The oral appliance that you have supplied to me has helped me in all facets of my work and life. I no longer need to wear an uncomfortable CPAP when I sleep and it also makes traveling so much easier. I do not need to nap during the day and can drive for longer periods of time without my eyes wanting to close due to exhaustion from not getting a full REM sleep. If you ever need anyone to discuss your appliance results with me feel free to have them give me a call as I am a very happy patient.
I found Dr. Poncza’s office while eating at a nearby restaurant. Prior to meeting with Dr. Poncza I had been prescribed a CPAP machine for my obstructive sleep apnea. I used the CPAP consistently for 6 months and, although I was having more restful sleep, I could not get used to wearing the mask. (I tried every style from full-face to nasal pillows) Towards the end of my CPAP trial, I found myself waking to the air hose wrapped around my neck – definitely not a comfortable way to wake up. I found Dr. Poncza to be very knowledgable about obstructive sleep apnea and he was able to discuss my options for oral appliances. I really appreciated his manner in not pushing me towards one specific brand, but rather explaining each device and their specific benefits. Jessica was unbelievably helpful in navigating the insurance world. Through her help, I was able to obtain a single case afreement with Dr. Poncza to cover the majority of the costs. Once I received my appliance Dr. Poncza and his staff worked with me to ensure the fit was perfect and I was comfortable using it. My sleep has improved and I feel much more at ease at night. I am very happy with my experience at Smile On Dental Salon and have recommended Dr. Poncza to my friends and family.
