Dr. William Harper is a Diplomate in the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine and is an active member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). His credentials ensure you as a patient that your care is of the highest standard and meets all recognized guidelines in the treatment of sleep disorders and sleep apnea. Dr. Harper is currently the only dentist in the area to have completed this training and certification, including a Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency at the University of North Carolina.
Why is Training in Sleep Medicine Important for Patients?
The recent increase in diagnoses of sleep disorders has led to a dramatic increase in the use of numerous types of treatments and therapies to address snoring, sleep-disordered breathing and sleep apnea. Dentists can offer oral appliance therapy to patients with more moderate forms of sleep disorders but without proper training and certification, the outcome and impact on a patient’s overall health may not be optimal.
Dr. William Harper has committed many hours to additional training in dental sleep medicine to provide comprehensive, well-informed care for sleep-related disorders and snoring. This additional training and education in sleep medicine outs him in the top 1% of dentists when it comes to choosing the right local dentist to address your personal needs. Dr. Harper and the team at Coastal Virginia Sleep Solutions works closely with local sleep medicine physicians to ensure that the prescribed treatment is in the best interest of his patients and their health.
