Dr. Alvarez receives training

Dr. Jonathan Alvarez DDS, associate of Great Florida Smiles & Orthodontics in Santa Rosa Beach, recently returned from Jupiter, Fla., where he received extensive training in the treatment of sleep apnea in the dental office.

New studies have shown that many snorers and sleep apnea patients can tolerate an oral appliance better than CPAP. Dentists can frequently provide relief from snoring and sleep apnea in a few visits. Call 850-622-5888 or visit GreatFloridaSmiles.com.
