Deb discusses her care at the practice of Dr. Tim Kelly in this temporomandibular (TMJ) disorder testimonial. She stresses the impact Dr. Kelly's gentle touch and calming demeanor had on her. After experiencing anxiety over trips to the dentist, she now feels completely comfortable during appointments.
I'm Deb Matthew and I've been coming to Dr. Kelly for about five years for just general dental care and also to help correct some issues I'd had with some dental work in the past that had caused problems. He's been making me feel a lot better.
I was in a bad place with TMJ and not being able to sleep at night and having a lot of sleep deprivation issues. It actually makes you kind of crazy when you can't sleep and I wasn't sure if we were ever going to be able to fix that. Dr. Kelly has gradually helped fix all that without doing anything really drastic, without having to do surgery which I was afraid I was going to have to do. It's been a godsend because I can finally sleep again, and I've just improved 100% so I really recommend him.
Dr. Kelly has such a soothing personality. He's real low-key, and he's just very gentle, more than any other dentist I've ever been to. He calms you down. Going to the dentist used to be kind of a scary experience and now I feel like I'm always totally relaxed. He's just so gentle and it's unusual. So it's been a really wonderful experience to not be afraid of going to the dentist.
