The day I decided to become a dentist was the very first time I remember visiting one. I was in the 3rd grade and I remember, almost as if it were yesterday, how cool all of their equipment was. From that moment on I was like a rocket, nothing could stop me from being what I most wanted to be: a dentist.
I went into dental sleep medicine almost naturally, not only because of my passion for dentistry but also because I myself suffer from an obstructed passageway when I sleep. I know the products that work for sleep apnea because I wear one, and I approach sleep apnea treatment from this angle of personal experience and an understanding of what’s effective.
Of course, I am also human. I’ve been married to my beautiful, beautiful wife Ginger since 1993 and we have two handsome sons together. On our free time, we love to travel, play golf, and live life for our kids. It’s an amazing experience being a parent, something I would never give up for anything in the world.
If you suffer from sleep apnea, know that there are solutions out there that are more comfortable and just as effective as CPAP. I wear one and I can tell you that the results are like night and day.
