Impressions were taken for a dental apnea device. The technician did a terrific job in taking the X-ray and making the impressions. In the past I have had difficulty with having impressions made. However, she kept me informed of what was being done and put me at ease. I had no anxiety problems with the procedure.

I had an oral appliance made in a clinic in Boise several years ago and saw Dr. Kushner because I was concerned that my bite was altered. She was very knowledgeable and personable and spent at least 30 minutes with me at my appointment. I was very impressed with her expertise.

I didn’t have any real problems with my jaw until one night when it cracked in the middle of my sleep, and after that I couldn’t open it. It was one of the scariest moments in my life because I couldn’t eat, or even open enough to fit a straw or spoon in my mouth for weeks (I lived off only protein drinks for this time). I went in very scared and upset, and all of the staff was so kind and comforting. I ended up seeing Dr. Kushner... she was very patient and understanding with me, and she is really funny. I had to get an MRI first so that they could see what was wrong in my jaw... they got me in really quickly as well, so they could help me as soon as possible. She tried to unlock my jaw with numbing shots and lots of force twice, but my jaw just wouldn’t budge. Even though it didn’t work, she never gave up on me or gave up hope. They ended up getting me in for mouth massages with Nancy after this, who has been amazing, and this stretches the muscles out to help them relax without trying to force it open. They also made an appliance for me after a little while that holds my teeth apart so I can rest my jaw during the day and night so that I can keep my progress now. Basically, even if something doesn’t work, they’ll keep trying their best to keep you out of pain and improving. It’s been about a month and a half, and even though I am still locked, going to the appointments has helped me immensely and the pain is a lot less than what it started at. Now I can open enough to eat softer foods and talk mostly normally, which is a huge difference from where I started. All of the people at the clinic genuinely care and know how scary it can be to have TMJ problems, and if you go here, you’re in good hands. Although my case is a really difficult one since my jaw has locked so stubbornly, they haven’t given up on me and really care about your progress and keeping you improving and out of pain. If you are struggling with TMJ pain, I would definitely recommend checking out this clinic.

I've always had excellent care at the TMD Clinic (4 years). The staff is friendly, professional and courteous - all of which Dr. Kushner embraces as well - in addition to her high degree of training and experience in her fields of expertise. In addition, she's a very personal and caring doctor - puts her patients immediately at ease, and isn't satisfied with the results of her care, until her patients are. I highly recommend her!

Truly a great and refreshing experience! I was impressed by how courteous, caring, and attentive the doctor was. I highly recommend this clinic. The new patient coordinator (Mackenzie) was extremely helpful. She listened to my needs and guided me through the process, which relieved a lot of my anxiety before going in. Great place! Great staff! Highly recommend.

I'm not sure how to do this but I want to tell the world how great The TMD Sleep Apnea Clinic is. There were very easy to talk to. They helped solve something that could have had a dangerous effect.

Wow! Fantastic service. I have been losing sleep for over eleven years not knowing I had sleep apnea. The friendly ladies at the clinic were able to quickly diagnose and treat the issue.

Literally life changing. I am very pleased with Dr Kushner and her staff at the TMD Sleep Apnea clinic in Poulsbo. My jaw misalignment and sleep apnea have been resolved with the use of custom oral appliances. I have been using them for 9 months now. They are dramatically more efficient and comfortable for me than my CPAP machine. I have mild to moderate apnea and TMJ. I really wasn’t completely aware of just how much my sleep and jaw issues were degrading my health and life. I now sleep the entire night without waking up gasping for air, snoring, choking or just waking up for an unidentifiable reason. The headaches associated to my jaw misalignment are gone. Yes, life changing!

Had a locked jaw due to TMJ and was an emergency last minute visit and they were able to fit me into their schedule. Staff is awesome and unbelievably considerate in making you feel comfortable. My jaw pain has gone down considerably since they’ve helped me. Highly recommend them!

Awesome! I was amazed at what the Dr could tell me about my health just from looking at my xray. It was a terrific experience.
