About Us

Mission & Vision

Our MISSION and we choose to ACCEPT it: To Advance the Science and Practice of Dental Sleep Medicine through Education, Research and State of the Art Treatment Processes for the Benefit of Mankind.

We do this to serve both healthcare professionals and patients. Through APP-NEA, sleep physicians and dentists can offer services and solutions that will more effectively help their patients and grow their practices. APP-NEA offers a way forward for people who suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Snoring. We exist to diminish the barriers that too many encounter on their path to restful sleeps, improved daytime function and greater quality of life.

We do this in six key ways

...

1

By making the latest clinical research, accurate information and treatment solutions about and for OSA available to both patients and providers all in one user-friendly web-based solutions platform.

2

By connecting patients to sleep physicians and expert dentists who are able to diagnose and treat their sleep disordered breathing and, in turn, providing sleep physicians and dentists with a network of patients who seek their help.

3

By developing a proprietary, predictive algorithm, MAD-FIT™, powered by automation and refined by big data, that enables an APP-NEA-certified dentist to fit Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs) precisely from the first fitting.

4

By providing dentists with accredited training and certification in the field of dental sleep medicine as well as a scope of practice based on Guidelines set by American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

5

By implementing a complete out-of-the-box clinical and administrative system for the seamless integration of dental sleep medicine into new and existing dental practices

6

By offering MAD-FIT Retainer™, a unique custom oral appliance personalized to fit each individual user.

APP-NEA strives to be a global leader in dental sleep medicine and exists to quell the epidemic of sleep disordered breathing through innovative, simple and scientifically astute solutions and services.

Full Disclosure
Please be advised that APP-NEATM, LLC is a for-profit company. Dentists who use our website pay us a modest fee for the convenience (patients and sleep physicians do not pay us). However, we value scientific information and finding solutions that work for each individual with compromised sleep. We strive to provide you with unbiased and scientifically astute resources and we will not sell you anything that is not right for you. Specifically, if you are diagnosed with "Severe" Obstructive Sleep Apnea, you should try to use a CPAP machine (which we don't sell, but others do), not MAD-FIT. But if you are simply being treated for snoring or have "mild" or "moderate" apnea, an oral appliance like MAD-FIT, along with possible life style changes like losing weight, not smoking, and not drinking excessively, is the recommended treatment
On this website, we'll give you up-to-date information about snoring and sleep apnea and the different treatment options. Our citations come from reliable, scientifically sound sources. We provide you with links to scientific and clinical research on these issues and the treatment recommendations of responsible professional organizations like the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. If you would like to get in touch with a board-certified sleep physician for a sleep test & diagnosis, we’ll help you find one.
