Improving Health: Newly Accredited Dental Office in Stamford Offers a Better Night’s Sleep

American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine Recognizes Local Office for Excellence

(Stamford, CT) November 2017 – Our dental office is helping Stamford-area people get a more restful night’s sleep. The Dental Office of Jeffrey Cahn, DMD recently received accreditation from the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM), joining an elite group of centers around the nation recognized for proficiency, professionalism and procedural excellence regarding the treatment of patients with sleep apnea and sleep-disordered breathing. The Office of Jeffrey Cahn, DMD is the only accredited facility in lower Fairfield and Westchester County.

The AADSM is the non-profit national professional society dedicated exclusively 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 Harold Smith, DDS, 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, offices 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.”

“Physicians and dentists can work together to provide effective, alternative treatment options for sleep apnea patients,” said Dr. Smith. “Physicians looking for distinguished dental partners should consult the AADSM website to find an accredited facility in their area.”

For the newly-accredited Dental Office of Jeffrey Cahn, DMD, of Stamford, the program represents an opportunity to distinguish the facility and increase local understanding and acceptance of dental sleep medicine.

“Our team is dedicated to our patients in the greater Stamford and Westchester areas and we are so proud to be recognized for the high level of quality care we provide,” said Dr. Jeffrey Cahn, 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.”

Dr. Jeffrey Cahn at Gan Yeladim Early Childhood Center!

Dr Jeffrey Cahn spent Tuesday morning, March 20, speaking to the children about dental care at Gan Yeladim preschool in Stamford, CT.

" It is very important to teach young children how to prevent dental disease.", said Dr Cahn. " It is also extremely important to demonstrate that a trip to the dentist can be a fun and positive experience for a child."

 Young children instinctively have a fear of the unknown, so they are shown a brief power point presentation to explain the steps of a pediatric dental visit. Also, the children get the chance to visit with a dentist outside of the dental office in their preschool, a non threatening and comfortable environment.

" Besides," said Dr Cahn, " What can be more fun than spending some time with classes of preschool children?"
