Syed Adds Sleep Medicine At Her Clinic in Bloomingdale, MN

Distinctive Dental Care, a trusted name in dental health, is excited to unveil a new chapter in its commitment to comprehensive well-being. Dr. Haseen Syed, renowned for her dedication to healthcare excellence, is expanding her practice's horizons by introducing innovative Sleep Medicine services. With a firm focus on addressing the widespread, yet often undiagnosed, concern of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Dr. Syed is poised to transform the landscape of sleep health and overall quality of life for her patients.


The American Journal of Epidemiology's recent findings (Karl A. Franklin, 2015) reveals that 26% of adults face untreated OSA challenges. This prevalent condition disrupts sleep patterns and triggers potentially life-altering consequences such as recurrent nocturnal hypoxemia and heightened sympathetic distress. A study supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) shows a 75% higher risk of adults with sleep apnea developing long COVID. Dr. Syed, driven by her unwavering commitment to patient well-being, recognizes the pressing need for effective intervention and care.


Despite the established efficacy of Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) therapy as the traditional approach to OSA, concerns about its comfort and practicality have often deterred patients from seeking treatment. Fear of the prescribed "mask" leads many to avoid preliminary discussions about potential solutions. Attuning to these apprehensions, Dr. Syed is pioneering an alternative path to effective OSA management.


Recent updates from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (Kannan Rama, Leslie C. Dort, Christopher G Harrod, Sheren M. Thomas, & Ronald D. Chervin, 2015) emphasize the validity of custom fabricated oral devices as a viable option for OSA treatment. With specialized training in Dental Sleep Medicine, Dr. Syed's clinic stands at the forefront of this innovative paradigm shift. Her patients now have the opportunity to explore meticulously designed oral appliances engineered for optimal airway stability and patient comfort.

"I am dedicated to providing my patients with advanced solutions that prioritize both their health and their peace of mind," asserts Dr. Syed. "Our utilization of state-of-the-art Eccovision™ Acoustic Pharyngometer & Rhinometer imaging technology guarantees a precise fit for each oral appliance, enhancing its efficacy and ensuring a seamless experience for our patients."


Central to Dr. Syed's vision is a strong emphasis on patient education and awareness. Recognizing that many individuals lack comprehensive information about the implications of sleep disorders, she is determined to bridge this knowledge gap. By introducing oral appliance therapy as a viable, accessible, and comfortable option, Dr. Syed empowers her patients to take proactive control of their sleep health.


Furthermore, it's noteworthy that numerous private medical insurance plans and Medicare now offer coverage for these tailor-made oral appliances, making this advanced treatment option within reach for a broader spectrum of individuals. Dr. Syed's commitment to accessibility and patient-centric care shines through in every aspect of her practice.


For individuals seeking top-tier Sleep Medicine care that unites technological innovation, personalized treatment, and compassionate support, Dr. Haseen Syed and her accomplished team at Distinctive Dental Care are poised to redefine the standard of care and transform lives.


The distinguished dental clinic aims to educate and empower its patients through insightful dental knowledge. They provide valuable resources on their website covering diverse topics, such as the latest dental products like implants, comparisons between dental procedures like resin and amalgam fillings, and informative guides like "Dental Insurance 101," designed to unravel the complexities of insurance coverage clearly and concisely. Through these resources, Dr. Syed and her team continue to demonstrate their commitment to patient well-being beyond the treatment room.
