At Federici Dental, we take patient education very seriously, and encourage you to be proactive about your health. As your local Manahawkin sleep apnea experts, we wanted to call to your attention something recent that happened in our local community.

Two engineers were found to have undiagnosed sleep apnea, causing two commuter railroad accidents 13 weeks apart. Although New Jersey law requires operators to have frequent exams to ensure they are physically fit for the job, these men had no recent documentation and may not have been undergoing treatment for sleep apnea. You can find out more in CNN's recent article: Sleep apnea led to tired engineers and 2 train crashes, NTSB says.
