Unhappy TMJ specialists in Los Angeles or Orange County

Hi everyone, I would greatly appreciate any recommendations for good TMJ specialists in the Los Angeles area, possibly OC as well. I would like a doctor who avoids surgery and takes a more conservative approach.

I am young, 23 years old, and have been suffering from TMJ for around 2 to 3 years (if I only count from the first acute set of symptoms like headaches and difficulty opening my jaw wide enough to enunciate certain words...) and really really would like to avoid surgery.

So far I've only consulted with one orthodontist who had formal training and some experience with TMJ disorders. He seemed knowledgeable and his prices and payment plan are very reasonable. Considering I don't have insurance or savings... that is definitely something I consider. But I want to really make the right decision and see a doctor who specializes in this and has seen enough cases to know how to cure me, even if that means I need to go into more debt!

Please reply if you have any recommendations!
