5 Questions to Ask Your Sleep Apnea Dentist Before you sign up for an oral appliance, you should ask a few questions to determine if the specialist treating you has the experience and range of appliance to provide you with the best treatment possible.

Do you have specialized education?

Many dentists and “sleep specialists” actually have little to no training using oral appliances correctly to treat snoring or OSA.  They may have prescribed an appliance for a mere handful of patients during their time in the dental field.  Dr. Duling is a diplomate of the American Academy of Dental Sleep medicine, and has passed a board examination after years of continuing education.

No dentist should offer only one option when it comes to oral appliances because there is simply no one option that is appropriate for all patients.  Dr. Duling offers patients 5 different options that are further customized to meet your needs.

Do you include follow-up?  

Unfortunately, some dentists make appliances and do not include follow-up appointments.  Research shows that follow-up is one of the most important factors for an appliance to successfully treat sleep apnea.  Dr. Duling includes one year of follow-up appointments for all patients.

Do you work with my insurance?

  Oral appliance therapy is covered for most OSA patients by their medical insurance including Medicare.  Dr. Duling is able to bill your medical insurance for oral appliance therapy.  Dr. Duling’s office verifies insurance coverage prior to beginning treatment and will bill your medical insurance on your behalf.

What happens if my appliance is lost or damaged? 

 Most medical insurances will only cover an appliance to treat obstructive sleep apnea every 5 years, leaving patients responsible for the full cost of a new appliance if theirs is damaged or lost.  Dr. Duling’s office offers an in-office rewards program to prevent this from happening to her patients.
