We are very proud to share that our cosmetic dentist and the founder of our practice, Dr. Michael Fulbright, has recently achieved Diplomate status with the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). Dr. Fulbright has spent a large portion of his career pursuing additional education and training to further enhance his skills with treatments for sleep apnea and snoring, and this new distinction is a major indicator of how far he’s come.
The AADSM is an organization dedicated to the study and improvement of dental sleep medicine and oral appliance therapy for sleep-related breathing conditions. Part of its mission is to advance the success of treatment for sleep apnea and other related disorders that cause airway obstructions while sleeping. The organization provides access to educational and professional development support, numerous resources, and research for dentists who make the treatment of sleep apnea a focus of their practice. Dr. Fulbright has been a member of the AADSM for many years, and becoming a diplomate is essentially the gold standard and the highest accreditation one can receive in the organization.
At Fulbright Cosmetic & Reconstructive Dentistry, dental sleep medicine is one of our top priorities. Sleep apnea is a condition that can cause dangerous breathing pauses during sleep, severe snoring, debilitating symptoms during waking hours, and serious risks to general health. Patients who do not receive treatment for sleep apnea are at an even greater risk of the disorder becoming a life-threatening condition. Dr. Fulbright offers a variety of options to treat sleep apnea and snoring that can help reduce these risks and lead to a better, healthier night’s sleep.
