FRISCO, TX, January 12, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- KAAM - AM770 coordinates a new radio show called "The Sleep Doctor" and invited Dr. Kent Smith, DDS, D-ABDSM from Sleep Dallas to be the host of the inaugural show. Listeners not only are able to learn what this life threatening medical condition called sleep apnea is about, but they can phone in to talk directly with Dr. Smith and ask him any sleep disorder- related questions. This program will air live every Tuesday from 1:00pm to 1:30pm Central Standard time on AM770.
Sleep Dallas Director Dr. Kent Smith was chosen by this radio station to be the new show host because he has been treating sleep apnea patients for over 15 years. He offers his patients mandibular advancement appliances at his dental practice and help thousands of patients get more healthy sleep. Moreover, Dr. Smith coordinates his own seminar locally about six times a year. He educates dentists and their team members how to screen and help their existing patients who might have sleep apnea. Dr. Smith hopes this radio program can educate the general public and teach them to be aware of the quality of their own sleep. Among his objectives are save marriages by creating quiet bed partners, create less sleepy drivers and a less fatigued population.
"Over 20 million American are suffering from sleep apnea, but 85% have not been diagnosed, and most have no idea how it is affecting their health." Said Dr. Smith "I want to let the community know that snoring is one of the primary symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, and patients do not have to live with this. This condition is not only breaking up many relationships, but can lead to many serious health issues such as depression, memory loss, heart disease and diabetes.
"One study showed that 76% of physicians who are not sleep specialists do not screen for OSA" Dr. Smith explained. "My mission is to educate as many people as I can, and this new radio show will afford me this opportunity. I invite all of you to tune in and listen to my show and call in to ask questions."
