I came initially for help on getting device for sleep apnea but then got help with my tmj. Very grateful to have connected with Doctor Bottner. She referred me to physical. Therapy and had a mri done. The therapy has been very helpful and the mri gave valuable information.

Very knowledgeable about the process for the mouth guard. The pros and cons. Explained what is wrong in my mouth so I do not get enough air through there. How it can and will over time move my jaw and teeth.

She explained very thoroughly. I was so glad to have see who I did for the first. I had no idea at all about the process and see if it was a option I might want to have instead of the sleep apnea machine.

Dr Patricia explained how the jaw and jaw muscle work and what can happen when it does not work properly. She shared pictures of the jaw in a pamphlet and exercises to do to help with my issue. Both the assistant and dentist took time to explain what they were doing and answer my questions.

July 24, 2021
The information that the dentist gave me was helpful, but her bedside manner left much to be desired. I felt like she was annoyed by what I could and could not do given my jaw pain. That attitude was unhelpful. I already felt junky about how hard it is, so that didn't help. The tips and tools that she has given me have been helpful so far though.

Dr. Fernandes is so wonderful. I have followed her from Edina, to Bloomington to Roseville. I live in Richfield and am willing to drive to Roseville because she is that great. She is kind and courteous. I just love her. She cares about me!!! And knows who I am and a bit about me. I cannot tell you how important that is to me.

Testimonials

"I have had my appliance for about a month now. The difference it has made in the quality of my sleep is quite literally remarkable! I sleep sounder with far fewer wake events during the night. Best of all, I feel much better rested in the morning. My only regret is that I didn't visit the excellent Facial Pain Center team to pursue my sleep apnea dental appliance treatment option sooner."
