Recently My jaw locked up I was in lots of pain I went to a Drs clinic found it was not broken or dislocated just painfully locked from TMJ Pills didn’t help I looked for a doctors that advertised TMJ Specialties Most of the TMJ ads were for Drs that told me-I don’t work on jaws. Then I found Dr Gary M Schwarz DDS MSD Dr Schwarz & his staff quickly assess my situation including a 3 degree misalignment of my jaw. & in just 30 minutes using a noninvasive laser treatment they fixed my jaw There was no pain no shot no surgery & yet Dr Schwartz & his professional team were quick to act & it was amazing. I walked in with a crooked severely locked jaw & walked out with a Big Smile If you jaw clicks hurts or like mine locks up save yourself some pain & Some time & call Dr Schwarz & his team at Valley OMS

Highly recommend Dr. Schwarz! I was so nervous going in especially because I was afraid of the anesthesia, but the entire surgery felt like I blinked. Great doctor and awesome staff :)

Removed my wisdom teeth, no issues after the procedure. Would recommend to anyone that needs their wisdom teeth removed. If I require oral surgery in the future, only one choice for me.

There is no oral surgeon better than Dr. Gary Schwarz! He has treated me and my family for years and we have always been thoroughly satisfied with all work performed. Dr. Schwartz technique is as non-invasive as possible, greatly reducing pain and discomfort and making recovery much easier.

The thought of having my molar extracted and needing two wisdom teeth removed terrified me. I had a terrible consultation with Dr. Francisco Perez and decided to go with Dr. Schwartz. I’m so glad I did. He has amazing bedside manners, friendly, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and explained everything I needed to know. I had my procedure this morning and in 8 minutes he was finished and my experience was pain free and he made me feel comfortable and at ease. I highly recommend him to everyone.

I can not brag enough how awesome my 4 wisdom teeth extraction went. Dr. Schwarz is awesome! Didn't feel anything, all 4 were out before I realized it literally. I didn't believe he actually got all 4 out that quickly and painlessly. So pleased.

I had an excellent experience!! I am very happy and lucky to have been recommended to Dr. Schwarz. I had two wisdom teeth removed and the whole procedure was practically painless. I had no swelling, a pain scale of one or less, and everyone I told my experience to could not believe it. Dr. Schwarz made me feel comfortable before the procedure and he was right. The nurses were also very nice. They explained everything in detail and I can see that they love what they do.

A master at his craft is all that comes to mind. Very respectful,knowledgeable, customer focus ,mindful and from only having met with him for all of 5 minutes. DR Schwarz made me feel at ease and comfortable, his staff was equally as inviting and knowledgeable. His nurses on staff are so kind and I am ever appreciative of their level of care.

One of my favorite doctors ever! Dr. Schwarz reconstructed my upper and lower jaw, and did a beautiful job! The staff is very friendly and they are always willing to help in any way possible. I always refer friends and family to him when it comes to wisdom teeth extractions, jaw surgery, or any oral surgical care. I would definitely recommend Dr. Schwarz! -Nadia Gomez, Miss RGV 2016

Went in to talk about jaw surgery and felt so comfortable with Dr. Schwarz and ended up getting my wisdom teeth extracted. I have been terrified of dentists all my life but after meeting him I felt at ease. His work was amazing! I've heard so many stories of people being out of commission for so long after having wisdom teeth out but this was not my experience at all. I wasn't swollen or in pain at all after my procedure and I'm healing quite nicely a week after. I'm recommending him to everyone
