Long Island, New York (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
After hosting the most recent Pro Player Health Alliance event, Dr. Rein and Dr. Seltzer of Long Island Dental Sleep Medicine have become the go-to guys for NFL greats being treated for sleep apnea. David Gergen, President of Pro Player Health Alliance, says, "Dr. Rein and Dr. Seltzer are two of the finest dentists I know; I only refer the players I work with to the best doctors in the country." Since treating local legends and Super Bowl champions Bart Oates and OJ Anderson for sleep apnea with an oral appliance, they have solidified that reputition.
Seltzer and Rein's commitment to positively impacting the community through helping individuals get a better night's sleep has ultimately led them to becoming two of the most respected dental sleep medicine experts in the New York Area by the general public, retired players and national organizations. On December 5, 2013, Long Island Dental Sleep Medicine was an official screening partner with the Living Heart Foundation in the first HOPE Program Super Bowl Symposium screening.
Dr. Seltzer says, "Taking treatment to the players with Dr. Archie Roberts, Founder of Living Heart Foundation and the HOPE Program, along with Pro Player Health Alliance, has turned out to be one of the most rewarding times of our careers. It's nice to be able to give back."
