Basics of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that causes the stopping and starting of breathing.

Dailey DMD, our goal is to help educate patients on the warning signs and consequences of the breathing condition and help them get the comprehensive care they deserve. By working with local health specialists and general physicians, Dr. Dailey can help restore your normal breathing pattern and prevent long-term or permanent damage to your health.
