GOOD SLEEP IS
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is one of the most serious epidemics affecting the country right now - an estimated 1 in 5 are affected, and 80% of them are undiagnosed and unaware of the danger they live with.
I’m Dr. Alexandra Peri and I want you to know it doesn’t have to be this way.
I want to help you get the best sleep you can.

I'M DR. ALEXANDRA PERI, DDS
I first became interested in Obstructive Sleep Apnea when I was in dental school. Several close friends and family members had recently been diagnosed and I was intrigued that there was a treatment that a dentist could deliver. The more I studied the disease, the more I realized just how important good sleep is to a persons health. Good sleep boosts the immune system, increases energy levels, raises productivity and has a positive effect on mood. Everything in your life is affected by the quality of sleep you get. I came to realize that most people do not consistently get good sleep. In fact, many of us live with symptoms of bad sleep and don’t understand why we feel awful. If you need better sleep, I want to help you. Schedule an appointment and we will screen and test you for Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Your test results will be reviewed by a board certified sleep physician. If you can benefit from oral appliance therapy, I want to help you.
