Why see a dentist first with Sleep Apnoea?
A dentist has the best initial view of any patient with obstructed airways. We see far more than the GP doctor and this is our area of interest.
With having worked with various medical Specialists in this area for over 40 years, Dr Gibbins coordinates the team management necessary for such a severe medical issue as OSA.
Not only does Dr Gibbins treat patients with sleep apnoea, he also works as a dentist at his dental clinic, Future Dental.
