I think the practice is very family friendly. I come here and my wife comes here and my son comes here, we’ve been coming here for many years. I find the care to be excellent.
My son was having a hard time sleeping, and as a result, we thought that there was some behavioral problems in class. He wasn’t paying attention as well, he was being a little disruptive, and the behavior was just generally not what we had normally known or experienced with him.
The Healthy Start was presented to us by Dr. Juarez as a remedy to some of that. My understanding of it is, it has to do with the palate and the bite of the child, and how that affects sleep pattern. The residual effects of sleep pattern or bad sleep pattern being, you’re not learning well in school, they’re not paying attention in class, and things like that. When we talked to Dr. Juarez, she was telling us that because of his overbite, he has a little bit of an overbite, and the overbite and the way the palate was forming could be causing him to not sleep as well.
The Healthy Start is really a corrective procedure which is really non invasive, I guess you could call it, because it’s really just putting in a bite guard in the mouth, and there’s one for daytime and one for nighttime. Phillip now wears those. The palate’s improved, the overbite has been reduced, he sleeps much better. Sleeps through the night, very rarely getting up, and his classroom behavior has improved, and his grades have gone up as a result of that.
We see it as a real boon and it didn’t require any braces or anything like that. Actually, my understanding is, it may be a preventative to braces. We’re all on top of that.
