What Our Patients Say


Alina V.

We have been going to Dr. Dougherty’s Sherman Oaks office on and off for over 8 years. His office was recommended by our kids’ pediatric dentist. At our initial consultation, Dr. Dougherty stated that our daughter’s orthodontis work would be 2 phases. Based on his calculations, he determined that she would need a maxillofacial surgery. As Dr. Dougherty had predicted, multiple maxillofacial surgeons reconfirmed his recommendation to perform the surgery. Dr. Dougherty’s pre-surgery work was spot on. The maxillofacial surgeon was amazed at how precise the teeth were placed. It made surgery and post surgery work minimal. We highly recommend Dr. Dougherty for all orthodontic work.”
