Sleeptest.com: Our Pledge to Our Patients
At Dental Solutions of Avon/Indy, we pride ourselves on providing holistic dental care to our patients. This means that we understand the relationship between your oral health and your overall health. We also understand that other health issues, such as lack of quality sleep, can affect your health.
With the goal of improving the quality of life for our patients, Dr. Weida and Dr. Sitaram are proud to announce that they have signed the Sleeptest.com “No Patient Left Behind” pledge. This pledge renews our commitment to providing comprehensive care for our patients.
What Is Sleeptest.com?
SleepTest.com is dedicated to ensuring that people with airway health problems get the diagnosis and treatment they need to breathe easy. The Foundation for Airway Health “was formed to help the public realize their maximum potential by championing the recognition, diagnosis and treatment of airway-related disorders through collaboration, awareness, research, education and access to care.” The FAH consists of a variety of medical professionals, including allergists, dentists, ENT’s, orthodontists, nutritionists, and more.
Why Take the Pledge?
The FAH aims to involve all the different specialists who have specialized knowledge regarding the airway and someone’s ability to breathe. Currently, only 15% of sufferers with an airway problem are detected and treated. Our office has joined this pledge because we want to be a resource for our patients.
Sleep disorders can have a debilitating effect on your overall health, and we want our patients to live full lives free of the stress, anxiety, depression, and other conditions associated with sleep disorders. So, we will begin screening our patients for airway and sleep problems, and will provide resources for their diagnosis, treatment, and referral. Many people with airway disorders may not even realize that they have a problem. For example, people suffering from sleep apnea often do not know that they’re having issues, because the problems occur when they are asleep.
At Dental Solutions of Avon/Indy, our goal is to help our patients access the care they need. We are proud to have signed the Foundation for Airway Health Pledge and look forward to helping our patients have both healthier teeth and better sleep.
