Medicare Approved Provider for Sleep Apnea and Snoring Device

Dr. Jim Moreau of MoreSMILES Dental is now a Medicare-approved provider for oral appliances used as an alternative to CPAP in treating sleep apnea patients.

A high percentage of patients who have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea are intolerant of the CPAP, widely regarded as the standard in treating sleep apnea patients. The FDA-approved oral device provided by MoreSmiles can be used in cases of mild to moderate OSA, or in more severe cases when a patient is CPAP-intolerant and the oral device provides assistance in the absence of any other form of treatment.

Dr. Moreau, a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, works with board certified sleep medicine physicians and area sleep labs to secure an accurate diagnosis and provide sufficient follow-up treatment to ensure success.

The office works with medical insurance carriers as well as Medicare to provide patients with assistance in filing claim forms for assignment of benefits for the oral sleep device.
