Home Sleep Study
Here at Dental Excellence Integrative Center we know life can be hectic, making it impossible to take time off to do a In Lab Sleep Study. That’s why Dental Excellence Integrative Center has something called a Home Sleep Study Device.
Our Sleep Study Device is a portable diagnostic device that used the innovative technology to ensure the accurate screening, detection, and follow-up of sleep apnea. Its ease of use is unparalleled in the marketplace and it is greatly complemented by the fact that that Sleep Study Device testing is done in the comfort of your own bedroom; an environment that best reflects the pattern of your sleeping habits.
We have invested in this technology for our patients and this device is the same device you will get from a sleep lab if you choose to do a home sleep study. We want to make it readily available for you as we are a one stop shop for many of you health needs.
