Dr. Rich is specially trained in screening for sleep apnea issues and has now limited his practice to the treatment of this condition. He works closely with several area sleep medicine physicians to assist in caring for this life-threatening condition. His dental sleep medicine practice, Sleep Solutions NW, is located a couple of miles north of Simply Smiles. You may contact him at 253-236-5240 or find out more at www. SleepSolutionsNW.com He will continue to collaborate with Dr. Padilla and Dr. Fields on the screening and identification of patients who may benefit from this potentially life saving therapy. When appropriately diagnosed with an exam by a sleep physician and an overnight sleep study, many sleep apnea patients can be treated with a discreet oral device worn at night, instead of a CPAP machine.
