You fall asleep in meetings. You have dozed off behind the wheel. You just don’t feel as sharp as you used to and recently your boss shook her head over another “careless mistake.” You try to focus and work but you are just so darned tired. Your wife has mentioned that you snore, but could that really be keeping you from getting your rest?

If you have obstructive sleep apnea, you aren’t just sleepy, you may be risking your job, your health – even your life!

Why wait to ask your doctor at your next check-up? Why keep suffering from painful daytime sleepiness? Why keep taking risks with your health?  Take our simple test or call a ProSomnus® dentist near you. You deserve to live life to the fullest.
