Do you or someone you know snore? Did you know that snoring is the #1 symptom for people who suffer from a potentially deadly disease called Obstructive Sleep Apnea, (OSA)? In fact, snoring can also lead to daytime sleepiness, difficulty concentrating, high blood pressure, and many more life altering issues.

It is estimated that more than 50 million Americans suffer from OSA. Despite this ever growing statistic, unfortunately over 90% still remain undiagnosed. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, OSA increases the chances of a heart attack, stroke, type-2 diabetes, obesity, brain damage, and depression.

Please join us for a discussion given by Dr. Stieber, and SleepTest.com, about the dangers of snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

At the end of the discussion, Dr. Stieber and his staff will offer a free oral airway screening to all attendees who are interested in finding out if they may be a candidate for this deadly disease.

For those who are struggling with a CPAP mask or have abandoned its use, don't despair. Dr. Stieber will share with you a highly successful alternative with oral appliance therapy. He has taken advanced training to help screen and treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
