We are the only dental office in New Mexico that relies on a proven, science-backed approach to provide lasting relief from chronic sleep problems as well as jaw, head, and neck pain.
Dr. Coontz and Dr. Fischer began their careers as a general dentist and critical care nurse respectively, and they wanted to do more to help people before their sleep issues and chronic pain took a serious toll on their lives. Today, they combine their unique expertise with a scientifically-backed method, so their patients can achieve the comfort and health they deserve.
“Dr. Coontz has changed my life! I was in tears from years of pain and horrible tinnitus during my first visit for TMJ dysfunction and he was the first medical professional to give me hope. A year later and my jaw is on the mend (saving me from expensive surgery), my tinnitus is almost completely gone, and my sanity has been restored. He has also led me to other medical professionals that help with TMD that I had no idea existed in Albuquerque. He is an amazing doctor and I cannot recommend the Koala Center enough.”
“Dr. Coontz and his staff are not only professional but also very caring and thorough with preparations. I was very pleased with my mandibular appliance that improved the quality of my sleep. I highly recommend Koala Center for Sleep Disorders. May God bless them.”
“Dr. Coontz was able to help my daughter with her tmj and spent time explaining everything to us. Amina was also very kind and knowledgeable. We had a great experience at our appointment. Thank you all!”
Problems like snoring and sleep apnea can be caused by loose tissue found at the back of the throat. With a fast and pain-free Nightlase treatment, we can actually tighten this tissue to open up the airway, leading to better breathing during sleep, more restorative rest, and quieter nights for everyone.
