Hmmm... The big west coast center is up at in San Francisco at UCSF. Peter Goadsby, a world renowned headache specialist, heads up the clinic. Not sure if you want to make the 7/8(?) hr drive, but they are the authorities.
A DDS is a Doctor of Dental Sciences (a dentist). He/She is probably a TMJ specialist; not what you are looking for.
I'm not too familiar with Dr. Kudrow, but from physicians he associates with I would think he is probably pretty good. He has a private practice and an appointment at UCLA.
Now that I think about
it here's what I would do (If I was determined to stay with a physician in LA). I would call the UCSF Headache Clinic and ask them who they would recommend in LA for menstrual migraine.
If your willing to travel cross country I could give you some recommendations for physicians who specialize in women's migraine. I'm on the west coast and my HA specialist is across the country. For me, having a highly competent, thoughtful physician is worth the hassle.
