Firstly, I want to say that seeing Dr. Ann Abdulla was a life changing experience for me and I am very grateful to her and the staff. I have had diagnosed sleep apnea for over 14 years and have been using the c-pap to treat my disease. over a year ago I was so discouraged to be tied to an electrical outlet to get a good night sleep. So I went into my Kaiser Doctor and was referred to Dr. Abdulla to be fitted for a dental device for sleep apnea. The whole process was a bit discouraging for me because upon adjusting the dental device I had an outer ear burning sensation and this caused me to have to be titrated at an extremely slow rate. I wanted to give up but I didn't because Dr. Abdulla and her staff is very kind and always called to remind me that I had an appointment the day before. So when the device was adjusted to a level the Dr. Abdulla was comfortable with, I went to Orange County Sleep Center to have a sleep study. After my results came in I saw my primary sleep doctor from Kaiser and he was very pleased with my results. My study showed scientific proof that my apnea events went down from 10 events an hour with c-pap, to 3 apnea events an hour with the dental device. My Kaiser doctor told me that my sleep apnea disorder is clinically resolved with the dental device. I am so happy that I persevered and I owe that solely to the professionalism, honesty, and kindness of Dr. Abdulla's office. If I would have gone to my other dentist, who I no longer see, to get my dental device I would have not followed through to the end. I recommend anyone who has sleep apnea in the Orange County area to see Dr. Abdulla and see if the dental device is a solution for your sleep apnea. She told me that many clients have better results with the dental device compared to c pap. Also, I just started to see Dr. Abdulla for dentistry as well. I ended coverage with my previous dentist in San Clemente. I now see Dr. Abdullah and discovered that me previous dentist was dishonest. I kind of felt that before but now I am certain. So, I appreciate you, Dr. Abdulla, and your staff. You have truly changed my life.B.k.Feb 12 2020
Five stars! Dr. Abdulla is highly skilled, gentle, caring and goes the extra mile to make sure her patients are well cared for. Her attention to detail is highly evident in the warm way that she truly cares for her patients. I have had cleaning, work on cavities, a mouth guard for grinding, and general dental care performed by her, and her wonderful staff. Her staff are great too, and the waiting room is calming and relaxing. I would highly recommend her for general dental work, and the expert care she provides for sleep apnea patients. I personally travel over 50 miles to see her, as I have moved, and I trust my teeth to her skilled hands. Your smile will thank you for choosing Dr. Abdulla!Peter.HFeb 7 2020
I had sleep apnea and for the last few years have used a cpap machine. To say that I disliked the machine would be an understatement. Dr. Abdulla and her staff were just terrific. She made me a plastic mouth appliance for the s.a. It was done in about 5 stages over a period of weeks.....I would use each stage for 2 weeks and then move on to the next stage. If I used that miserable cpap. machine for 4 hours a night I was lucky. Now I use Dr. Abdulla's oral device all night, every night. The sleep apnea is now history. I couldn't be happier.Anne.PFeb 4 2020
I am so pleased with the results of my ProSomnus dental guard for my sleep apnea. Dr. Abdulla was recommended to me by Hoag Sleep Center following my sleep test results. I truly wish I would have done this sooner! My husband wishes I did, too ;) I definitely sleep better and do not require a nap to get thru my day. I found Dr. Abdulla to be very knowledgeable & compassionate in her approach to treating my sleep apnea. Jacquie is very helpful and friendly at the front desk. The office is calming and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Abdullah.BillJan 27 2020
I have suffered from Sleep Apnea since the early 1990's when I was told I gasped for air at night. Had a sleep study performed and went with a CPAP machine for 7 yrs. Finally decided to have the throat surgery and was successful in getting off the CPAP machine. Well I got older and body/neck has changed, so I decided to look into a mouthguard. Found one that used plastic bands to work but was not really designed for the work I thought it could handle. Meanwhile my wife started to "Purr" louder and more often, so I told her she needed to look into this. She went to our PCP and she recommended my wife head over to do a sleep study. The place recommended Dr. Ann Abdulla and she took impressions and guided me with a personal mouthguard that when she used it the first night, I had to check to see if my wife was breathing. My wife awoke refreshed and no lunchtime naps were needed anymore. My wife then suggested I go to her. First meeting Dr. Abdulla was great & Explained everything to me. She took impressions and about 3 weeks later I got my mouthguard. I chose the adjustable one to fine tune it as I got used to it. Us men's start to sag in our neck areas and this is where the sleep apnea affects us. It truly is a "Silent Killer" putting stress on your heart and raising Blood Pressure. I give Dr. Abdulla Excellent ratings as someone that desires a truly "rewarding night of sleep"!Pearl.ZJan 23 2020
