Pennsylvania Dental Sleep Medicine Experts
The average person spends about one third of their life sleeping, normally receiving on average eight hours of sleep per night. Sleep is very important to physical well being and plays an important role in physical and mental health. The quality of sleep a person sustains on a regular basis is just as important as the quantity and also contributes to a person’s health and well-being.According to a 2002 National Sleep Foundation study, more than 100 million people in America fail to get a good night’s sleep on a regular basis. Over 70% of American adults experience sleeping problems at least two to three nights per week, and more than 30% report lack of sleep interfering with their daily activities. In fact, the medical community has recognized that sleep disorders contribute to the development of various medical conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Fortunately, most sleep disorders can be successfully treated or controlled once properly diagnosed.

Funny, but these days, going to the doctor usually means seeing everybody else except the doctor – and if you’re lucky enough to actually talk with the doctor, rather than only wave to them down the hall, it’s only for a brief few minutes. You have questions and concerns but they’re just too busy for you.
At the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Sleep Medicine, you will always see the doctor – sometimes both doctors. Every single visit. We’re here for you and we’re always happy to answer your questions and hear your concerns about sleep or any other health issue.
