The TMJs are unique in that they are considered a "hinge" joint.

I've been seeing Dr. Daniel Han for dental care since 2013 -- he's an extremely talented and caring dentist. Was there at the office a few days ago for a cleaning and check-up, and they are carefully following Covid precautions, I felt comfortable that it was a safe experience.

I fully trust Dr. Han with my dental needs, which have not been insubstantial over the years. For those in search of a new dentist, you will not find a kinder, gentler or more competent dentist than Dr. Han. He’s the best.
