” I wanted to explain the HUGE difference the treatment I had received has made in my life. I had 3-4 headaches, per day, and shoulder, neck, and jaw pain for 20 years until I started treatment with TMJ Therapy Center. Braces have been a part of my treatment and I have noticed a big change in my level of pain since about a month into the treatment. I have virtually no jaw, neck, or shoulder pain anymore and only get about one-two headaches a month as opposed to 3-4 a every day. Life is much better  when it is pain-free. I am so grateful to the staff at the TMJ Therapy Center because this treatment has improved my quality of life so much and the whole staff is friendly and helpful.”

”I am so thankful for finding Dr. Kristina and the TMJ SleepTherapy Centre. I had no idea that her type of practice even existed. I struggled for years with teeth grinding, wearing away at my teeth and jaw. I was barely sleeping at night and often napped during the day. I often would find myself yawning during the day. I woke up with migraines and severe pain in my face from grinding. My back and neck was also in significant pain. After my consultation with Dr. Kristina I learned the root of my problems. The first day after wearing my mouth guards and therapy received by Dr. Kristina’s office… I haven’t taken a mid-day nap, my back and neck are improving and zero headaches. I wake up refreshed. It is an incredible feeling to regain my life back. Thanks to Dr. Kristina my quality of life has drastically improved.”

”Several months ago I suffered from sudden excruciating jaw pain that landed me in the emergency room I was prescribed pain medication and arranged an emergency dental appointment. The dentist stated the only cure for my problem would be surgery on my jaw for TMJ. I went to see a specialist and was aghast at the model jaw I viewed with the plastic piece that would be inserted in my jaw through surgery. The specialist thought that I might be able to avoid surgery but only for a few years. He recommended Dr. Kristina Mc Quire as a last resort to surgery.

I made an appointment immediately. To say I was depressed about my prognosis would be an understatement. On the day of my appointment I entered the waiting room of patients and proceeded to the sign in desk. I was incredibly stressed and could feel my entire body tense until several patients in the waiting area smiled at me; and one even said hello. I had never met any of these people before and have never been greeted with such warmth from patients I didn’t know. I returned a smile and a hello and proceeded to sign in. The gracious person who registered me also greeted me with a warm welcome.

Soon it was time to see Dr. Kristina. As I entered her office I was struck by her professional demeanor, her genuine smile, and warm personality. I felt instantly at ease. I was already aware of her esteemed qualifications. Dr. Kristina gave me a thorough evaluation and stated t that she felt confident that she could help me.
Several months later I have completed my treatment with Dr. Kristina and I am absolutely astounded at what she was able to do for me. Let me mention first, that I received a call from the specialist’s office who recommended Dr. Kristina a few months ago, to ask me when I would like to schedule surgery. So I guess his office really didn’t think I could forgo surgery after all. And soon after, when I went to my dentist for a teeth cleaning , he was stunned when I informed him that I wasn’t going to have surgery and I wasn’t having any pain.

Up until this point, it has been easy to put my story to paper; but I will admit to you right now I am feeling intense joyful emotions that have moistened my eyes because of the gratitude I feel for Dr. Kristina. Dr. Kristina’s treatment worked perfectly for me in countless ways! First, and foremost, I am basically pain free and when I do experience pain it is rare, fleeting, and so very slight. My regular excruciating migraines that I have suffered from for at least a decade have disappeared completely. My severe allergies improved drastically. Additionally, two highly recommended books have been life changing for me. I looked forward to every treatment visit with Dr. Kristina because she and her assistants gave me superior service and always with such a joyous and energetic spirit. The icing on the cake was that I could always get timely responses to any concerns I had through texts.

I am absolutely ecstatic for what Dr. Kristina has done for me and I talk about what she has done for me to anyone who will listen. My final follow-up was just the other day and I am saddened that I won’t have to see one of the best doctors that I have ever had anymore.”
