“Hi , I’ve had TMD for many years and have had multiple treatments and seen several Dr’s and wasn’t getting much relief. However, since I started seeing DDS Haley Vatcher on November 24, I’m beginning to see lots of improvement. I’ve been getting Botox injections and it has helped me tremendously. Dr. Vatcher is super amazing. She’s thorough, efficient and compassionate. She strives really hard to get relief for her patients. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Please go see her, if you’re suffering like I hv bn for over 10 years with this issue, she will definitely help put you on the road to recovery.” – S. Parker
“Changed my life. I was at the end of my rope with my chronic TMJ pain and daily headaches. Unable to even eat solid foods and had pain just from talking. I had to wrap my face and neck in ice packs 3 times a day and was taking 8 ibuprofen and 6 tylenol every day. I went to about a dozen different doctors, Dr. Meyers was the first to validate my experience and work with me to figure out a comprehensive treatment plan. After Dr. Meyers moved, Dr. Vatcher took over my care and she is wonderful. Today I am back to eating normal food, no more headaches, no more pain medication at all. The difference it has made in my life cannot be understated. If you have TMJ pain, this is the place. Look no further.” – S. Irving
“I have been receiving treatment from Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery, and I must commend Dr. Vatcher for her work in addressing my jaw and musculoskeletal issues related to hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. The combination of trigger point therapy and targeted Botox injections has significantly alleviated the painful knots in and around my face and jaw. The relief I have experienced under Dr. Vatcher’s care is profound, and I am grateful for her expertise. I fully intend to continue my treatment here and highly recommend their services to others facing similar challenges.” – K. Fletcher
