Dr. Radz found oral sleep appliances 10 years ago. Diagnosed with severe apnea, he was placed on a CPAP machine. Quickly he found that he was unable to wear this device. For a year, he just continued to suffer (as did his wife) with his apnea with no treatment. Then after reading several dental journals, he found that dentists were have been using oral appliances with excellent success on patients with obstructive sleep apnea. He researched, studied and eventually made his first sleep appliance for himself. The results were immediate and amazing. For the past 8 years Dr. Radz has worn an oral sleep appliance with excellent if not dramatic results. Upon seeing the huge change this made in his life, he dedicated himself to learning more and providing this care for his patients to help provide life changing, if not life saving, treatment for people that suffer from sleep apnea and snoring. For the past 7 years Dr. Radz has been working with patients and their physicians to provide an proven alternative for people that suffer with sleep apnea.
