Robert Stoddard, DMD
Dr. Stoddard has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years. Caring for people in a gentle and compassionate manner has always been a hallmark of his patient care philosophy. Another component of his approach is that he believes treatment should address whole body health and how the many aspects of patient health interact. Because Sleep Apnea and TMJ touch upon so many aspects of patients’ health and lives, pursuing further education and training in these areas was naturally part of his mission.

After being diagnosed with SA himself, he knows what it’s like to live with this condition. He has been treating Sleep Apnea and TMJ using non-invasive and non-surgical oral appliance therapy for over 7 years and most recently Dr. Stoddard became a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.
