HERE’S HOW OUR PATIENTS DESCRIBE THEIR EXPERIENCE

“I have suffered from TMD since I was diagnosed in my 20s during medical school (I’m now in my 60s) I have had major surgery on my jaw and jaw joints and seen multiple specialists over the years. I was referred to this practice by my general dentist. Dr. Kushner and her team have done more to help me with this problem than any other professional I have seen. She is thoughtful, caring, and compassionate, and her team echoes these same traits. When I first established care with this office, I was convinced I would never be comfortable or be able to eat normally again. The treatment plan and appliances I have been using have been nothing short of miraculous. Although I will never have a normal bite again, I have attained a level of comfort and function that I am very happy with and should serve me well for the rest of my life. I cannot recommend this office enough and offer a rating of 10 stars out of 5!! One bit of advice I would give to my fellow TMD sufferers; don’t let anyone tell you this is “all in your head”. This condition is very real and can be very debilitating. The only way TMD is “in your head” is in the fact that the TM joints attach to the base of your skull. Good luck to all of you!!”

Everyone is friendly and helpful. I went in with a very painful jaw. Nancy relined my appliance and put on new rubber bands. Dr Kerchner gave me injections inside and out, 20 minutes to half hour my pain was gone. Thank you"

Very impressed by Dr. Kushner and her terrific team! I now believe that after suffering from mild but chronic sleep apnea condition for more years than I can remember...there is indeed hope!Could never tolerate CPAP machines ever. I truly believe a dental appliance device is my best hope and looking very hopefully to it alleviating my condition.Dr. Kushner's book is absolutely superb. Have already recommended to a fellow sleep apneac' to acquire this text. For that matter, I will highly recommend the book to anyone that is afflicted with this condition.Thanks!Robert P.

Dr. Kushner and her team are miracle workers. After years of jaw pain and continued struggles with my bite—she found a way to fix it! Haha, I wish I could explain more in medical terms, but that is not my area of expertise. All I know is that she treated me like a real person, and her team exemplifies excellent customer service. I suppose that’s normal with a dynamic and caring leader. Thank you.

The TMD & Sleep Apnea Clinic was a very good experience. It was informative with absolutely no pressure to pick a particular mouthpiece for my Sleep Apnea. I was allowed to pick the one that was best for me. When I walked out of there, I felt take care of. I would recommend Dr. Kushner and her clinic to anyone with Sleep Apnea.

If I could rate more than 5, I would! One issue after the other was addressed, from TMD to sleep apnea diagnosis; before then, providers labeled my symptoms as "diffuse pain". I was validated not only by this diagnosis, but the staff. I worked with Dr. Kushner, Nancy, Kayla, Lindsay, Vivian and Susan (I literally love them all). The standard of care there is so wonderful, and I felt supported through my transition from constant pain and inflammation, to relief and rest. Every part of my life started to improve! Less irritation, ability to focus, I could READ AGAIN FOLKS. There is no rating scale great enough! I'm 27, and having sleep apnea isn't something I thought affected younger people, and it surprised my primary care doctor too. I've been talking to almost everyone about getting checked for sleep disturbance/sleep apnea/TMD. Our sleep is so important. Otherwise, we can't heal, and I mean that in every sense of the word.

I’ve had a wonderful experience with the entire staff at Dr. Kushner’s office. I have had TMJ for years and had an awful dentist in Virginia perform an unnecessary realignment on my mouth, so I was a unique case. When I first came in, I was feeling like I couldn’t get relief for my jaw pain, and I was exhausted.

When I got the mouthpiece initially, it brought my lower jaw forward and it felt great. I yawned after the first couple nights sleeping with it and my jaw cracked, as if it was cracking back into proper alignment after being off for several years. My husband noticed a significant reduction in my snoring right away. My husband said my face even looks better, that my jaw and facial structure look like they should be. I feel rested.

If I had to describe the staff at the office with one word, I’d use “thorough.” At this point I’ve been in for multiple appointments. Each time the staff checks the mouthpiece and modifies it to make sure it’s perfect. I truly appreciate coming in for multiple modifications to get it just right.

Now Dr. Kushner wants a sleep study, and I am eager to see how that goes. I encourage anyone who is having jaw pain or related issues to come see the staff here. You have nothing to lose, but you do have a better quality of life to gain.

Words cannot describe how thankful I am to Dr. Kushner and her AMAZING team! I came in with extraordinary pain in my jaw, and not only did they genuinely care, they were able to get me in quickly and get my pain figured out and fixed! It is clear that Dr. Kushner treats her staff very well and they love what they do. I couldn't believe how happy they all were for me when my pain was reduced! This is an amazing place and I would not hesitate for a second to recommend them to anyone experiencing TMD or sleep apnea issues.
