New York (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
David Binder, D.D.S., "The Manhattan Dentist," has dedicated his practice to public service, in the form of educating the public about the dangers of Snoring and Sleep Apnea. As a Diplomate of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, Dr. Binder has been recognized for having special qualifications to treat Snoring and Sleep Apnea by offering Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) to his patients. Snoring and Sleep Apnea are dangerous afflictions that affect not only those who suffer, but the people around them and the general population. For more information, call (212) 753-0500.
For 17 years, Dr. Binder has recognized the enormity of the public health crisis created by the approximately 20 million people in the United States who are undiagnosed. Both conditions can be signs and causes of high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, erectile dysfunction, and depression - not to mention daytime drowsiness, which can be deadly for drivers, pilots, passengers and others. "It's a privilege to offer OAT to patients who previously suffered from these not-so-silent afflictions," says Dr. Binder, "and the appreciation shown by those whose lives have been so markedly improved by OAT is quite gratifying."
In an effort to reach beyond his patient base, Dr. Binder, "The Manhattan Dentist," also lectures on the topic and has established a special section on his web site to address the issue (http://www.manhattannydentist.com).
He is affiliated with several sleep centers, including New York University - Bellevue Sleep Disorders Centers and Mount Sinai Medical Center - Department of Sleep Disorders. "The Manhattan Dentist," Dr. Binder taught OAT to dentists at the New York University College of Dentistry (NYUCD) for three years. Additionally, Dr. Binder is a member of Snoring Isn't Sexy®, an organization which brings awareness to the public about dentistry's role in recognition and treatment (http://www.snoringisntsexy.com) of snoring and Sleep Apnea.
Dr. Binder, "The Manhattan Dentist," is devoted to improving the lives of New Yorkers and was recognized for having done so, when he received the Humanitarian Award from the New York Academy of Dentistry, for his work in helping to identify victims of the 9/11 attacks.
Dr. Binder has been practicing general dentistry for over 25 years, and teaching for 23 of them. He currently teaches the surgical and restorative phases of implant dentistry to dentists at the NYUCD. He received his dental degree from New York University College of Dentistry.
