*As a physician, I deem this therapy to be medically necessary.


Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a medical condition that tends to become more severe with time, and

requires periodic re-evaluation by a qualified physician.


Oral Appliance Therapy is less effective in controlling this disease than CPAP, and patients referred

for this therapy may need to explore additional options of treatment if the appliance alone is deemed

to provide suboptimal management of the sleep apnea.


Copies of diagnostic and PAP titration PSG with full report are required for appropriate care and

to obtain medical insurance coverage.


Original Prescription should be mailed or delivered to info@wilhoitefamilydental.com
