    Thank you. Hope this settles with time.

    Andrew Sidebottom takes the time to explain things and I can highly recommend him, I had TMJ surgery and Botox and I can say it has given me a large quality of life improvement and changed my outlook on daily living, he identified my issue quickly and the treatment I would need which is something that NHS was unwilling to do or hear me out with. Overall great experience.
