I saw Dr. Stern several years ago after trying CPAP for my sleep apnea. The CPAP was very effective, but only when I used it. As a physician, I’m aware how important it is to comply fully with treatment, and I truly intended and wished to keep the CPAP on every night. During sleep, however, this was not under my control, and I’d often wake up in the morning with … more
Just wanted to thank Dr. Stern for his help and expertise. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to sleep appliances and prevention of snoring.
With Dr. Stern’s expertise, my wife sleeps well and I can go on golf trips with my buddies without listening to their complaints about my snoring every morning.
His staff are very friendly

New Information Connects Obstructive Sleep Apnea with Depression
Snorting, gasping, or stopping breathing while asleep was associated with nearly all depression symptoms, including feeling hopeless and feeling like a failure, according to results from what authors say is the first nationally representative sampling to examine this relationship. They note that additional research may be needed to determine whether regular screening for these conditions by mental health professionals and sleep specialists … more
Sleep Apnea Linked to Silent Strokes
People with severe sleep apnea may have an increased risk of silent strokes and small lesions in the brain, according to a small study presented at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference 2012.

Sleep Apnea Spikes Death Risk
Sleep apnea is associated with an increased risk of death, according to new results from the Wisconsin Sleep Cohort, an 18-year observational study supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health.
Researchers found that adults (ages 30 to 60) with sleep-disordered breathing at the start of the study were two to three times more likely to die … more
Less Sleep Ups Risk of Diabetes and Obesity
A study by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) reinforces the finding that too little sleep or sleep patterns that are inconsistent with our body’s “internal biological clock” may lead to increased risk of diabetes and obesity. This finding has been seen in short-term lab studies and when observing human subjects via epidemiological studies. However, unlike epidemiological studies, this new study … more
The oral appliance has changed my life. It allows me to get a restful sleep and has stopped my snoring. It is a lot easier to use than a CPAP.
Dr. P. P. T., MD
When I was diagnosed with severe Sleep Apnea and I was told that I had to wear a CPAP for the rest of my life every time I have to sleep. I was very upset and scared. I started using the CPAP machine but felt uncomfortable all night.
Then, I found Dr. Stern on the internet and decided to see him. He introduced me to this really cool oral appliance … more
I am extremely satisfied with my sleep apnea appliance. My quality of life has improved tenfold. Thank you for everything.
Yes, I would like to say that the appliance has helped me. I do feel like I have more energy at work. It takes some getting used to. I have turned it up numerous times.
I have had the flu in the last little while and due to coughing did not wear my appliance and I did feel different at work on those days.
Just to mention, my wife says … more
Before using an appliance, nearly 3 years ago, I snored loudly. Since I started wearing the appliance nightly, my snoring is negligible.
Finally, a quiet sleep – for my wife! Thanks Dr. Stern.
I have been using my Oral Sleep Appliance for approximately 2 years and I cannot believe the difference it has made to my life.
I am more awake in the morning, meaning not tired, grumpy, and just plain feeling better to face the day.
I make sure that I use my appliance every night because I know the benefit to me and everyone around me. More importantly, I feel so … more
Thanks to the appliance that I am wearing, I no longer feel tired during the day and sleep better at night.
The appliance has been once of the best decisions I’ve made. I never knew what it was like to wake up feeling rested until now. I perform better at work, my focus is better and I’m more productive in everything I do. I actually enjoy waking up now. Life is better.
I feel better after I have used my Somnodent. My snoring has gone down from a scale of 10 to 3. My wife is happy and I am happy too. My Sleep Apnea is almost gone.
I am pleased to report that my sleep apnea has been significantly reduced by the dental appliance provided by Dr. Stern. I had unsuccessfully used a c-pap device with little improvement and much discomfort.
I can attest to improved sleep, increased energy, and virtual elimination of annoying snoring. Dr. Stern’s dental device is comfortable, effective and very easy to maintain.
I would recommend anyone with sleep apnea issues to visit … more
Several years ago I attended a Sleep Clinic due to my excessive snoring and sluggishness during the day.
As a result I was diagnosed with moderate Sleep Apnea and was referred to Dr. Stern, a
Specialist in Oral Appliances.
I was fitted for an Oral Appliance and during this meticulous process was always kept informed by Dr. Stern and his staff of the steps involved in the fitting of such … more
I have found that the oral appliance has changed my life for the positive. I feel my air passages opening the second I put in my appliance. It has significantly decreased my snoring, but more importantly, I get a great night sleep. Something I haven’t had in many years.
Thanks to Dr. Stern and his great staff.
The oral appliance has improved my life dramatically, I am sleeping much better. I am waking up feeling refreshed. I am not falling asleep in the morning when I am driving to work. I feel endorphins when I exercise. I have proof of increase oxygen intake when I am sleeping (with a second sleep study). I am very grateful that the oral appliance is working. I would highly recommend this … more
