Treatment for serious TMJ. The pain was excruciating but Dr Harkins provided relief and built appliances to prevent grinding and keep the teeth aligned properly. The relief took a while but was very satisfactory. After the first year Swanee did the adjustments and cleaning and she was very effective. She is also extremely helpful, personable, comforting and took great care to get a good fit.

Dr. Harkins is very knowledgeable and an innovador. He definitively thinks out of the box when seeking solutions for his patients. He has a solid professional formation not only as a DDS but as a scientist. His office staff is gentle and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Harkins

I have a severe TMJ Condition. Dr Harkins has served as a light in the darkness through the whole ordeal. I originally had a frozen jaw and muscle pain. No jaw treatment was covered under health insur at the time and only a little under dental. The cost was going to be more than I could pay. Dr Harkins was wonderful! He told me where I could go to get ultrasound safely for really cheap and only did the basic splint that my dental could cover. I quickly recovered 100%! Within a week of getting the all clear from 3 docs, I had a car accident. It dislocated my Ldisc and caused pain on my rt side to. Dr Harkins was wonderful! He was there for me and my family whenever we were scared, confused or i was in so much pain I couldn't stand it. He helped my family understand my condition and how to best help me. He felt like a social worker as well as a doc. I was treated with injections, ultrasound, and splints. Eventually I needed BiLatArthrotomy of TMJs, L disc replaced, R rebuilt. When I moved to Phx, he got me in with one of the other top docs in the country and they set it up so I was used in a study and didn't have to pay. Dr Harkins truly cares! He is brilliant and keeps on top of new info in the field. I trust him completely....

About Hygienist: Jessica was the first person I met when going to see Dr Harkins. She was so polite and so easy to be around, I felt better before I even met the doctor. She was a hygienist and worked the front desk. She made the job look easy, even though I knew it must have been very difficult to juggle the responsibilities. She was always willing to listen and remembered everything I told her. She has stuck in my mind over the years. When I moved back to the area she had gone and the practice was huge! I was a little nervous at first but was quickly put at ease by an entire staff of men and women that were so much like the first. It can't be easy. My experience has been that the more severe the suffering of the patients of a practice, the more rude and self righteous the staff. Dr Harkins' staff reminds me more of a spa experience than a doctors office

I am being treated for TMD, and see both Dr. Harkins and Dr. Maruflu. They are both way above the norm! I recommend them highly.

I am not one to go out of my way to rate anyone or anything; however, the attention devoted to delivering me the most professional service I've ever experienced, is the service given to me by Dr. Harkins, Dr. Gray & the entire staff at Dr. Harkins Office!!! If you need a highly skilled, knowledgeable & very caring dentist, you simply can't go wrong by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Harkins. Without hesitation, I would say Dr. Harkins is TUCSON'S BEST DENTIST, BAR NONE!!! Christopher Scott

I saw Dr. Harkins for a snore guard. I was referred by my wonderful PCP who had one from Dr. Harkins. I am very satisfied with my snore guard. More importantly I am thrilled with the quality of care received from Dr. Harkins, his fellow dentist, and all of his skilled staff. I was treated so well. I had to bring the snore guard in from a brief adjustment and they saw me within minutes of my calling and made the adjustment while I waited. I am most impressed with this practice and would recommend it to anyone needing appliances for sleep issues, tmj and the like. My snoring is over and I will learn more from further work whether my sleep apnea is treated sufficiently. Excellent care and service.

I had a dislocated jaw with a large hematoma (blood clot) impeding the proper repositioning of the jaw. I have had this condition (TMD) around ten years, but this was the wost dislocation I have suffered and indeed, Dr. Harkin commented it was one of the worst he had seen. I arrived at his office after having seen three other dentists/ doctors including Dr. Andrew Weils personal dentist who was only able to give me slight relief within the limits of his practice. And two emergency room visits. Dr. Harkin and his staff completely rehabilitated my jaw.They made special appliances to keep it from happening again. They were the only office out of around eight other offices spanning five states and ten years to offer me a viable solution. They were VERY compassionate and fair.
