LI Snoring and Sleep Apnea has achieved status as an Accredited Dental Sleep Medicine facility in New York State. Our esteemed dental team has demonstrated that we meet the AADSM's high standards of professionalism and quality patient care. The purpose of these standards is to ensure that an accredited facility demonstrates professionalism, competence and practice standards regarding the treatment of patients with sleep disorders.

The quality of a patient’s sleep can have a detrimental effect on his/her well-being and overall health. Research studies have found that 1 in 15 people are affected by this common sleep disorder. When sleep apnea is untreated or poorly treated, it can lead to life-threatening consequences including strokes, chronic diseases and even car accidents caused by falling asleep behind the wheel.

It is imperative for patients with sleep apnea to be treated by a highly qualified, accredited facility which can provide proficient dental sleep medicine treatment. In addition, our accreditation supports fair reimbursement for dental sleep medicine services by assuring dental insurance companies that we provide patients with a superior level of care.

If you or a loved one is suffering from sleep problems associated with sleep apnea, we invite you to call 631.689.1800 to schedule for a FREE consultation.
