Open Letter to Prospective Patients
from this Healthcare Provider

I am writing this letter to prospective patients who are contemplating an oral appliance for themselves or a loved one. It is important to be as informed as possible when choosing an experienced dentist to provide you with this therapy.

Since I brought the field of Dental Sleep Medicine to Central Texas in 1995, I have stayed at the cutting edge. With 24 years of clinical experience and having treated thousands of patients, my office is in the top tier of qualified and experienced providers for Oral Appliance Therapy on a national basis. I have treated the “untreatable” cases successfully; developed new techniques for sensitive patients with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue and controlled patients who have few or no teeth. I have also published numerous articles in respected medical and dental journals.

For patients with severe sleep apnea, we are able to combine different treatments and have been doing this for over fifteen years with hundreds of success stories.

As an in-network, credentialed medical provider, our office is able to provide you with the least out-of-pocket expenses and the best insurance coverage in the Austin metropolitan area.

I know that at times this therapy can appear quite easy. This is definitely not the case. The majority of dentists in this new field have taken a few seminars or made a few oral appliances. There is a significant learning curve for this therapy and only experience can provide you with a more predictable and positive treatment outcome. Complications can always be around the corner since life is unpredictable. Fortunately, my staff and I have the years of experience to treat these complications. My front office personnel have a total of 26 years of experience working with medical insurance for Oral Appliance Therapy and my clinical staff, including myself, have over 30 years of experience.

If you decide that Oral Appliance Therapy is the choice you want to make, I look forward to working with you.

Austin Apnea and Snoring Therapy can use oral appliances as an alternative to CPAP. Oral appliances have been registered by the FDA and may be used to treat sleep apnea when administered by a qualified dentist trained in Dental Sleep Therapy.
