General Dentistry: I have been practicing general dentistry for over 35 years and I still love what I do. One of the most important things we do is explain what we are doing, why we are doing it and and what we expect from it.

Explanations could be using models (we have a closet full of models of teeth, skulls and jaws and sleep apnea appliances) We may, however chose to draw you a colored picture of what is wrong and what we want to do.

We do not rush and we do not double book. If you are in pain, you will be seen that same day. If the office is closed, the office answering machine will give you my personal cell phone number.

If you have questions about insurance, talk to Linda. She is amazing as to how much information (and money) she can get out of insurance companies.

I have the best hygienist (Hannah) and assistant (Maria) anyone could ask for. Maria is actually a dentist from the Philippines.
Junie, our receptionist has actually worked here longer than me and is really my boss?!

Make an appointment we all love our patients.

Headache: Dr. Ney has treated patients for headaches related to jaw and neck muscles for over 30 years. 85% of all headache is muscle, and we are the only specialty that treats head neck and jaw muscles. (Today the name for a bad headache is a Migraine...even though only 12% of all headaches are true migraine and as we said 85%  are caused by muscle! Kind of like when Xerox was the only copy machine, we used to say give me a Xerox of this when today we say " give me a copy of this".
Also, sleep plays a very very important roll in managing headache. Headache patients all have trouble sleeping. They usually awaken several times per night.

HEADACHE IS COVERED UNDER YOUR MEDICAL INSURANCE..... NOT DENTAL INSURANCE.

Sleep Apnea: Dr. Ney made his first sleep apnea appliance in 1985 and has been treating sleep apnea and sleep disorders since then. The oral appliance is not the first treatment you should try, but if you cannot use the CPAP machine, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends the Oral Appliance.

Untreated sleep apnea can lead to coronary artery disease, weight gain, diabetes, kidney and or liver disease, day time sleepiness (and grotchyness) and sleep apnea is now closely associated with ALZEHIMERS DISEASE!

Consequently, you dont want to have untreated sleep apnea! 

THE ORAL APNEA APPLIANCE HAS A 90% SUCCESS RATE AND 90% OF THE PATIENTS WHO TRY IT CONTINUE TO WEAR IT. ONLY 50% OF THE PATIENTS WILL CONTINUE WITH THE CPAP.

ORAL SLEEP APNEA APPLIANCES ARE COVERED UNDER YOUR MEDICAL INSURANCE....NOT DENTAL INSURANCE

We look forward to seeing you!
