Daniel Burton, DDS, a dentist in Grand Rapids, Mich, recently launched the Michigan Sleep Network to help both patients and healthcare professionals become more educated about and find effective treatments for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

With the launch of the Michigan Sleep Network, Burton is hoping to increase awareness that other treatment options are available for sleep apnea besides a CPAP device. Michigan Sleep Network was established to screen patients for possible OSA and to treat those diagnosed with custom oral appliances.

Burton offers a free consultation with each patient to determine if s/he is a good candidate for an oral appliance. He will also work with the patient’s healthcare providers to ensure coordinated treatment for conditions related to the patient’s OSA.
