Congratulations to Jay Nelson, DMD, and his Nelson Dentistry, located on S.R. 54 in Lutz, a couple of miles west of the junction with S.R. 56, for earning program accreditation from the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). “We congratulate Nelson Dentistry on fulfilling the high standards required for receiving accreditation as a dental sleep medicine facility,” said AADSM president Dr. Gail Demko. “Nelson Dentistry will provide the highest quality care for patients with sleep disordered breathing.”

Dental sleep medicine is a growing segment of dentistry that focuses on managing snoring and obstructive sleep apnea with Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT), an effective alternative to the standard Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP therapy. Only a dentist trained in dental sleep medicine can provide treatment with OAT, a mouthguard-like device worn only during sleep to maintain an open, unobstructed airway.
