Dr. Awad answered every question I had. I went into this visit extremely frustrated regarding my struggles with sleep apnea. The condition spans multiple disciplines and I was personally looking into orthodontic treatment before my OSA diagnosis. Dr. Awad referred me to another specialist in sleep orthodontics and gave me a solid plan to treating the sleep apnea without having to try to find individual doctors knowledgeable in this area on my own. Seeing Dr. Awad was a huge time saver and answered every concern I had before this visit.

Dr. Awad is a leader in the procedure I needed. I had come to him, interested in a more invasive, out of date procedure, and he informed me that the less invasive, more contemporary procedure would be more appropriate. There are other doctors who still perform the more invasive procedure and it would have resulted in a less positive outcome for me. I was very fortunate to be referred to Dr. Awad.
