“I had an unhealthy fear of the dentist. Like almost a phobia. I had been dealing with tooth pain for almost 3 weeks and went in. Saw Dr Laura and she was so nice! I was told I had to have 4 root canals. I was terrified. I had 2 of the 4 root canals done 5/25/16. I will say one of the best experiences ever!! I cannot wait to have the other 2 done!”

-Brad M.

“Beyond the best dental experience I have ever had! As a majority of people I have always been nervous about going to the dentist. Today I had a consultation/cleaning with Amy and I’m speechless with how amazing and professional she was! My biggest fear is my receding gums! Amy and Brad talked options with me and what a relief! Winn Smiles definitely has a spirit of excellence! No more nervous appointments for this girl!!! Thank you so much Winn Smiles!!!”

Sleep Apnea Appliance Review

“Most mornings over the last 3 to 4 years, I woke up feeling tired and fatigued. I decided to visit my doctor to see if I had an underlying issue. After several tests it was determined I needed a sleep study. The study resulted in “mild sleep apnea” and I was in need of a CPAP device. I am claustrophobic and after trying several devices, I knew I needed to do something else. I began to do my research and found that there was a mouthguard device which helped with mild to moderate sleep apnea. After talking to my doctor they set up an appointment for me with a dentist in Chattanooga for a consult. I mentioned to my dental hygienist at Winn Smiles that I was being sent to a dentist in Chattanooga and she said “we are getting ready to start offering this in our office”! I was so happy I didn’t have to make a trip to Chattanooga when my own dentist will offer the same thing here in Cleveland!

I have been sleeping with the mouth guard device for about 3 months and feel so much better! At 57, my biggest priority is my health. I’m sleeping better and waking up feeling rested and refreshed, eating clean and exercising, not to mention losing 15lbs! Thank you Dr. Brad and staff for helping change my life!”
