I wanted to thank you for your diagnosis on my grinding of my teeth while I slept and treatment of the tooth guard. The results have been exceptional and more then I can ever have hoped for.
I do not have any more tooth or jaw pain that was caused by my unconscious grinding of teeth. I remember the day well when I came into your office complaining of severe tooth pain on my upper right side. At first I thought I had, at best, a bad cavity and at worst an impacted molar. I was not in the best of ways.
You then diagnosed the problem using ice and instruments and x-rays, all came back negative. You then asked the question, "Do you sometimes grind your teeth?" I had to answer that I did, but I actively tried not to. You then asked if I had been under more stress than usual, and again I answered yes.
It was then that you explained the appliance that you said would take care of the problem. You also said it was not inexpensive, about $500.00.
Well, I am here to tell you that it was the best investment that I have made in a long time. I have been able to sleep better than I have in many years. I suffer from a severe case of post nasal drip that affects my breathing, this has been dramatically reduced while I sleep and the after effects in the morning are greatly reduced. But most of all the tooth pain is gone, not just reduced but gone.
Thank you again for your "Excellence in Dentistry" and your compassion for my pain. — Sincerely, Mark B.
I am so glad that I followed Dr. Walker's suggestion and made the choice to go through orthodontic work with Dr. Haeger and then major additional cosmetic dental work with Dr. Walker when I was in my 50's. As a Church Secretary, I am more comfortable with my appearance as I greet the many people that come into the office. It's also wonderful to feel confident enough now to smile for pictures! Many thanks to Dr. Walker and all his staff for my fantastic new look! — Verna S.
I am 57 years old and have an almost phobia about dentists. Dr. Inaba and his team is the first dentist's office I have been to that I have no fear & feel comfortable coming to in all my years going to the dentist. — Anna L.
Thank you for the beautiful smile. I feel 20 years younger. You have given me a smile that I am so proud of! I will gladly recommend your services to my friends and family. — Pat S.
After not having been to a dentist in, ummmm… a few(give or take) years, I've felt truly blessed to find an awesome "dental home" here at MDC. You "guys" are THE BEST! Everyone is friendly and helpful, and of course, the care is excellent-PLUS! No worries…no stress!! I can't help smiling when I walk in.....and when I walk out, I'm smiling an even better, HEALTHIER smile! Thanks all!!! :) — Minda M.
Thanks for the time and attention today. Please express my gratitude to Dr. Steve as well. I really like the attitude of your office and the staff, and your willingness to help me face some of the challenges dental work means for me. I will be very glad to get some of this work underway, as you can see I have a significant investment in my teeth and dental health and I really don't want anything to get too far away from me. I may well decide to do more than this year's benefits allow, and just pay as I go. Your willingness to help me with the issues I have as far as comfort are making me feel brave. Thanks again, and see you Monday. — Jana V.
Dr. Inaba- Just wanted to thank you for the unparalleled care shown by you, Dr. Walker, and your whole team. Having competed against and coached Olympic medalists I've also been fortunate enough to have been worked on by some of the country's best surgeons. But none exhibited the professionalism and service I'm getting at your clinic. -Rob R.
