Wesley Chapel Sleep Apnea Patient Reviews

"I initially came to Dr. Nelson to get a sleep apnea oral appliance. That experience was so pleasant and executed so well, that when I needed additional dental work, I decided to make Dr. Nelson my dentist permanently."

"Really happy with Nelson Dentistry and my sleeping appliance which stop me from snoring. They are always available for you no matter what and make time for their patients with any issues. Glad that the VA hospital referred me to them. No longer have to travel or wear a C-pap machine to sleep. Thank you Frances and Dr. Nelson :)"

"Patient for 2 years Excellent in every way. Kind friendly staff. Dr. Nelson and his staff are the best I have ever had. I am 75 years old. The mouthpiece for my very severe sleep apnea works wonderfully so I do not have to use the machine. Can't thank him enough for that!"

"I have been going to Dr Nelson now for 5 years. I have had a snore appliance/mouth piece for 2 years. My wife says it is amazing. She can actually get a full night sleep now and I am not getting poked in the ribs every couple of hours. If you have a problem with snoring or your wife has a bigger problem with your snoring. Dr Nelson is the one to see."

"Dr. Nelson and his dental sleep medicine team, Betsy and Frances, are very professional, knowledgeable and experts in their field. They used state of the art digital equipment to measure and design my sleep appliance. The fitting process was very smooth and the dental sleep appliance is extremely comfortable. Since using the sleep device, I sleep like a baby and definitely have more energy the next day when I wake up. I highly recommend Dr. Nelson and his team to address your snoring or sleep apnea issues. You will not be disappointed!!!"

Oral Appliance Therapy

A More Comfortable Solution
to Sleep Apnea & Snoring

Many people who are diagnosed with sleep apnea are automatically prescribed CPAP therapy. Not only is this treatment method deemed uncomfortable by many patients, but it can be hard to fall asleep with a mask on your face. We offer customized oral appliances that you wear as you sleep that will help open your airway and maximize your air flow, improving your health and quality of rest.
