The Metz Center for Sleep Dentistry

Are you & your practice ready
for the immediate future of sleep medicine?

If you hesitated for even a moment, take action now toward success!

In 1915, Charles Mayo said, 
"The next step in Preventive Medicine must be made by the dentists."   
I believe this will prove to be true, if we take advantage of opportunity when it presents itself.

Dentistry originated in the Field of Medicine and now it is time to take advantage of the opportunity to be embraced by the medical community to resolve the public health concern of Obstructive Sleep Disorders.

Are you aware the future of healthcare can be reshaped by dentistry?
Dentistry, today, sits on a precipice. Now is the time to move toward medicine and a partnership with physicians!  Both medicine and dentistry have critical roles to fill to decrease the ravages of Obstructive Sleep Disorders.

The goal of the medical professions is to enable conditions for healing.  Dentistry has traditionally been focused on the "fix."  Today, we must move from "diagnose and treat" to "predict and preempt".

"The cultures of the physician and dentist are very different.  The fact is that physicians  
need dentists because they cannot adequately fit or maintain oral appliances. Dentistry  
needs medicine to monitor the health and medications of the patient. The two professions working together is very powerful." 
Now is the time cultivate your competency, expand your knowledge, network with physicians and grow your practice! 

How can you move forward?

"I have crafted an extended educational course with the end goal of true Competence in Sleep Dentistry!  My signature course will take you
to the level that I personally consider outstanding."

James E. Metz, DDS
"Sleep Medicine is not viable unless multidisciplinary approaches are the rule."
