Are oral appliances effective?

How do I know my patient is compliant?

Our Process - different from other practices

Will my patient have TMD problems with an oral appliance?

Why AADSM diplomats status matters?

Will I lose my patients once I refer them to you?

We understand how frustrating it can be when a patient is unable to tolerate their CPAP, and we are here to help. At Sleep Wellness Matters, our office follows the AADSM protocol for treating sleep apnea.

  • We will always send follow-up letters so you can follow along with your patient’s treatment.
  • We will always require a referral from your patient’s sleep doctor or primary care doctor.
  • We are in-network with most insurances and can secure GAP exceptions when we are not so it is easy for patients to use their insurance benefits.
  • We do not believe in delivering bulky and cheap appliances which makes it harder for patients to use them. Our appliances are streamlined and durable, and they all come with a 3-year warranty.
  • We believe that oral appliance therapy and sleep apnea treatment are important, so we make a point to attend various Continuing Education courses on the topic as well as reading new studies.
  • We always aim to be honest with our patients and will tell them if we think that Oral appliance therapy may not work for them based on what we have found during their consultation.
  • At our facility, we teach patients how to use bed wedges, nasal cones/strips, sleep masks, and other adjunct treatments. We also cover diet/weight loss and proper vitamin levels for healthy sleep hygiene.
  • Although oral appliances are newly proven to be effective, CPAP is still considered the most successful treatment for Sleep Apnea.

  • A copy of the patient’s Medical Insurance Card and demographic information
  • A Diagnostic Sleep Study
  • Medical record notes before and after the sleep study
  • A prescription for the appliance
