“I love what I do as a dentist, but the best part of my job is the relationship I have with each of my patients. I understand that people can feel anxious at the dentist, and that is why I try to connect with everyone on a personal level. I want every person to feel like the dental office is a place where they can truly feel comfortable.” – Matthew R. Baran, DMD
“Several years ago, I was diagnosed with mild moderate sleep apnea after a 2-day study in a sleep clinic. My medical doctor had prescribed the CPAP machine for me. I’m sure there are others out there who have success with the CPAP, but after multiple problems getting used to it I finally gave up.
In the spring of 2012, during my normal teeth cleaning visit to Dr. Nibouar’s office, I was updating my medical history with Pam and shared my sleep apnea condition. She told me that Dr. Nibouar was able to make sleep apnea appliances. Now I wear the appliance every night and am having great success with it. Now I sleep so much better and don’t worry about having a stroke or the other medical problms that come from sleep apnea! I’m very thankful to Pam, for being a good listener and to Kat and Dr. Nibouar for making my guard and coaching me through this!”
