    My treatment has been nothing short of life changing. I have struggled with TMJ issues for about 10 years and it got much worse in the last year. After treatment here, I can now chew on both sides of my mouth, open my jaw all the way, no more clicking or popping, and finally no pain or ringing ears. I was skeptical at first, but Dr. VanDkye REALLY knows what she’s talking about and all the women in the office are so helpful!

    I started with TMJ &Sleep Therapy Center in June this year. I was grinding teeth with mouth pieces made at the dentist offices that didn't help with my other issues. HEADACHES, not sleeping, jaw popping, pain in right ear, sinus issues. I was hoping only for help with headaches and sleep, and grinding. I recieved my more than ever expected. I sleep through the night, headache free, popping gone. Mouth pieces are so different than others I have had made. They truly gave me my life back. Thank you!

    The staff is wonderful, and so knowledgeable. My wife had been suffering for a long time with jaw pain, none of the medical doctors were able to help her. Finally, after treatment she has had no more pain and life is good!
