New Patient FAQs
It is entirely normal for new patients to have questions about their upcoming visits and treatments. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions to help you feel more at ease:
What is an Oral Appliance, and How Does It Work?
An oral appliance is a custom-made device that helps maintain an open, unobstructed airway in your throat when you sleep. It’s comfortable, easy to wear, and effective for treating snoring and sleep apnea.
How Do I Know if the Appliance Will Work for Me?
During your initial consultation, we’ll evaluate your condition and determine if oral appliance therapy is right for you.
Do I Need a Referral to See You?
No, you do not need a referral to come in. You can make an appointment directly with us.
Do I Need a Sleep Study Before My First Visit?
While a sleep study can provide valuable information, it’s not necessary before your first visit. We can discuss your symptoms and decide if you need a sleep study during your appointment.
What About Insurance Coverage and Costs?
It is covered by medical insurance (not dental), and we are in-network medical providers for most insurances, including Medicare and Tricare.
