I have been a member of many, many study groups, societies and associations, but the BEST group I have ever been affiliated with is AAPMD…


It is a cutting edge group that is willing to look at what is really happening in the Sleep and Breathing space.

This group is changing the course of dental health and has created a safe forum for collaboration between all the parts of medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, speech pathology and so much more!

The enrollment fees are affordable, the seminars are short, well-delivered, exciting and comprehensive. And, the amazing archives … All I can say is these archives are a goldmine of knowledge like no other!

Thanks to all of the pioneers of AAPMD!”
