This can lead to serious health consequences and even death due to heart disease, high blood pressure, or stroke. Sleep apnea has been linked to a number of other medical conditions, including heart attacks, GERD, diabetes, eye disorders, erectile dysfunction and pregnancy complications for women.

What Our Patients Are Saying
In our 30+ years of practice, we’ve seen thousands of patients. How can we help you?
I sit in the big chair, and then they get the mirror thingy and they look at my teeth. When they use the Tinkerbell light, it didn't hurt at all. I like it when my teeth are bright and shiny when I leave. I really like coming to see Doctor Ann.
I’ve been coming here for about 16, 17 years, and all of my kids from elementary through high school, and even in college have come and we’ve all had the same experience. They are pleasant. They get to know you. They would always explain to me the proper way to floss, and the particular type of flosses to use.
There’s always a level of comfort. As you’re sitting in the waiting room, you don’t feel like you’re bored out of your mind. It’s a nice, comfortable environment. The same when you get back in the chair. The TV’s going, and it makes you feel a little bit more at home.
I came in and I ended up having 3 cavities. She then showed me how to prevent them in future and how to just maintain healthy teeth. She’s super outgoing, super easy to get along with, never awkward, always so talkative, interested about everyone’s life. The kids center is a big plus.
