About Dr. Childs
About The Bullet And Dr Childs:
Dr. Mary Ann Childs, DMD
Dr. Mary Ann Childs had an early childhood dream of becoming a doctor and making those around her feel better, even if it was with a smile. She attended the University of South Carolina and obtained her first degree in Pharmacy in 1993. It was that start in medicine and an extensive study on the functions of the body and how drugs impact it, She went on to study Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. After graduating in 2000, Dr. Childs went on to study with the most highly respected dental institutes in the world studying and practicing restorative dentistry. Dr. Childs has been in private practice for 20 years and has had the opportunity to make thousands smile. During her practice she discovered an area of medicine that is not getting the attention it deserves. It is something we take for granted: oxygen. Because we cannot see oxygen and the way it gets to the body and tissues, we assume it happens for us. When Dr. Childs was introduced to dental sleep medicine in 2010, she was reluctant to practice it because it could cause bite changes. Just about every patient she saw in her adult restorative practice was a "TMJ Patient" and was in a splint. It was not until her family was tested with take home sleep studies that she realized they all were having airway issues, whether apnea or restrictions, and did not know it. The idiopathic health conditions they had were explained after seeing the size of their airways, and realizing what was happening at night to oxygen flow. Some of the health conditions ranged from fainting, preeclampsia twice, anxiety, depression, ADD/ ADHD, anemia, acid reflux, unexplainable stomach issues, eczema, just to name a few over their lifetime. The sleep studies showed Dr. Childs as mild, her husband as severe and one of her children as having a very low AHI as well. Children, by the way, should have no apneic events. So, by insurances definition, we would be "normal". Dr. Childs has never been interested in insurance dictating your health and has had to battle insurances her entire career to get treatments accepted because they don't want to take care of their clients unless the tooth or you are cracked in half! YOU are the best person to take control of your own health plan, you cannot count on anyone else to do this for you. Dr. Childs made it her mission to come up with a solution for people, that combined all she knew from the medical/dental world and combine it into a patent pending designed oral appliance that can be worn at night or during exercise or both! It covers all the teeth to minimize bite changes, it eliminates grinding and clenching, and it keeps the tongue from collapsing back and cutting off the airway while you sleep or exercise. It's easy to make in the privacy of your own home and is affordable.
