Another place to try is mouthpiece express. They also have a trial period where you can try up to 4 mouthpieces and if you buy one you don't pay a re-stocking fee for the others. I don't think that they will be as knowledgeable as Dillon or Brasswind though.
The other posts give good advice, don't expect a mouthpiece to "fix" any fundamental problems that you may be encountering. I would suggest starting out by trying a "funnel" style mouthpiece, like a Helleberg, and a cupped style, like the Bach 18 or 24AW to see which you like better. Any of the other mouthpieces that you try are likely to be variations on these.
