Patient Review by Carole C
Like other reviewers here, I’ve been with Dr. Tekle since The Beginning. Other reviewers mention Dr. Elliot Shapiro. To invoke his name is to bring him back, and always with a winning smile. He was ahead of his time with all things dentistry, everything he said was proven in the test of time. One of his finest achievements was bringing Dr. Tekle to us. My story is, I had been recommended crowns long before I actually had them. Teeth needed to be straightened first, I had adult braces. Cost of cosmetic dentistry was out of reach for me. I had Medical Savings Account on the job. It’s not insurance, it’s before tax money, set aside money, medical and dental. I took unused account money for crowns, late in the year. Dr. Tekle worked with me to strategize the timing, there are a few weeks between form-fitting, and the actual finished product. Perfect billing solution if you time it right. What took me so long? Actually it’s because I foolishly hadn’t signed up for Medical Savings, it had been available to me for years. Dental insurance too. Dental insurance doesn’t cover cosmetic of any kind, but most insurance covers needed crowns. But I used the Medical savings account and had a winning smile at long last. Dr. Tekle is a skilled cosmetic dentist, you'll be delighted with results. You'll say like everyone does, what took me so long? Dr. Tekle would be just the dentist for a new family, you get dental education with every visit, so valuable to children. She’s the perfect person to teach dental health, she takes the time to explain. Chairside assistants, office staff, hygienists, always and forever—are warm and give wonderful attention to patients. Hygiene is of utmost importance, state of the art equipment and comfort sedation, current techniques used by people who care. Rest assured, you are with the best in Dr. Tekle's Office.

Patient Review by David P
I have sleep apnea, and I really like my CPAP machine. But it's a pain in the patootie when I travel. It's bulky and at my age dragging it and luggage around is more trouble than I need. So I asked my ENT about an oral appliance and he recommended Dr. Tekle. Getting fitted took a couple three hours over two visits measuring breathing and trying various means of keeping my air way open. Dr. Tekle was very careful to make sure she got it right. Then after another sleep test has come more adjustments. I'll have three more visits to make sure everything is right.

I was referred to Dr. Tekle by a co-woker, this was one of the best thing that happened to me. I was suffering from sleep apnea and refused to use the cpap machine. I was averaging about 3-4 hours of sleep a night. I was falling asleep in meetings, at my desk, and watching television on the couch was a joke. My co-workers would joke on how long it would take me to fall asleep. I made an appointment with Dr. Tekle and my life has totally changed and everyone around me has noticed. Dr. Tekle fitted me for an Oral Sleep Appliance. OMG...I can't really put into words the difference this appliance has improved my sleeping, I sleep on average about 6-8 hours a night now. I'm no longer falling asleep in meetings, at my desk, and I can actually watch an entire show without falling asleep. If you have sleep apnea issues I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Tekle and her staff and the Oral Sleep Appliance.
