I have had an ongoing battle with sleep apnea and snoring. I have had sleep tests, cpap machines, oral devices custom made...Nothing worked. I was tired, irritable and didn’t have the energy to keep up with my responsibilities. Then I found Dr. Abdulla! I was a little skeptical at first because I had already been to a sleep specialist dentist to help me and it didn’t work. I am so happy I gave Dr. Abdulla a chance. She takes the time to explains things and doesn’t just give you the device and say - “Good Luck” - She works with you to make sure it is working - Mine worked the first night I wore it. I was snoring a little after the first week, but not like before and I woke up rested for the first time in I don’t know how long!!! She takes the time to meet with you - massages the face muscles to make sure there is no pain. I am so happy with her and her staff – I could go on and on....So if you have any issues with Sleep Apnea or Snoring - CALL DR. ABDULLA NOW!
Dr Abdulla and the office staff are warm and friendly. I have been seeing her for both sleep apnea and as a dentist. I am sleeping better and I have found an excellent dentist.🙂
This is the best office I've ever been to. The home-like and warm atmosphere makes me feel very relaxed whenever I go there. The professional staff and Dr. Abdulla really changed my life by attending to my sleep apnea and dental needs. Dr. Abdulla made me a sleep apnea device which helped me sleep a lot better. Her gentle approach and knowledge in the field makes me feel very comfortable. It has been the best decision I've made.
Let me add another 5 star review to Dr. Abdulla's Yelp. I had sleep apnea and for the last few years have used a s.a. machine. To say that I disliked the machine would be an understatement.
Dr. Abdulla and her staff were just terrific. She made me a plastic mouth appliance for the s.a. It was done in about 5 stages over a period of weeks.....I would use each stage for 2 weeks and then move on to the next stage.
If I used that miserable s.a. machine for 4 hours a night I was lucky. Now I use Dr. Abdulla's oral device all night, every night.
The sleep apnea is now history. I couldn't be happier.

I couldn't landed in better hands. I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea and my cardiologist recommended Dr. Abdulla. From day one , as I walked in her office, has been a calming experience. Her staff (Patricia and Jackie)...are also outstanding, making sure all the time that you are ok.
I tried the cpap machine in the past and I couldn't use it. This device works miracles, I sleep better and I can take it with me when I travel for business. She also offered me a weight loos program that I couldn't do due to a personal chronic illness, along with the sleep apnea device, but I heard that it worked for many people.
So one night, I had a toothache, and I got Dr. Abdulla's cell number, so I gave her a call asking if it was Ok to take certain type of meds for the pain. She called me a few minutes later suggesting a different medication for my pain. A truly savior...an excellent professional who cares about her patients and not like the others that want your money only.
I will go back to her for any dental problems in the future, with my eyes closed. A great professional and a great dentist.

Dr. Abdullah has cared for my teeth for years. She is a highly skilled dentist, gentle and soft spoken. She and her staff ensure that any procedures are comfortable and pain free. She has made a bite guard to treat my teeth grinding, and customized it even further to make my dental care the best possible.
As a medical professional, I have contact with many patients under her care for sleep apnea. The high level of service and professionalism provided by Dr. Abdullah and her staff is truly exceptional.

I went to Dr. Abdulla to have two fillings replaced. She was very gentle and kind. She talked me through every step and I felt no pain. My fillings are perfect! I have also gone in to get my teeth cleaned. The hygienist was excellent. Her front office manager is also great. She was very helpful in sorting out my insurance. Dr. Abdulla will be my dentist for a long time.

I went to see Dr. Abdulla for TMJ and sleep apnea. I had recently got back from a trip and thought I had hurt my neck on a pillow, I had been to see a chiropractor 3 times to no avail.
She believed my neck hurt so bad from the TMJ. (I just thought I had a clicking jaw). I was going to go for physical therapy. She said just give me 4 visits for TMJ and if you are not feeling better then go to PT. My neck was feeling better after 2 visits! My neck pain is gone and I am sleeping so much better since I started wearing the mouth piece for sleep apnea. I highly recommend Dr. Abdulla!

Firstly, I want to say that seeing Dr. Ann Abdulla was a life changing experience for me and I am very grateful to her and the staff. I have had diagnosed sleep apnea for over 14 years and have been using the c-pap to treat my disease. over a year ago I was so discourage to be tied to an electrical outlet to get a good night sleep. So I went into my Kaiser Doctor and was referred to Dr. Abdulla to be fitted for a dental device for sleep apnea. The whole process was a bit discouraging for me because upon adjusting the dental device I had an outer ear burning sensation and this caused me to have to be titrated at an extremely slow rate. i wanted to give up but I didn't because Dr. Abdulla and her staff is very kind and always called to remind me that I had an appointment the day before. So when the device was adjusted to a level the Dr. Abdulla was comfortable with, I went to Orange County Sleep Center to have a sleep study. After my results came in I saw my primary sleep doctor from Kaiser and he was very pleased with my results. My study showed scientific proof that my apnea events went down from 10 events an hour with c-pap, to 3 apnea events an hour with the dental device. My Kaiser doctor told me that my sleep apnea disorder is clinically resolved with the dental device. I am so happy that I perseverred and I owe that solely to the professionalism, honesty, and kindness of Dr. Abdulla's office. If I would have gone to my other dentist, who I no longer see, to get my dental device I would have not followed through to the end. I recommend anyone who has sleep apnea in the Orange County area to see Dr. Abdulla and see if the dental device is a solution for your sleep apnea. She told me that many clients have better results with the dental device compared to c pap. Also, I just started to see Dr. Abdulla for dentistry as well. I ended coverage with my previous dentist in San Clemente. I now see Dr. Abdullah and discovered that me previous dentist was dishonest. I kind of felt that before but now I am certain. So, I appreciate you, Dr. Abdulla, and your staff. You have truly changed my life.

I have always snored very loudly. I tried many different solutions, but with little relief. When my wife started talking about sleeping in another room, I knew I had to do something. When I saw Dr. Abdulla, she indicated that there can be several reasons for snoring, but it can be remedied. Sometimes very easily.
I had previously had a sleep study that did not indicate there were any major problems, but Dr. Abdulla suggested that a dental device (i.e. mouth guard) could solve the problem. She was able to take the molds of my teeth that day and with 2-3 weeks, I had the mouth guard.
What a difference! My wife said I barely snored the first night and it only took one adjustment to eliminate the snoring completely!
Dr Abdulla accepted my insurance and I only had to make the co-payment. No surgery, No sleeping is a certain position or other remedy. Just a fast, simple solution to eliminate the problem. It has been a year since I got the mouth guard and it is still working! My wife believes that Dr. Abdulla is amazing!
I would recommend Dr. Abdulla to everyone. She is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. If you want to stop snoring or see if you can get rid of your CPAP machine, call Dr. Abdulla and she how she can help sleep and live better.
