Sleep Disorder Centers

Sleep specialists are health professionals who are skilled at evaluating and treating sleep disorders.

They may be doctors, psychologists, or dentists who have had specialized training in sleep medicine.

They often work in sleep centers (also known as a sleep clinic or sleep study center) or dental sleep medicine facilities.

To get help with your sleep issues, you may need to see a sleep specialist at an accredited sleep center.

It has been shown to be effective for mild to moderate sleep apnea.
