The Rogers’ are Featured in Sleep Review Magazine!

We are excited to announce that we are currently featured in the May 2016 issue of Sleep Review Magazine! Learn the story of Rob Rogers, DMD, DABDSM, and Mary Beth Rogers, a ‘dream team’ in this well written article that reviews the couple’s major contribution to the world of sleep medicine and oral appliances. Within it, learn the origins of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM), the hurdles of oral appliances the Rogers’ have overcome, and their ongoing role in the sleep medicine industry. The article starts with a glimpse into the early days of sleep medicine and how it peaked the Rogers’ interest:

“When Rob Rogers, DMD, DABDSM, graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and launched his dental practice, now the Pittsburgh Dental Sleep Medicine Network, the field of dental sleep medicine did not exist. Sleep medicine itself was still a relatively young science. And when Mary Beth Davis (now, Mary Beth Rogers), vice president and director of administrative services for the Pittsburgh Dental Sleep Medicine Network, graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelors of Science in education, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) did not exist. Indeed, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) had just been founded the year before in 1975. But the winds of change could be heard—including in the childhood home of Mary Beth.”

Delve further into the new era of sleep medicine and see how the Rogers’ helped position oral appliances as an appropriate first-line treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by reading the full Sleep Review Magazine article, “A Dream Team: Rob Rogers, DMD, DABDSM, and Mary Beth Rogers” on the Sleep Review website.
