I was referred to Dr. Bell by my periodontist. My periodontist did not trust his patients with any other surgeon for jaw surgery except Dr. Bell. Dr. Bell is kind, meticulous, and extremely knowledgeable in his specialty. He has been doing jaw surgeries for 20+ years. He previously worked for Kaiser but now has his own practice in Newport Beach. More than half of Dr. Bell’s cases are patients who come to him for a revision due to a previous jaw surgery gone wrong. I consulted with Dr. Bell and he individualized my surgical plan, revising it over several months until it was the best fit for me. Safety is always Dr. Bells #1 concern for his patients. After my surgery, Dr. Bell followed up with me like a hawk, making sure my healing was on track. I was amazed I had zero black, blue, or maroon bruising from the surgery. Having jaw surgery by Dr. Bell has changed my life. I had sleep obstructive apnea for 30+ years due to a recessed lower jaw and small airway. One of the first things I noticed immediately when I woke up was how much air came through my airway when I inhaled. For the first time in my life, I don’t snore anymore. I sleep through the night without being interrupted by sleep apnea. I’m finally getting the sleep my body needs to recover. I no longer have to take daytime naps because I now feel well-rested when I wake up. I am coming up on 9 weeks post-op, and things are on track thus far. I am confident that recovery will continue to go well under Dr. Bell’s care. If you’re reading this review and are contemplating having jaw surgery for medical and, or, cosmetic reasons, you don’t have to search for another surgeon. Dr. Bell is the real deal. He’s going to take really good care of you and you won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much for everything Dr. Bell! I am so grateful for your skills and care! You are absolutely the best in your specialty!
