In Dr. Stern’s practice, working together for wellness is more than just a tagline; it’s a way of life.
Case in point: This first-hand account of how the good doctor’s protocols wound up saving his patient from a potentially deadly condition.
I live in: Howell
My husband and I started going to Dr. Stern: 20 years ago
While under his care the most remarkable thing happened: Dr. Stern had his staff complete a risk assessment of sleep apnea for my husband and myself. Based on the questionnaire results, Dr. Stern had us both complete an oxygen saturation study at home overnight to determine if we would benefit from a dental appliance or a referral to a pulmonologist/sleep center. Our results came back at the same time. My results showed no problem, however, my husband’s results showed moderate to severe sleep apnea. My husband was referred by Dr. Stern to a pulmonologist and sleep center for further testing. Dr. Stern even came in on a Sunday to speak with my husband because he was so concerned about my husband’s health. Thankfully, through Dr. Stern’s interventions, my husband who was diagnosed with moderate to severe sleep apnea now sleeps with a CPAP machine to maintain his oxygen levels at night. I feel that Dr. Stern’s intervention has saved my husband from having a stroke or heart attack. I am forever thankful for Dr. Stern’s (and his staff’s) interventions.
Dr. Stern is a stand-out dentist because: He is very caring, dedicated, knowledgeable and hard working. He loves being a dentist!
When it comes to oral healthcare, Dr. Stern taught me: That poor oral hygiene can lead to other help problems.
When it comes to a healthy smile and good oral healthcare, I tell my friends and family: Dr. Stern is a great dentist!
