Sleep is an essential component of our lives and plays a vital role in both physical and mental health. Sleep awareness is rising, so is the prevalence of Sleep Disorders. Dentists can have an instrumental role in helping patients achieve a better quality of life, by recognizing and addressing sleep and airway disorders. However, Dental Sleep Medicine has been challenging in terms of predictability and workflow efficiency, resulting in many clinicians being reluctant to incorporate a Sleep & Airway program into their clinics.
During this webinar, you have an opportunity to join a candid discussion between Dr. Shouresh Charkhandeh and two MATRx plus doctors who will share their experiences in implementing a predictable sleep and airway management protocol into their practices. You’ll hear from a doctor who has been using MATRx plus in his practice for more than two years, and an ABSDM diplomate who implemented MATRx plus in his practice only a few months ago. Join us for an insightful and inspirational look into how these practitioners are helping people lead healthier and more productive lives with predictable sleep and airway management.

Dr. Doron graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine in 1998. He then completed a two year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency, also at the UConn School of Dental Medicine. Doctor Doron’s passion for providing a solution to his patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea began about four years ago. “I have experienced the consequences of sleep apnea personally” he said, “utilizing my knowledge and expertise to provide patients with a potentially life saving solution was a no brainer”. Dr. Doron is active in several national Dental Sleep Medicine societies, keeping current and furthering his education to the betterment of his patients. Doctor Doron’s knowledge of Sleep Disordered Breathing and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome and how to apply that knowledge in the clinical setting affords the patient with the best possible treatment outcomes. He is a member of the ADA, the Connecticut State Dental Association, the Hartford Dental Society, AADSM, ABDSM, and the AASM, and has been named “Best Dentist” in Hartford Magazine & “Top Dentist” in Connecticut Magazine each year from 2011 to 2019. He says that “keeping the lines of communications open with the patient’s physician/sleep physician is also an important part, not only in providing the best care but also in maximizing medical insurance reimbursement for the patient”.
