Dear Dr. Evans,
I'm so thankful to M.B. for referring me to you. I loved everything about the visit- from your team, to your office lay-out, and most especially you-except of course for the diagnosis. You made me feel very at ease and I have no fear of coming back to you for cleanings or anything else for that matter.
I had used a C-Pap for over 15 years, constantly hating it. My first C-Pap was bulky, heavy, and noisy. The second C-Pap was an improvement but still created some noise and both were difficult with which to travel. They took up valuable luggage space. I always had to carry an extension cord and a multiple outlet adapter to be certain that the C-pap could be placed next to my bed in hotels, on cruises, or when staying with friends or relatives. I couldn't sleep without the C-Pap, without being overly fatigued the next day. However, in all the years that I used a C-Pap, I never went a night without waking up many times due to being "tethered". Every time I moved or turned while sleeping, I would have to adjust the C-Pap mask for comfort. One of my biggest complaints was the marks which I had on each cheek from the headgear. They were beginning to be permanent and looked like scars. They never really went away during the day.
I had heard about an oral appliance that could help people with sleep apnea, but I was skeptical. I was doing OK even though I was unhappy (no, miserable) about having to use a C-Pap. I was afraid that I would get it, and it wouldn't work for me. And I would have spent all that money for nothing. Well, I was wrong! The SomnoDent MAS was the best thing that could have happened to me. From the very first night, I knew that I had made the right decision. I had no difficulty adjusting to it. I can put the SomnoDent in place, climb in bed and read for a while, and turn out the lights when I feel sleepy. I am no longer attached to anything and can sleep in any position. Cleaning is easy and there are no parts to replace. Traveling is so much easier - the small cup will even fit in my purse. And best of all, my bedroom is quiet again. No C-Pap noise and no snoring!
Thank you, Dr. Evans. I would certainly recommend this product to any of your patients who suffer from sleep apnea.
Because of something that happened to me as a child, I have been afraid of Dentists to the point that I would put off any dental work that had to be done until I couldn't put it off any longer. Then I would be afraid that I would be laughed at or something would be said about my teeth that would embarrass me. I get white knuckles when I get into a Dentist chair, I am so afraid of what may happen. A friend told me about Dr. Evans and his staff. She said they were great, but she was very mistaken, they are all just WONDERFUL!!!
Dr. Evans talked with me before he started the procedure and let me know what he was going to do, which made me feel better. When he put the needle in to deaden my mouth, I didn't even feel it. He kept asking if I was okay? as he worked away. I had a lot that had to be done, and still have some more to go, but I do not have the white knuckles any more. I love Dr. Evans and his beautiful staff. They are all so friendly and concerned. I will be telling my friends about him.
Thanks Dr. Evans for being so thoughtful and understanding.
My little girl felt like a princess when Brenda wrapped up a flower and gave it to her! Joanna was so sweet and reassuring to her. By far the best dental appointment my little girl has had! My husband and I will be making the switch to your office as well!
We LOVE Dr. Evans and the whole team! I recommend you guys every chance I get. I have had bad experiences with prior dental office and was very nervous when we moved here and started using you guys. We've been patients for almost 10 years and have NO plans to ever go anywhere else. Great Job.
