New York, NY (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
Dr. John Tucker has been nominated for Sleep Review’s Best Sleep Doctors & Facilities, Class of 2012. Sleep Review’s Best Sleep Doctors & Facilities, Class of 2012 is a “prestigious recognition program to recognize the best sleep doctors and facilities that redefine best practices and help others advance in the sleep industry.” John Tucker, DMD maintains a general practice of dentistry in Erie, PA, and is founder of Erie Dental Sleep Therapy, dedicated to those who suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea and have been unsuccessful in using CPAP.
Dr. Tucker is one of only about 175 dentists in the United States and Canada that is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. He is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the International College of Oral Implantologists and the American Dental Association.
Dr. Tucker has published numerous scientific articles in Dentistry Today, Dental Implantology, and the Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry. He has lectured to dentists nationally and internationally on the recognition of sleep-breathing disorders and management of obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy.
In his practice, Dr. Tucker uses oral appliances that gently move the lower jaw forward to keep the muscles in the upper airway from collapsing. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has recommended Oral Appliances for the management of mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea since 2006.
“This has become the most rewarding phase of my 33 years of providing dental care for the Erie area,” said Dr. Tucker. “Comments such as “Thank you for giving me my life back!’ from Ms. Susan Peters of Erie are a common and appreciated occurrence from my patients.”
