Why Choose Sleep Effect?
What We Offer You
Our entire practice is dedicated to the treatment of sleep apnea. We have a small staff so we can provide personal and personalized care. Our center represents a departure from conventional dentistry. Dr. Goodwin founded the program to co-manage patients' care with a team that includes general care practitioners, sleep physicians, cardiologists, and other specialists. Improving Compliance Our program is designed to be more comfortable and less intrusive than traditional sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment. For patients whose conditions do not require an overnight stay in a sleep center, we offer home sleep testing equipment. For patients with more severe symptoms, we use an advanced diagnostic system that can predict their responses to an oral appliance. Our practice has experienced tremendous success treating sleep apnea with these small, custom devices. Traditional treatment with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine has several drawbacks, resulting in a compliance rate of only 40 percent after one year. Research has shown that as many as 95 percent of patients who use our custom CPAP alternative regularly wear their oral appliance.
