Why Did You Decide to Become a Sleep Dentist?
Dr. Jones actually grew up in a dental-oriented family – his father was an orthodontist, and his father-in-law was a dentist! He learned a lot from both men, discovering just how rewarding the field could be. Today, he has both a brother and a brother-in-law who are orthodontists, another brother-in-law who is a periodontist, and two more brothers-in-law who are general dentists.
While Dr. Jones has loved his career as a dentist and learning about as many facets of the field as he possibly can, dental sleep medicine has become his primary focus. This is partly for a personal reason: he struggles with Obstructive Sleep Apnea himself. Because of this, he understands the struggles his patients face with traditional CPAP machines and also knows firsthand how helpful an oral appliance can be when trying to treat OSA!
