Are you getting a good night sleep? Feeling tired today and needing that extra cup of coffee?

What many people don't know is that Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common and serious sleep disorder that causes someone to stop breathing. The airway becomes repeatedly blocked, causing limited air to reach the lungs. When this happens, the body and brain become oxygen deprived and it may cause you to wake up. This may happen a couple times a night and in more sever cases a couple hundred times a night.

We have shared a video below that briefly reviews OSA and what that means exactly. The next time you are in the office for an appointment please don't hesitate to ask any one of our staff members about your sleep 1

We so appreciate our team here at Palo Cedro and Cottonwood Dental Care and we want to share the love and shed some light on our newest team member Bonnie!

Bonnie has worked with us here at Doctor Farrell's office for nearly two years now, assisting doctor and working as our go to oral sleep appliance personnel. Prior to her blessing us with her contagious
upbeat attitude and excellent work ethic, Bonnie worked for five years specializing in TMJ and Oral Sleep Medicine at a specialist's office.

When Bonnie is not hard at work, you can find her exploring the great outdoors, whether it is hiking or working in her beautiful garden. She also enjoy's making jewelry and traveling!

Bonnie brings bright smiles and flowers from her garden each day she shows up to work! We love you Bonnie and we thank you for always being such a team player here at the office!

New 5 Star Review Jennifer is my dental hygienist at Dr. Bruce Farrell's office. Since going to her my dental health has improved in spite of my lax ways. She is always positive, and never gives a lecture. She does, however, offer ideas for improvement. Like all of Dr. Farrell's staff, she's wonderful.

New 5 Star Review Extremely nice and knowledgeable staff. Wonderful dental office and so caring.

New 5 Star Review Everyone who works there is great. Very professional! Showing me on the screen why I need the procedure and my choices including doing nothing! No pressure to do what they suggest but let me know all that I need to know so I can make an educated decision.

New 5 Star Review Got me in right on time, in fact a little early. Before beginning I was told exactly what was going to be done and what to expect. Made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. The office is very clean and a pleasant atmosphere, with light music playing low in the background.

New 5 Star Review friendly, efficient, clean. discomfort 0 - none. Would recommend Dr Farrell

New 5 Star Review Staff was very friendly and made me feel immediately at ease. I felt very confident in what Dr. Farrell and I discussed as the best course of action for my needs. Office surroundings were neat and clean and comfortable.
