As a Diplomate with the Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorders Dentistry and founder of the Snoring and Sleep Apnea Center, Dr. Gruenes brings the most current knowledge, treatment and services to her patients. She identifies sleep disordered breathing via non-invasive airway assessment, and provides management of the problem with Oral Appliance Therapy.
