We are a Telemedicine company for the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of Sleep Related Breathing Disorders that was developed to ensure that our patients receive the most efficient, cost effective, and streamlined approach to the management of their disease. The patient will be evaluated by a board- certified sleep physician via a computer or mobile device with a real time consultation from the comfort in their own home or office.
Over the last 20 years there has been an increased awareness of the growing population of patients with OSA who struggle to get the care that they deserve. OSA is a medical disease and requires an evaluation by a sleep physician who then obtains a sleep study to make the diagnosis. In the past, the primary form of diagnosis was an in-lab study and treatment was inevitably placing the patient on CPAP which was deemed the “Gold Standard”. While treatment with CPAP was nearly 100% efficacious, the compliance compromised its effectiveness and over 50% of the patients failed CPAP and became discouraged with treatment and the whole process.
In October 2017, the ADA recommended that all dentists screen their patients for Sleep Related Breathing Disorders. In most states, dentists cannot order a sleep study or make the diagnosis of OSA. Oral Appliance Therapy has been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of mild to moderate OSA and some cases of severe OSA and is supported by both the AASM and AADSM guidelines. Oral Appliance Therapy is greatly underutilized in the US due to the barriers, roadblocks, insurance issues and referral process and regulations that have impeded the treatment of patients and the collaboration between physicians and dentists.
It is the goal of this company to increase the utilization of Oral Appliance Therapy in the treatment of OSA and assist and empower dentists to treat the majority of their patients with StopSnoringSleeoBetter.com providing Sleep Medicine consultations via Telemedicine following best practices and AASM and AADSM protocols. Our approach will be more efficient and convenient to patients and provide treatment in a more timely manner.
