"I have a particular emphasis in my part of our practice on treating those people challenged with Snoring Problems or Obstructive Sleep Apnea...especially those who cannot tolerate a CPAP. My years of training in this special area allow me to work with your physician as part of a medical team in your diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care. I am one of a small number of dentists who have the extra training and technological equipment to evaluate an individual's airway volume dynamics and how it is affected by various treatment options in Oral Appliance Therapy. I find it very rewarding working as a team to help improve someone's quality of life and health!"
