SLEEPwell Longview

I’ve been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea for over 10 years, but could never be comfortable wearing a CPAP. I heard about Sleepwell Longview on KTBB radio. I simply called, met with Dr. Kirby and his amazing staff, performed an at-home sleep study, got measured for my dental appliance, and soon, it was ready. My life has been changed, I can sleep soundly at night, and my wife is no longer planning to send me to the guest room. My experience with Sleepwell Longview has been nothing short of outstanding! If you struggle with a CPAP, give Sleepwell a try! You’ll be glad you did!

I was very impressed with the service and atmosphere at Vaca & Kirby Dental. Their offices were beautiful and clean, and their staff was very friendly and helpful. I visited them for a new patient exam and cleaning, and I have to say it’s the first time I have ever left my dentist feeling like I had a complete understanding of the health and structure of my smile. The hygienist was extremely friendly and walked me through every x-ray and my dental history, and Dr. Kirby was very courteous and answered all of my questions. I will definitely recommend Vaca & Kirby Dental to my friends and family!

This practice is the best dental office I have ever been to. I actually live in New York City, but plan my trips back home to visit Chris Kirby and his amazing staff for my dental needs. I’m one of those few people who enjoy the dentist, but I can say that anyone needing wonderful, thorough, comprehensive dental care….THESE ARE YOUR GUYS AND GALS! The hygienists are absolutely wonderful and very good at their craft. The front desk staff are so helpful, courteous and make you feel like you are at home! Give them a call and schedule a cleaning and see how wonderful going to the dentist can be!!!

NO ONE is more afraid of the dentist or a needle than me, but I can tell you from first-hand experience, Dr. Kirby is the best!! I was in need of several procedures and insisted on being sedated for all of the work. Dr. Kirby put my fears to rest by setting up a person to come in and sedate me for the lengthy procedures. The last two visits, I even allowed him to put a needle in my gums….it’s a miracle. A caring attitude and patience from each staff member is so welcoming, and I look forward to each visit no longer in fear of the dentist. From cleaning to crowns, Vaca & Kirby Dental is the place to have all your dental needs met. Thanks, Dr. Kirby.

When we explored the idea of veneers for our son, we expected it to make a big difference in his appearance. What we did not realize is what a difference it would make in his self-confidence and overall self-esteem. Dr. Kirby and his staff gave us expert guidance through the entire process. We feel we could not have possibly found better dental care for our son.

Trusting Dr. Kirby and his staff with my dental health care and restoration of my smile is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Dr. Kirby practices in a caring, Christian environment with the highest personal standards of integrity, skill and excellence in medical care and the art of dentistry. He listened to my needs and concerns and tirelessly developed an individual, comprehensive treatment plan with no pressure or deadlines. Once complete, he had installed crowns, a permanent bridge and porcelain veneers, all seamlessly created and incorporated into a beautiful and naturally refreshed smile. At every juncture, he explained the process, and we made decisions jointly. There was no inconvenience of visiting other specialists because Dr. Kirby, being experienced and certified in a variety of procedures I needed, could do everything from his office. Best of all, never did I have any pain or discomfort whatsoever throughout the process. Dr. Kirby and his staff genuinely care about their patients and treat you with the greatest respect, compassion and professionalism. You know your health and well-being is their utmost concern.

Thank you so much for improving my life by perfecting my smile! I came to your office with a deep-rooted fear of the dentist that eventually resulted in embarrassment and self-consciousness any time I smiled. Your compassionate and empathetic care not only put me completely at ease, it made the smile of my dreams possible. Your attention to detail and pursuit of perfection have given me back the confidence in my appearance that I had missed for so long. My cosmetic results have far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend you to anyone who’s ever considered cosmetic dentistry!

You and your entire staff are to be commended on your commitment to excellence.

After a home sleep study, my doctor ordered a CPAP for me. I could not tolerate it and took the CPAP back to supplier. My ENT doctor recommended SLEEPwell. I was fitted for an appliance and wore it for a month. No problems with sleeping with the device. My wife said that instead of snoring and making the windows rattle, now, if I did snore, it was very light. Today SLEEPwell made a small adjustment to eliminate snoring completely. After 10 years sleeping in the spare bedroom, time to move back into the master bedroom. Yeah!

I loved the way Dr. Kirby and staff (especially Laci) make you feel like part of a family. Very caring, and kind. Made me feel extremely cared for and valued as a human life. Both went above and beyond by helping me after office hours. I only experienced the sleep apnea side, but would definitely recommend this office to dentistry patients as well, as I’m positive the treatment carries over.

About 5 years ago I was diagnosed with MS. After additional tests, my diagnosis was changed to Transverse Myelitis, a rare and complicated disease in the MS family. I have managed to fight back from paralysis on the left side of my body by turning to a more natural lifestyle. During the extensive testing I underwent, it was discovered that I had Sleep Apnea. I received a prescription for a C-PAP Machine that I wore at night. I was already miserable from fighting TM and this just added to my misery. I quit using the C-PAP machine but my wife told me that I was actually stopping breathing and gasping while I slept. (And my wife did not!) We heard the advertisement for SLEEPwell Longview and my wife called for an appointment. After receiving my device, I began using it and saw results immediately. With Transverse Myelitis I am very in tune with my body and health. I now wake up feeling refreshed and rested thanks to my device. It has helped me in my battle against this disease, TM. Deeper and better sleep has removed much stress from my internal organs and throughout my body. I cannot stress enough how this simple, easy appliance affected my over all health. The people in this office are some of the most genuine and nicest people you could ever meet. When I found out about their support of our veterans, it made me love them even more.

I have suffered from sleep apnea for 10 years. During that time, I struggled with the discomfort of doing CPAP therapy. My primary issue was remaining compliant with using it every night. The noise, maintenance, and maintaining a good seal while wearing the mask brought me to a point where I stopped using the device altogether. I was on Facebook one day and came across the ad promoting SLEEPwell Longview. I did some research and read a number of reviews about the use of dental appliances for the treatment of sleep apnea. I made an appointment with SLEEPwell Longview and was very impressed with Dr. Vaca and his staff. Laci did an outstanding job explaining the pros and cons of using a dental appliance for treatment. I was able to make an informed decision which lead me to proceed with this life changing way of resolving my sleep apnea. From explaining how to do the in home sleep study to making a mold for my device, Laci did an outstanding job ensuring all of my questions and concerns were addressed. As I write this review, I am now sleeping without snoring and gasping for air. The ease of care and use of this device has enable me to remain 100% compliant in use. If you suffer from sleep apnea, I highly recommend you at least schedule an evaluation to see for yourself the benefits of this viable option for treatment.

Last year, I lost a leg in a tractor accident. I called to inform them I couldn’t keep an appointment. Soon after that, Dr. Kirby, Mary, and Kristi showed up with baskets of goodies and encouragement, it really helped me over some tough times. I have never known such a group of loving and caring professionals in and out of the office. I am really grateful to have found this wonderful team. Thanks!

It’s hard to put it into words but when its in your nature not to really prioritize something until something is wrong with it and causing you pain, learning how to reframe how you prioritize something as simple as your teeth is as priceless as it is valuable. I will always appreciate Dr. Kirby and his incredible team for not only their perfectionist mentality and professionalism but for their bedside manner and how I feel like family now
