Why See A Diplomate In Dental Sleep Medicine

At Federici Dental, we work exceedingly hard to provide care for our patients and address their specific needs. This is important in all areas, especially for those patients who suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when the upper airway is intermittently blocked during sleep, reducing or completely stopping airflow. This condition can be dangerous for the patient and may lead to further health concerns. Luckily, Federici Dental has its own sleep expert, Dr. David Federici. He is our in-house Diplomate in dental sleep medicine and is the most experienced doctor in the Manahawkin area and South New Jersey for diagnosing, treating, and correcting sleep apnea. If you've got sleep apnea, come visit our office today!

What Is A Diplomate In Dental Sleep Medicine?

Being a diplomate not only sounds fancy, but it is also fancy! The American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM) certifies a dentist as a diplomate only after a grueling and intense educational process. Reaching this status in dental sleep medicine with an elite board certification that sleep physicians know and respect is crucial. ABDSM Diplomate status is the gold standard in dental sleep medicine demonstrating that a dentist has the technical skills, in-depth knowledge and professional judgment to provide optimal oral appliance therapy care.

Why Should I See A Diplomate?

If you suffer from sleep apnea, you want to see the best and receive the treatment that you deserve. Diplomates are not only experts in their field, but they are also experts in the United States. There are only 425 diplomates certified by the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. 

  • Diplomates offer the highest experience in regards to dental appliances that are custom fit to the patient's teeth and mouth
  • Diplomates are the only dentists who can create these mouth appliances for sleep apnea patients
  • Qualified dentists of AADSM can treat patients for OSA but do not have close to the level of training as Diplomates.
