World Class Dentistry – I had some very questionable dentistry done to me by another dentist and Dr. Gorman was able to fix all of my considerable problems with full implants for my upper teeth. His work was perfect and now my teeth look better than they ever looked in my life. I can eat anything and I feel confident when I smile. When I tell people about what my situation was, and how Dr. Gorman saved my smile, they find it hard to believe that a person with such perfect teeth was not always that way. His empathy and dedication, and the dedication of his staff are something that is rarely encountered in the world today; a world class dentist in a world class office. Thanks Dr. Gorman.
Horrible – 1. He charged me a whopping $500 for a diagnostic cast (going price from $30 to $120). He also was trying to sell me a ton of dental work, saying that i have TMJ ( i dont' have it) and i need a bunch of crowns and veneers to treat it. He was pushing over $1000 worth of extra teeth cleaning on me.
2. He is very obnoxious , pushy , full of himself , and a borderline rude person.
3. I looked up his dental license here www.dbc.ca.gov/verification/license_verification.shtml and found out that his license was revoked and he was given 5 years of probation for insurance fraud and lousy failed work he performed on some of his patients. You can read the descriptions of his case on that site.
4. I don't know why he was given his license back because he is nothing but a liar and a money- grubbing scammer.
Hands down the best dentist in the Valley! – I have seen a gamut of dentists over the years and NEVER have I been as informed and healthy (Pain-free) as I am now at Dr. Gorman's office! Prior to Sanda (Hygienist), my former dentists used to do my cleanings. I would literally be in and out of those visits in a matter of 30 min. I now actually look forward to my thorough, hour-long hygiene visits. I had no clue about the link between our oral health to our overall health and how we can risk develop serious illnesses if we do not take good care of our teeth and gums! After learning this information, I have become OCD about brushing and flossing my teeth and have made all my friends the same way. Not to mention that I never knew that I was a "Clencher" and that what seemed to be "life-long headaches" of mine were actually caused by clenching of my teeth- which apparently results from stress. Long story short, hands down the best dentist in the Valley! I never thought I would be rambling on about a dentist on here, but I will assure you, Dr. Gorman's office is not your typical dental office. I actually have fun going there and would recommend him highly.
Got Rid of My Headaches! – Dr. Gorman used a thorough and comprehensive approach to diagnose and treat my TMJ and related headaches. I haven't had a problem since his treatment! He works with a friendly and dedicated staff, making it an easy dental experience.
Knowledgeable, comfortable and friendly! – The best teeth cleaning ever! Sanda is gentle, yet I always leave the office with my mouth feeling so clean and fresh. Dr. Gorman always thoroughly explains what's going on in my mouth, as well as the "best for me" treatment plan. It's an inviting office, with a super friendly staff!
HORRIFIC DENTAL EXPERIENCE – I suffer extensively from the failed dental work I agreed to after a consultation with Dr. Martin Gorman. I was NEVER informed by the Dental Board nor by Dr. Martin N Gorman that he was under investigation and later licensed with an imposed probation for 5 yrs when he convinced me to agree to his treatment plan. I stayed with him for over a decade and he NEVER informed me during all those years. That decision leaves me suffering for life with the worst experience in dental treatment I could have ever imagined.
T M J disorders – From my first meeting with Dr. Gorman I had no doubt I would be satisfied with the results. I was impressed with Dr. Gorman’s obvious knowledge and training in TMJ and the office was equipped with the most technologically advanced equipment. What I later learned is that Dr. Gorman’s greatest asset is not his education or state of the art equipment but his vast bank of personal experience from past TMJ patients, which he draws from to treat current patients. His experience enables him to successfully treat TMJ patients who fall outside the typical case, making him a true expert in the field. I have also been completely satisfied with the treatment process itself. Dr. Gorman’s staff is friendly and personable making the monthly appointments enjoyable. The atmosphere in the office is comfortable, relaxing, and pleasant. I recommend Dr. Gorman without any reservations.

I was diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and attempted to use the C-PAP machine for several months and not simply could not tolerate it. After trying available products I decided that there must be a more comfortable and better way to reliably keep from sleeping on my back. Dr. Gorman offered a truly unique solution. He recommended a mouthpiece appliance that I could wear at night. Since I began wearing the mouthpiece I have experienced dramatic improvement on all of my problems. As time passes we tend to forget the bad and remember the good, but were you to ask my wife she could tell you about the sleepless nights due to my snoring and the worry she had when I momentarily stopped breathing. Most of the problems seem to be behind me and are at least manageable. The intermittent breathing problems are gone along with the associated daytime fatigue. In summary, I am well pleased with the dedicated care and genuine concern exhibited by you and your capable staff. Most of all I am happy to understand those problems previously mentioned and to know that you are available to help me work through them. Dr. Gorman, please feel free to quote me to your other patients or use this letter on your web site, as I am extremely pleased with your care and advice

“For the first time in over twenty years, I am comfortable being in family pictures. Before, I always volunteered to be the photographer because I was so embarrassed about my teeth. Now, my smile looks so great everyone I meet thinks it’s natural! Thanks, Dr. Gorman!”
Thanks to Dr. Gorman and his amazing staff, finally making the decision to re-do my smile was one of the best I’ve ever made. Right from the initial consultation to the day I walked out with my new smile, his attention to detail, and his consideration for my concerns was far above any level I had expected. I cannot say enough about his office, as everything that was important to me, became important to them as well. I’m thrilled with the results, and cannot tell you the number of compliments I’ve received as I now smile all the time! If you’re thinking about making such a decision, look no further for than Dr. Gorman.
