A book written by a board-certified ENT and a dentist specializing in sleep apnea treatment is a new resource for patients who are interested in options other than CPAP to treat their sleep apnea.
Freedom from CPAP: Sleep Apnea Hurts, the Cure Doesn’t Have To by Dr David G. Dillard and Dr Mayoor Patel provides a uniquely comprehensive overview of sleep apnea from both an ENT and a dental perspective.

He has over a decade of experience in the treatment of ENT problems and obstructive sleep apnea. He is the patent-pending innovator of multiple devices and treatments that are the result of his many years’ experience in his field. Dillard held an academic appointment at Emory University School of Medicine, and currently holds an academic appointment at the University of Georgia School of Medicine.
Patel has earned multiple fellowships and is quadruple board certified in the areas of orofacial pain and dental sleep medicine. He presently is an adjunct faculty member with Georgia Regents University and The Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine. Contributions have been published in textbook chapters, and various professional and consumer articles. He also holds patents on oral appliances for sleep apnea and other related products.
