What Our Patients Have To Say About Us
"Update: Eight months ago I was fitted for my appliance thru Dr Chatfield. I'm happy to report that it's working! I'm feeling more rested and waking up earlier several times a week! My recent sleep study showed a huge improvement, 17 episodes of sleep apnea down to 6!! This will translate to a longer life, less chance of dementia, less chance of heart disease, etc... Again, I highly recommend this caring staff. December 2020: Do it for your health! If you feel like you aren't getting enough sleep, you’re likely right. The technology and treatment that Dr. Chatfield offers blew my mind. I just got my appliance but I have every confidence that the treatment will improve my sleep and my health. Dr Chatfield and his staff are wonderful. Highly recommend."
"Seriously the nicest people. We felt so welcome and taken care of. My son is 7 and the way they speak and approach him relieved any stress he was feeling. We’ll get the appliance in a few weeks so I can’t speak to that yet, but the appointments to get it ordered were amazing. I’ve talked to other Dr’s about a similar appliance and 1. They were not nearly as friendly and kind and 2. They were double the price and had no payment plans. They have made this accessible to so many families because they really want to help. I’m so thankful I found them. Thank you guys!!!"
"I had a very pleasant experience at Dr. Jeremy Chatfield’s office today. The office staff was very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, and very open to questions. I was greeted immediately and promptly escorted into my appointment. The staff was informative and well versed in their field of knowledge. Dr. Chatfield was incredible and very knowledgeable. I feel he was very thorough in explaining the findings and diagnosis. He took the time to answer all my questions. Overall, I had a great experience!"
"Dr. Chatfield and Miss Mary are so welcoming. My children look forward to their appointments. They run up the walk the minute the vehicle doors are open.When initially calling, Mary explained the process of the appliances & made sure my questions were answered. Dr. Chatfield listened to my children & their imaginative ideas. He even played tag with them! Thank you, both, for always welcoming our crazy!"
"Dr. Chatfield and staff were amazing! From arrival to end of consultation, I was met with a level of professionalism that made my visit a very enjoyable one. Dr. Chatfield’s expertise in the field of sleep apnea is unparalleled. A big thank you to everyone!"
"I highly recommend Just Breathe DDS to anyone with young kids. Even if you don’t think your child is having issues with breathing or sleep you should still take them in for an assessment. We were able to start early intervention for my daughters crowded teeth. We had no idea that her small pallet may also be causing what we thought were allergies with her nasal congestion as well as some struggles with her speech development. I am so happy that we are able to start her young to avoid major orthodontic work when she’s older. Plus, these guys are amazing with kids! My daughter loves your visits here."
"I have a lot of trouble sleeping and went to see Dr. Chatfield for and exam. I was bit reluctant to spend more money after a failed sleep test, but the info and actionable steps that he gave me was more than worth it. He didn't just try to sell me an expensive appliance; he gave me mouth exercises to do and other things that have noticeably helped. I also LOVE the Theta bed they have. It has made a huge difference in my stress level, focus, and sleep. Ask them about it!"

"We are absolutely thrilled that our Family practitioner referred us here for our son's sleeping issues. He's 13yo and has had difficulty sleeping for many years. Dr. Chatfield gave him some techniques that provided immediate relief while we work on making some long-term changes to correct the problem. Mary, in the front office, is as nice as can be and Dr. Chatfield is amazing at making our son feel comfortable and capable. We highly recommend Just Breathe."
"I absolutely love Dr. Chatfield's approach to sleep apnea, TMJ, and more. The concept that our bodies can heal ourselves without meds or using apparatus forever is so refreshing. And they're AMAZING with the kids! So happy we found Just Breathe."

I am receiving laser treatments for my severe TMJ issues and am having remarkable results! I highly recommend this office!"
"I cannot say enough good things about Just Breathe DDS. Dr. Chatfield and his staff are very friendly and very good at what they do. They are always willing to answer the questions that I have or let me stop in if I have concerns about my device. I have only been going there for 4 months and no longer have sleep apnea. I am very pleased with how things have progressed so far. I recommend Just Breathe DDS to everyone that I come across that has issues with sleep apnea. They are amazing!"
"One conversation about breathing has impacted so much. This has already helped reduce my daughter’s anxiety. I can’t wait for our devices. This is life changing! Thank you Dr. Chatfield!

"Our whole experience here has been wonderful. Dr. Chatfield is extremely knowledgeable in his field, he is also incredibly kind and was so patient with my young son. Likewise, Mary has been so helpful from the beginning, as well as all throughout our initial appointment. I’m relieved my son is receiving excellent treatment for his sleeping issues and having this office to guide us through it all has given me such peace of mind."

"Dr. Chattfield and Mary have been so great to work with my daughter and her sensory challenges. Candid has been a great fit for our family and with the flexibility of office visits and treatments. We're so glad we pursued Just Breathe."
"Our first experience was very pleasant. All procedures, were explained, with patience and kindness. CT results were reviewed in layman's terms. Aftercare was written out for my 87 year young mother to understand and follow. Equipment was lent out so to be able to continue treatment between appointments.. I would recommend Just Breathe to all!"
"I would highly encourage anyone experiencing sleep apnea or think they may be experiencing it to give Just Breathe DDS a call.
Dr. Chatfield and Mary have truly made a difference in my life with the treatment I'm receiving. It was seamless, and I was able to start treatment within a few months of initially working with them. Over the past few months, I've noticed a comparable difference in my sleepy quality and health overall. Thank you both so much!!"
"Very knowledgeable. Comfortable setting and his assistant is awesome. Highly recommended!!! I ended up doing the laser treatment for snoring and it's quick and painless. They are gental and didn't feel a thing. Everytime someone hears "laser" they assume it's painful. Not at all!!
-follow up. No more snoring. I can't say enough about this treatment. It's painless and effective. Must do."
"The Vivos DNA treatment has noticeably helped my daytime fatigue. I've only been doing it for 10 months but plan to continue. Dr. Chatfield and Mary have gone above and beyond to help me, they answer all my questions patiently and kindly."
