"Dr. Smith is a peach, Sara in the financial department is super and the entire Dentistry With TLC team is great. My oral appliance has made a wonderful and dramatic improvement in my life. I learned about Dr. Smith and this appliance from fellow members at my church. I used a CPAP and disliked everything about it. Now I use an oral appliance and I my medical doctor said I no longer need to use the CPAP. My oral appliance is so much easier to clean than my CPAP and convenient for travel."

"I came to Dentistry With TLC when my ENT recommended I try a sleep appliance. This office has great customer relationships. All the people who work here have a smile on their face and are very pleasant to work with. They do everything they can to get me in to my appointment as soon as possible.

"I had forgotten how great it feels to sleep through the night and wake up with energy. I started sleeping better the very first night I used my sleep appliance. My oral appliance helps my wife sleep better too because I no longer snore! I used to get up 2 or 3 times every night to go to the bathroom and I never felt rejuvenated after a full night of sleep. Now I sleep for 8 hours without getting out of bed and I feel great in the morning. My sleep appliance more than paid for itself in just the first month by the amount of energy I gained."

-Billy D., Wood River, IL

davide

"A nurse at my doctor's office told me about Dr. Smith's oral appliance because I didn't like using my CPAP. Now that I use an oral appliance I don't have to deal with a mask, a hose or pressure on my face and I can sleep in any position. I sleep better with my appliance than I did with my CPAP and I have more energy during the day. My back doesn't hurt as much and I've even lost weight! I'm so glad I saw Dr. Smith and decided to get an oral appliance."

- David E., Godfrey

christinet

"When I first came to see Dr. Smith I was not sleeping much at all. My husband said I was gasping and choking which was disturbing his sleep too. I would wake up exhausted and barely be able to make it through the day. Now that I have a sleep appliance I wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day. I like the prompt service and knowledgeable people at Dentistry With TLC. I'm so glad I learned about Dr. Smith in the Healthy Cells magazine in my doctor's office."

- Christine T, Troy, IL

rexs

"When I found out I had sleep apnea I decided to try an oral appliance instead of a CPAP. I learned about oral appliances from watching Dr. Smith on tv and reading her articles in the newspaper. I got used to my appliance in no time at all because it was very comfortable the very first night I used it. Now I sleep better at night and I feel more rested during the day. I recommend talking to Dr. Smith if you have sleep apnea and don't want to use a CPAP. All the people at Dentistry With TLC are friendly and the office has a warm atmosphere."

- Rex S, Troy, IL

doloresb

"I adjusted to my oral sleep appliance in just two nights. I love that I can get up out of bed without having to take it off and put it back on, like my old CPAP. My husband is sleeping better too because he says I no longer snore like I did before I used my oral appliance. I'm so glad I called Dr. Smith's office after seeing her on TV and reading about the oral appliance in the newspaper."

- Dolores B., Dorsey, IL

Dentistry With TLC is a great operation! I made the drive to Godfrey to have Dr. Smith make me an oral sleep appliance because my CPAP was very cumbersome when I would travel and it made sleeping uncomfortable. Now that I use an oral sleep appliance instead of my CPAP I have freedom to sleep in any position, I'm comfortable while I sleep and I get a better quality of sleep. It's very easy to travel with my appliance and I can use it anywhere without public awareness (even on an airplane). If your concerned about the cost of an oral appliance I recommend evaluating the cost of simple conveniences you already pay for and compare them to the cost of something that you will use everyday which has the ability to improve the quality of your life."

- Jurgen W, Mascoutah, IL

"I could never get a good fit with my CPAP and it was noisy. My appliance is convenient, quiet and easy to clean. After using my appliance for about a week I felt more rested during the day and I sleep soundly at night. I no longer need to take naps. The benefits of my oral sleep appliance far outweigh the cost."

- Shirley H., Jerseyville, IL

"My oral appliance is so easy to use. I love that I'll never have to use that CPAP again now that I have an oral sleep appliance. It only took me about three days to get used to my appliance and now I don't feel tired all the time, I feel rested. I'm glad I had Dr. Smith make my appliance because I've never had to wait at Dentistry With TLC and they always get me right in. Everyone is so eager to help.

"Dr. Smith is so nice and she explains things thoroughly. I had her make me an oral appliance because I disliked everything about my CPAP. My appliance was comfortable the first time I used it, I can take it with me easily and IT WORKS!! Now I snore much less than I used to. When I do snore it's quiet and nice. If you are considering an oral appliance, I would recommend you get it!"

- Betty L., Witt, IL

"Coming to Dentistry With TLC is always great. Dr. Smith made me an oral appliance and I no longer need to use my CPAP to treat my sleep apnea. I love that my oral appliance is mobile, easy to use and it works well. Now I feel more rested in the morning, I am less irritable and I have more energy all day. My appliance was well worth the cost because you can't put a price on improving your health and well-being."

carlh

"If you don't like your CPAP, get an oral sleep appliance. It's worth the cost! I feel more rested and I've had a great experience with Dr. Smith at Dentistry With TLC. I did not like sleeping with a mask on my face. Every time I would turn over it would slide off my face and wake me up. I'm so happy to have an oral sleep appliance and no longer have anything on my face while I sleep."

- Carl H., Godfrey, IL

keithe

"I first learned about an oral appliance when I saw Dr. Smith on TV. I was using a CPAP but I didn't like the discomfort of the mask and the hose. Now I have an oral appliance and it is comfortable, easy and non-obtrusive. My life is improved now that I can sleep better. Dr. Smith and the people at Dentistry With TLC are very professional and friendly."

wilberts

"I like my oral sleep appliance and I think it's worth every penny. I used to use a CPAP and I disliked always having to put water in it and dealing with the hose. It also made traveling difficult. Now that Dr. Smith made me an oral sleep appliance I don't need my CPAP anymore and I sleep better. I'm glad I read about the oral appliance in the paper."

- Wilbert S., Jerseyville, IL

terryc

"I used a CPAP for about 10 years. It was restrictive and cumbersome and would keep me awake at times during the night. I learned about the oral sleep appliance at a local seminar. My appliance is very natural to wear, helps me sleep better and I no longer snore. I felt better the first night I used it. My appliance is well worth the cost, especially considering my health and well-being are at stake. I've found the staff at Dentistry With TLC to be professional and Dr. Smith is very personable. Her expertise in dental care is evident in the care she takes with her patients."

- Terry C., Troy, IL

georgef

"My sleep appliance is worth every penny because it has provided me with a good night's sleep, more energy during the day and I no longer snore. I've had a great experience at Dentistry With TLC. It only took me about three nights to get completely used to my appliance. I tried a CPAP in the past but just couldn't use it because the hose would wrap around my neck and I couldn't get a good night's sleep."

- George F., Millstadt, IL

rachellel

"Dr. Smith and her staff are very pleasant. I'm glad I found out about their office and the sleep appliance online. I used a CPAP for eight years and found that it was hard for me to use because it would keep me awake at night. Now I use an oral sleep appliance and I sleep so much better. I enjoy being able to sleep in any position and I feel free because I no longer have to be connected to a machine. The appliance is worth the cost for the improvement in the quality of my life."

- Rachelle L., St. Charles, MO

robinl

"I wasn't able to use a CPAP because I would take it off during the night and it made traveling difficult. I don't have any problems with my oral appliance. I can use it all night, every night. I sleep better, no longer wake up with headaches and I have more energy all day. I got used to my oral appliance immediately. I'm so glad I saw Dr. Smith on Channel 4. My experience at Dentistry With TLC has been fantastic! I recommend Dr. Smith to anyone looking for a dentist or who has sleep apnea issues."

- Robin L., Fairview Heights, IL

johns

"Getting an oral sleep appliance from Dr. Smith is the best move I have made. I used a CPAP for 8 years before I got my appliance and I really disliked sleeping with a mask on my face. Now that I sleep with my oral appliance I rest more soundly at night, my wife is happier because I no longer snore, and I am full of energy during the day."

- John S., St. Genevieve, MO

daryla

"I couldn't use a CPAP because I hated everything about it. Now that I use an oral appliance I sleep better, I'm no longer getting up four or five times every night and I'm dreaming again. I feel more refreshed and alert during the day since the quality of my sleep is better at night. If you are concerned about the cost of the appliance, don't be. It's worth it for a good night's sleep. I've had a great experience at Dentistry With TLC."

- Daryl A., House Springs, MO

nonam

"Using a CPAP made me feel like an old, dying person! The CPAP was bulky and hard to carry when I traveled. My oral appliance is small and makes traveling much easier. It gives me the freedom to move easier at night and I can cuddle with my husband again. The cost of the appliance is well worth the freedom it allows me! I love being more mobile and my husband loves that I snore less with my oral appliance. I've always experienced caring and helpful people at Dentistry With TLC. I appreciate that they made taking on my insurance company easier than if I had to deal with insurance alone."

- Nona M., Gerald, MO

geraldh

"I tried to use a CPAP to treat my sleep apnea but I just couldn't sleep with the CPAP machine. It only took me one night to get used to my oral appliance. It's easy, it works and I feel so much better during the day. I'm no longer tired all the time. My appliance is worth it's cost and I've had a good experience with Dr. Smith at Dentistry With TLC."

- Gerald H., Staunton, IL

scottb

"The top three things I love about my oral sleep appliance is that now I have more energy, I have more energy and I have more energy. It only took me just a couple of nights to get used to sleeping with the appliance in my mouth before I started to notice I slept better, felt more rested and had more energy during the day. I tried to use a CPAP but could never get used to it. I'm glad I saw Dr. Smith on Channel 4's "Great Day St. Louis" because now I sleep better and I have more energy. Did I mention that I have more energy?"

- Scott B., Collinsville, IL

roberta

"Before I used an oral appliance I was tired all day and rarely dreamed because I wasn't getting deep, restful sleep. Now that I use my oral appliance I dream nightly and am not tired all day. I also yawn less. My appliance is easy to use, easy to clean and completely portable. My CPAP was ineffective and I disliked the maintenance and cumbersome feeling. My experience at Dentistry With TLC has been terrific. Everyone is friendly and helpful. My appliance is totally worth the cost because the results are great."

- Robert A., Mascoutah, IL

"Don't wait. Get this oral appliance as soon as you can. I used to use a CPAP and I disliked everything about it. Since I've been using my appliance I sleep better at night and have more energy during the day. I no longer use my CPAP and don't have to deal with the noise of my CPAP when I sleep, I don't wake up during the night and my wife sleeps better too. I'm glad I learned about Dr. Smith on the radio and drove to Godfrey. Everything at Dentistry With TLC has been great."

- Ron B., Bartelso, IL

peterc

"Dr. Smith and everyone with whom I've worked are kind, caring and very competent. This has been a great experience! Before I got my oral appliance I used a CPAP and felt like an alien. I was claustrophobic and would toss and turn in my sleep. I'm a mouth breather and would tear the mask off during the night. With my oral appliance it no longer matters where or in what position I sleep and I can easily breathe through my mouth. My appliance is portable. I'm MUCH more alert and rested. I have more energy and joy. I consider the cost of my appliance is negligible compared to my results."

- Peter C., Alton, IL

deboraho

"Coming to Dentistry With TLC to see Dr. Smith is the best thing I have done for myself. I had an oral appliance made and it's very easy to use. I love the freedom to sleep on my side or my back. Traveling is much easier with my appliance than with my old CPAP. I like that Dentistry With TLC helped me deal with my insurance company and they also offered me a payment plan. I feel much less tired during the day now that I get great sleep at night."

- Deborah O., Glen Carbon, IL

It has been so nice to experience the earnest and sincere interest in my welfare from Dr. Smith and her team at Dentistry With TLC. I highly recommend her and I am so glad I got an oral appliance after seeing her on TV and attending a seminar.

Since I've been using my oral sleep appliance I feel more energetic during the day and my family is no longer bothered by my snoring at night.

"Since using my oral sleep appliance I have lost 40 pounds and I feel great! My appliance is easy to use, was easy to get used to, and makes traveling easy because it's small, not bulky like the CPAP. Life is too short not to enjoy it to the fullest! My oral sleep appliance has improved my quality of life by allowing me to get great sleep, have more energy during the day to take care of myself. The benefits far outweigh the cost of this great device."

- Pamela N., Godfrey, IL

"Since I've been using my oral sleep appliance I sleep much deeper and I wake up feeling more rested. I feel like I've already had my morning cup of coffee. I didn't want to try to use a CPAP because it looked uncomfortable. My oral appliance is easy to use, comfortable and works well. The nice folks at Dentistry With TLC are happy to spend all the time I need to answer my questions and make things work."

- Dennis V., Holiday Shores, IL

timc

"I give Dr. Smith and Dentistry With TLC an A+. She made me an oral appliance and now I sleep through the night. I used to use a CPAP, but I disliked everything about it. The CPAP didn't stay on all night, it was uncomfortable and I felt restrained. My oral appliance works great. It's small so it doesn't get in my way and it's simple to maintain. Anyone who can't sleep with a CPAP would pretty much not even consider the cost of the appliance because it works so well."

- Tim C., Florissant, MO

deannaw

"My sleep appliance is well worth its cost because I feel more rested, I don't use my CPAP anymore and my sleep appliance makes traveling easy. I disliked using my CPAP because I would get tangled in the hose and the mask would slip around on my face. Now that I sleep with my appliance I sleep longer and better. I've enjoyed my experience at Dentistry With TLC. I've never had a long wait and the people are always nice. They have answers to all my questions."

carolb

"Dentistry With TLC is unique. The people here are glad to resolve any problems! I saw Dr. Smith on a television interview talking about oral appliances. I used a CPAP - ugh! The CPAP was too cumbersome and impossible for a stomach sleeper. Dr. Smith made me an oral appliance and it is easy to travel with, easy to use and I no longer snore! My entire life has had great improvement. I've had a great experience at Dentistry With TLC. It's so easy!"

- Carol B., Jerseyville, IL

"My oral sleep appliance has changed my life. Since I began using my oral sleep appliance just one month ago, my energy level has returned, my snoring has stopped and I've gotten my life back! I don't fall asleep anymore during the day. I used a CPAP before and I hated it! If you suffer with sleep apnea, I recommend trying an oral appliance; it may change your life. To Dr. Smith and the friendly staff at Dentistry With TLC, thank you. You guys rock!"

- Darell H., South Roxana, IL

billc

"My oral sleep appliance gives me full, restful nights of sleep which increases my energy for the day. Before I got an oral appliance I used a CPAP every night for 5 years and I was unhappy every night when I put it on. I lacked free movement because the air hose kept me tethered and it made fluttering noises that would wake my wife when the air would escape from the mask. The tightness of the headgear made the bridge of my nose sore, left strap marks on my cheeks and made indentions on my forehead. When the power went off I had no air. The CPAP also made my nose and throat dry and airport screening was an ordeal. Now thatI use an oral sleep appliance I don't have any more facial marks, dry mouth, and pain from the tight mask or noise to wake my wife. I love being free to move and turn over. Dr. Smith and the staff at Dentistry With TLC encouraged me to call if I had questions. I have the sense that they really want their patients to have a better quality of life."

- Bill C., Edwardsville, IL
