American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine Accredits Robert Finkel Dental Facility

Jan 18, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Robert Finkel recently received facility accreditation from the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

According to a release, the AADSM is a non-profit national professional society dedicated to the practice of dental sleep medicine. Dental sleep medicine focuses on the management of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea through the use of oral appliance therapy - an effective alternative treatment for patients who prefer it to CPAP. Once a patient is diagnosed with OSA by a board-certified sleep physician, a dentist trained in dental sleep medicine can provide treatment with oral appliance therapy.

"The accreditation program was developed to define excellence in dental sleep medicine," said Gail Demko, president of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. "Patients and referring physicians can have peace-of-mind when working with an accredited facility, knowing that the facility has proven, recognized excellence in every aspect of care." In order to become accredited, facilities must meet quality measures outlined in the AADSM's Standards for Accreditation of Dental Sleep Medicine Facilities. These standards detail expectations for the proficiency of a facility's dental director and staff; practice of policies and procedures to oversee the acceptance, documentation and billing of patients; and professionalism of consumer care, follow-up, service and safety.

"Physicians and dentists can work together to provide effective, alternative treatment options for sleep apnea patients," said Demko. "Physicians looking for distinguished dental partners should consult the AADSM website to find an accredited facility in their area." "Our team is dedicated to our patients in the Atlanta area and we are so proud to be recognized for the high level of quality care we provide," said Finkel dental director. "The accreditation also serves as a great tool for us as we continue to educate those with obstructive sleep apnea and their physicians about the treatments and relief we can provide." Robert Finkel is located at 1325 Satellite Blvd., Suite 1304 Suwanee, Ga.
