“Dentists have a unique position in the patient’s life—you see patients every six months, you’re looking at their oral cavity and you are uniquely skilled to identify intra-oral science.” –

Dr. Domingue and guest host Dr. Rusty Fitton, delve into sleep apnea with this week’s guests, Dr. Sully Sullivan and Michael Cowan, sharing eye-opening stories of their family and friends’ experiences. According to the Mayo Clinic, “sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts.” What most people don’t know, is how dentists can help aid, prevent, and even treat this disorder. Listen in for how you can increase care for your patients!
