New American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine Diplomate, Dr. Maria Sokolina Treats Sleep Apnea, Snoring


Clifton NJ and New York NY as of December 2016 - Local dentist Maria Sokolina is now helping Clifton and NYC residents get a more restful night's sleep. Dr. Sokolina of Harmony Dental Sleep Therapy recently became an American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM) Diplomat. Earning Diplomat status from the ABDSM is a unique honor that recognizes special competency in dental sleep medicine. With only 15 Dentist in New Jersey, 20 In New York and 289 in the USA and Canada. It is truley an accomplishment. "Sleeping with a CPAP machine, which includes a face mask, tubing and a constantly running motor, can be difficult, and many Clifton residents are unaware that an effective - and comfortable - alternative treatment is available," said Dr. Sokolina. "I'm committed to using my knowledge of dental sleep medicine to help treat my patient's snoring and sleep apnea, and provide Clifton residents with a better night's rest." While CPAP is the standard treatment for sleep apnea, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine estimates up to 50 percent of sleep apnea patients do not comply with or tolerate CPAP. In contrast to a CPAP machine, oral appliances are a "mouth guard-like" device worn only during sleep to maintain an open, unobstructed airway. Patients like oral appliance therapy because it is comfortable, easy to wear, quiet, portable, and easy to care for. "Oral appliance therapy often can equal CPAP in effectiveness and offer a higher patient compliance," said Dr. Sokolina. "I work with my patients, and their sleep physicians, to identify the right oral appliance device, custom fit devices to each patient and make any needed adjustments to ensure an open airway and a more restful sleep." Dr. Sokolina is located at 1066 Clifton Ave Clifton NJ 07013 and NYC 315 W 57th St Ste 209 New York NY. Patients with loud snoring and diagnosed sleep apnea sufferers with difficulty tolerating CPAP should contact Dr. Sokolina at 973-777-2731 to schedule a consultation appointment. Dr. Sokolina works closely with sleep physicians to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
