People, Get Tested!

We want you to get treatment from your St. Augustine dentist or a sleep specialist. Recently the news reported that airline pilots will need to be screened for OSA.  The same has been true for professional truck drivers for a long time.  It's not just your life but those around you that can be effected by OSA.  Some who have OSA, fall a sleep driving their own car.  Not a truck or a plane, but their personal vehicle.  You can imagine how dangerous that would be.  

Another concern is kids.  Do you know of a child that consistenly snores?  We are not talking about the occasional, stuffy nose, or head in the wrong position, but snoring most nights?  If they do, they need to be tested for OSA.   There is a very high correlation between kids who snore and attention deficit disorder.  Medications do not have to be the only answer.  Getting tested for a SBD or OSA can lead to answers of WHY the child may have ADHD.  Its possible to treat the source of the problem, rather than just the side effects.
