Around 20% of Americans report getting less than 5 hours of sleep each night. Those with OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) often report snoring, morning headaches, daytime fatigue, irritability, high blood pressure, hypertension and more. Sleep Group Solutions, leaders in dental continuing education are teaming up with Ottawa Dental Laboratory to teach dentists how to treat patients for sleep apnea and snoring through oral appliance therapy (OAT).
Dental continuing education courses focusing on the treatment of sleep apnea have become an asset in dental offices across the country. During these courses, provided by Sleep Group Solutions, dentists and staff members learn proper sleep protocol including; sleep stages, screening technologies, clinical issues, home sleep testing, medical billing, appliances and more. Teaming up with Ottawa Dental Laboratory, a full service dental lab in Ottawa, IL will provide seminar attendees an in depth look into the exciting world of oral appliance therapy. “Our partnership with Sleep Group Solutions affords us the opportunity to help our dental clients expand their business through sleep medicine. We’re very excited to be a part of the treatment of such a life-threatening condition, and it all begins with education,” says Luke Caruso, President and CEO of Ottawa Dental Laboratory. SGS and Ottawa Dental Laboratory hosted their first seminar together in St. Louis, MO in May. The experience and feedback from the seminar attendees was extremely positive, and future seminar dates were added.
“The partnership makes sense. Ottawa Dental Lab is very good at what they do. They make a variety of sleep appliances, including the Respire Blue Series, EMA and the NORAD.

About Ottawa Dental Laboratory
The Ottawa Dental Laboratory has been serving the dental community since 1937. The lab was founded by Lucien “Tony” Caruso on a shoestring budget. Tony’s philosophy from day one was to “treat every case as though it were for your mother” which became the foundation for his success. Little did Tony realize way back then, just how strong of a foundation he had created, which now in it’s 3rd generation, supports 3 locations. It’s been seventy-five years in the making. Like the father before him, Luke, Jr. has mentored his sons, Luke, III and Jim, in the dental laboratory business. Luke, III is VP of CAD/CAM and New Technology. He is committed to the investment in innovative equipment, technology, and materials, as well as new product development. Jim is VP of New Business Development and oversees many of the operational functions of all three laboratories. He ensures that all three of the locations operate like a well-oiled machine in order to deliver the best products and service to their customers.
This deep-rooted family business continues to grow as their dedication and loyalty to the dental community remains constant. The Caruso family is committed to forge ahead in the twenty first century with the dental industry. They’ll continue to thrive and the key to their successful future will be to continue embracing the foundation of why the lab was founded in the first place: “to provide the finest dental prosthetics in the Midwest”. And they’ll not forget to “treat every case as if it were your mother’s” or in Luke and Jim’s case, their “grandmother’s.” They believe that the future of customer satisfaction will continue to be based on solid relationships of trust and respect. It is this commitment that will make dreams of the future come true.
