This summarizes the challenges facing dental sleep medicine today; it’s a confusing, disjointed landscape. A dentist who wants to grow a successful sleep practice has to spend tens of thousands of dollars attending courses, work with a variety of consultants and vendors, buy or lease expensive equipment and software, train and motivate their staff. Also, the dentist is trying to decipher the various mixed messages regarding the legalities of testing, diagnosing, and billing medical insurance.
Our unique program will enable you to simply, effectively, and profitably treat those suffering from the growing epidemic of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Our model is the first to bring all aspects of building and growing a sleep practice together into one complete program.
All you and your office have to do is treat the patient. You perform the exam, consultation, and provide the therapy, we handle everything else and send you a check.

There is a significant need to diagnose and treat sufferers who snore or who are at risk of having Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) with Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT), a safe, effective, and proven alternative to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). In general, traditional sleep centers have limited direct contact with the greater community and in many cases, patients who snore and are potential OSA sufferers are not seeking diagnostic testing and therapy.
To make it more likely that patients with OSA are identified, diagnosed, and treated, Comprehensive Sleep Services are partnering with preferred dentists to provide streamlined, effective therapy to victims of OSA.
