Though sleep apnea management using a dental device in the mouth instead of a CPAP machine has been around since 1986, it remains largely unknown in the medical community. With efficacy rates ranging from 75-85% and compliance rates near 90%, using this therapy should be a no-brainer and it truly is “sleep apnea management the easy way” as our slogan reads.
As challenging as it is to find physicians aware of this sleep apnea therapy option who have confidence in it, it can be equally difficult to find a dentist with the knowledge and experience needed to effectively manage a case.
I am pleased to introduce Dr. Jon Held, a Diplomate credentialed dentist in the field of dental sleep medicine. He will soon be taking care of our patients in the Prescott area, the Verde Valley, and most of northern Arizona. I have been splitting time between here and my office in Tuc-son and will focus my efforts there. It excites me to bring more providers into this arena and ask you to welcome Dr. Held.
The office will be renamed Sleep Better Southwest and there will be two locations as we add an address in Sedona to expand service. Our dedicated staff remains ready and able to serve you as we tackle this next phase. Submitted by SleepEffect, PLC Diplomate ACSDD and ABDSM Sleep apnea management the easy way.
