, that my arm & fingers would go totally numb. I had seen many doctors, had an MRI, and radiographs; yet no one could figure out what the problem was. One night, Dr Shwartzman explained to me that my problem didn't stem from my shoulder, but rather from my TMJ and because my bite was so out of alignment, it was causing the discomfort in my shoulder. Although I had been educated on the correlations between the mouth and overall systemic health, I was reluctant to believe it when I was the patient.

Dr. Shwartzman made me a device, called a non-removable orthotic. The pain I had been dealing with for the past SIX YEARS was eliminated after the first day of wearing it. I was blown away!! I couldn't believe it!! I told my physical therapist, who was ecstatic and notified my physician (who, amazingly, didn't believe I was actually cured!) After a series of scans and adjustments (which spanned over a years' time), and restorative work to align my bite into it's appropriate place, not only am I pain free, but I cannot thank Dr Shwartzman for the amazing aesthetic results! You can look in my mouth & just see her passion & care show through for what she does. Had it not been for Dr. Shwartzman, I can honestly say I don't know where I would be presently, as the pain was getting worse by the day. I cannot thank Dr. Shwartzman enough. I have to say that I LOVE smiling now, and look for any reason to do so."

TESTIMONIALS

I began my journey to better oral health and a much improved smile 2 years ago. It was a BIG step for me because I feared the dentist office and was wracked with anxiety. The entire Dream Smile office staff and doctors were so understanding and empathetic to my fears. I was provided sedation dentistry my first visit, but did not need it for any of the other treatments solely due to how at ease the staff put me.

My new smile is something that has also had a very positive impact on my professional career as well. I work for a major financial institution in Boston as a vice president and first impressions are very important when establishing relationships and gaining an initial respect. A great smile adds confidence too! I am constantly receiving comments about my nice smile. I work hard to maintain a muscular body and now feel my smile complexes the look."

ABOUT THIS CASE

Comments from the treating doctor

Sedation dentistry was the ideal option for this patient due to dental anxiety. Crowns, veneers and onlays were used to change the shape, size and color of the patient's smile. The patient was also diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. A neuromuscular evaluation was performed in order to pinpoint the exact position of the jaw at which the patient's airway was most open. A nighttime appliance called the Somnodent was made to fit that exact position so when the patient goes to sleep, he can insert the appliance and sleep with the airway expanded to the normal width in order to get more oxygen to the brain and heart as well as enjoy a well rested sleep. Now, the patient no longer requires sedation for dental work. His dental anxiety has been significantly mitigated and we're happy to see him consistently for his regular check-ups.

Front desk people were awesome as usual. Courtney the hygienist is always great too. Pushed me to go have something on my lip looked at which proved to be pre cancer that needs to be removed.

Dr. Barton was great with my son. He let him "play" with some of the instruments before actually using them so that made my son feel more comfortable. My son, at age three, loves going to the dentist and hopefully this will continue.

CC 11-7-12

Courtney Wager was excellent......she had a thorough understanding of my Son's needs. She also advised me to seek a total diagnosis with an ENT doctor. She was looking at the whole condition (tongue-thrust swallow) not just her speciality. Great experience over all!

My visit, from start to the end, was great. When I do have the work done on my tooth, I would prefer the dentist that was on duty that day, as he took the time to explain things to me about the tooth. Also, special thanks to the girls behind the desk who were patient and extremely nice as my Delta Dental Plan was being determined.

Staff is always friendly, efficient and highly skilled. Although the idea of "going to the dentist" is not something I look forward to, DreamSmile Dental makes it a positive end result.

I think Courtney is a great dental hygenist. She has alot of energy, does a great job, and knows her stuff.

My appointment was at 4:30, I was running late due to traffic. I called and I believe her name was Jeannine. She was great. She reassured me that my late arrival was not an inconvenience for anyone! The administrative assistant at desk, was also very kind and polite. Excellent, flexible with appointments Thanks so, so much. What a great team! Thank you!

Dr. Ronkin is a tremendous asset. He is very helpful. Courtney is a terrific hygenist. I think the world of her and am graeful for the care she provides.

Everybody was great from front desk people to Sandy, Courtney, and, of course, Dr. Shwartzman. Considering a year ago I was totally dental phobic, I can't believe how comfortable everybody has made me feel. Lucky to have such great workers.
